I expect you are right about the armour, but I doubt that her protective detail would encourage the handgun.

Here is footage of what happened when shots were fired in the presence of Prince Charles (in Sydney in 1994): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9e_GoHngOIE. The bloke in the greyish-pink tie at 0:10 is HRH's personal bodyguard; all the rest of the chaps in dark suits who jump the gunman are bystanders, including the premier of New South Wales and the Australian of the Year award recipient who was there to receive his honour. The police arrive at 0:16, probably intent on saving the perpetrator from the crowd.
