A couple of intruders broke into Queen Elizabeth II’s Windsor estate last Sunday, only a few days after another royal breach on the property reported.
The suspects who were identified to be a 31-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman reportedly scaled the fences at the Royal Lodge, close to where the 95-year-old Queen walks her dogs and rides horses, according to The Sun.
Though reports show that the new widow was not on the grounds at the time when the incident took place, but Prince Andrew was, according to the available reports.
The intruders were reportedly arrested and later released on bail, and that comes only six days after a 44-year-old Spanish woman who claimed to be Andrew’s fiancée, was allowed on the grounds for 20 minutes before being arrested.
A source told The Sun, “This is an astonishing lapse. Everyone was on high alert after the first intruder, now this happens. Heads could roll. It is unforgivable.
“The couple wandered around for ages before anyone spotted them and police were called. Andrew was at home at the time. You have to wonder what on Earth is going on up there.”
The same sentiment was echoed by Ken Wharfe, Princess Diana’s longtime bodyguard who said, “It is totally unacceptable and makes the Queen vulnerable. This is very worrying and things really need to change.”
Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly been residing at Windsor Castle instead of Buckingham Palace during the coronavirus pandemic with Prince Philip before the Duke of Edinburgh passed away.
