The royal couple were returning to Buckingham Palace along Pall Mall when their chauffer-driven Rolls-Royce was forced to halt by another car which blocked their route. A man appeared from a light coloured vehicle and fired six shots, all of which it is said were not directed at the royal couple, but left four people in hospital. Picture shows: The scene at the Mall where Princess Anne's limousine car was attacked in the shooting incident. 20th March 1974.
