LONDON (AP) - Security fears have prompted authorities to briefly remove images showing the day-to-day working life of Britain's Prince William from his website.

Britain's Ministry of Defense says the images were taken down after an "administrative oversight" meant that they had not received proper military clearance.

The pictures showing the second in line to the throne going through his daily routine as a Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot included images of unclassified user names, passwords and computer screens. The ministry said in a statement Tuesday that passwords and user names were reset as a precaution and that the photos were reissued.

The 10 images on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's website show him getting himself a cup of tea and making his own bed, among other routine tasks.
