Ex-aide to Prince Philip charged with sexual assault

One of Prince Philip's former aides, Benjamin Herman, has been charged with three "indecent assaults" in the '70s, the Associated Press reports.

Herman, now 79, was employed by Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's husband, from 1971 to 1974. The alleged victim was 12 years old in 1972, when the assaults are reported to have started.

Herman will appear in England's Wimbledon Magistrates Court on Monday, the AP reports.
