Burglars 'caught trying to break into William, Harry's house'

world Updated: Aug 30, 2009 13:47 IST

Two bungling burglars have been caught while trying to break into a house which Prince William and Prince Harry share at their Royal Air Force training unit in Shawbury, a media report said.

The two Princes, who are training at RAF Shawbury in Shropshire, were not in when the duo tried to break in. The secluded property is under 24-hour armed guard and the robbers were spotted within seconds, the 'Daily Mail' reported.

"I can confirm that two men were arrested at an unspecified address in Shropshire. They were cautioned with conspiracy to commit burglary," a Spokesman for West Mercia Police was quoted as saying.

27-year-old Prince William is currently undertaking a training course to become a helicopter pilot along with his 24-year-old brother Prince Harry. The country house they are staying in is near the base but its location is not disclosed.

A Clarence House Spokeswoman said: "It's a matter for the police."
