A CONVICTED Libyan gun smuggler was a guest at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, it has been revealed.
Tarek Kaituni, 54, who has known Prince Andrew for more than a decade, joined the 800 guests at St George’s Chapel in Windsor for the wedding of the Duke of York’s daughter to Jack Brooksbank.
He was also invited to the black-tie reception for the newlywed’s closest friends and family at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, the Mail on Sunday reported.
Kaituni was convicted of trying to smuggle a sub-machine gun into France in 2005 – the year he met Prince Andrew, 58.
His ex-wife Lisa van Goinga, a model, said she believed he intended to kill her when their relationship ended.
He helped to arrange meetings for the Duke with the late dictator Colonel Gaddafi, who before his death in 2011 faced an international warrant for crimes against humanity.
All of Andrew’s known meetings with Gaddafi were private and none were arranged by UK Trade and Investment, for whom he worked as a trade envoy.
