A friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was involved in a nightclub fight last month.

A friend of Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been involved in a nightclub brawl.

Till Bechtolsheimer - who knows the royal couple through his sister Olympic gold medallist Laura Bechtolsheimer - got into an altercation after he was accidentally pushed by fellow clubber Daniel Kurkowski at the Dream Hotel in New York City last month.

Till's girlfriend Julia Kadioglu reportedly made matters worse as she smashed a bottle of lager over Daniel's head after the fight broke out, which left him with a nasty cut.

Julia - who graduated from St Andrews University at the same time as Prince William and Duchess Catherine - was reportedly escorted out of the swanky premises in handcuffs.

However, she was later released without bail after her arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Her lawyer Benjamin Yu told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "My client insists on her innocence. She's indignant she was even arrested."

Till is the grandson of billionaire real-estate baron Karl-Heinz Kipp and the royal couple - who have seven-month-old son Prince George - are close friends with the Kipp family.

Last year, Prince William (31) and Duchess Catherine (32) attended the wedding of Laura and her beau Mark Tomlinson, which took place at the Swiss Alps in Switzerland.
