Panic Rooms And Bulletproof Walls: George And Amal Clooney Step Up Security For Twins

George and Amal Clooney have beefed up their security after recent breaches have left them fearing for the safety - and privacy - of their newborn twins, Ella and Alexander.

As reported in this week's Grazia, the new parents are determined to ensure that their children grow up in the most normal way possible. After pictures of the twins were published in French magazine Voici, George reportedly pledged to take legal action against the photographers who illegally obtained the images by scaling a fence.

'Make no mistake: the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,' he said at the time. 'The safety of our children demands it.'

The case is reminiscent of when Kate Middleton and the royal family took legal action against a French magazine for using long-lens cameras to snap the Duchess of Cambridge on holiday sunbathing.

As if this incident wasn't enough, Amal has recently been threatened for her work as a human rights leader while defending ex-Maldivian president Mohamed Nasheed. Both events have led the couple to increase their security team, employing a round-the-clock guard service to surround their homes in LA, the UK and Italy. They've also added video surveillance, bulletproof walls, panic rooms and even basement bunkers.

‘Amal is already concerned for their safety, which has only got worse since the birth of their children,’ an insider told Grazia. ‘The latest incident has really galvanised her and George. They are hell-bent on doing whatever it takes to protect the twins and they’ve told their security advisors that money is not an issue when it comes to ensuring their safety.'
