An unidentified man arrived at England’s Windsor Castle on April 27, posing as a priest. According to NBC News, he spent the night time consuming and consuming, earlier than being given a mattress within the barracks, which aren’t positioned on fort grounds. At 9:20 a.m., the safety raised an alarm, and the police eliminated the intruder from the sleeping quarters.

Queen Elizabeth II was not at her Berkshire residence at the time, however, moderately having fun with a private break at her Sandringham property about 100 miles away.

“We received a report of an outsider at Victoria Barracks in Sheet Street, Windsor,” a Thames Valley Police spokesperson instructed NBC in an announcement. “Officers attended and removed the outsider from the barracks. No further action was required.”

That’s to not say the incident might be brushed beneath the palace’s rugs. A British Army spokesperson instructed NBC News: “The Army takes this breach of security extremely seriously and it will be thoroughly investigated as a matter of priority.”
