After Man Spends Night in Windsor Castle Barracks, Probe Launched

-

Seems like someone wanted the title of king in the castle.

On April 27, an unidentified man entered England’s Windsor Castle posing to be a priest. According to NBC News, he spent the night eating and drinking, before being given a bed in the barracks, which are not located on castle grounds. Security raised alarm at 9:20 a.m. and removed the intruder. 

Queen Elizabeth II was not at her Berkshire residence at the time, but rather enjoying a private break at her Sandringham estate about 100 miles away.

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

This does not mean that the palace will ignore the incident. A British Army spokesperson told NBC News: “The Army takes this breach of security extremely seriously and it will be thoroughly investigated as a matter of priority.”
