Recommended Posts

I'm not surprised........have you seen how expensive those concert harps are! And the Royals are renowned for the meaness of the wages the pay - she'd probably get more cash for busking for an hour than anything that lot have ever paid her.

It's just so out of kilter with the image.

Royal harpist accused of burglaries

Monday, June 01, 2009, 14:00

Royal harpist Jemima Phillips has appeared in court charged with burglary and fraud.

The 27-year-old, who was the only musician to perform at the wedding reception of Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall, is accused of burgling three houses and faces one charge of fraud by false representation.

Wearing a dark jacket and trousers, Phillips, of Mork, St Briavels, near Lydney, appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on Saturday.

Malcolm Perry, for the defence, told the court: "Miss Phillips is a highly gifted musician and indeed played at the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles."

The 27-year-old blonde, who has held the position as official harpist to The Prince of Wales, also performed in the reception hosted by the Queen for the 2012 Olympic Bid.

Prestigious venues which the acclaimed harpist has played at include Balmoral Castle, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Windsor Castle, The Guildhall, The House of Commons and The House of Lords.

Phillips also performed at the birthday celebrations of Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra and featured in the first concert to be recorded from the ballroom at Buckingham Palace.

Phillips, who is a Royal College of Music graduate and a former semi-finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, was released on bail on the conditions she lives at her home in St Briavels, and reports to Coleford Police Station on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10am and 12pm.

Her co-accused William Davies appeared before Magistrates later in the day on Saturday.

The 40-year-old, of Grove Street, Cheltenham, faces three charges of house burglaries alleged to have been carried out on May 22, 25, and 28. The court was told he was jointly charged on these matters with Phillips.

Graham Dono, for the prosecution, said three house burglaries took place at night. He said: "Items were removed from those properties. In two incidents the house was occupied by people at the time."

He said items taken included mobile phones and a lap top. Davies, who wore a black tee shirt, was remanded in custody.

Neither Davies or Phillips entered a plea.

Davies and Phillips will both appear in Gloucester Crown Court on June 10.

And fraud, sounds as if she may have been on the fiddle.
