Buckingham Palace intruder came 'within metres' of sleeping Queen - 'very worrying'

Man, 22, arrested after climbing Buckingham Palace fence at 2am Buckingham Palace break in: Man scales fence while Queen sleeps - Daily Star

An intruder has broken into Buckingham Palace in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The 22-year-old man, who broke into the palace at 2am on Wednesday morning, was able to wander around for four minutes banging on the doors before he was apprehended.

The suspect is in police custody. This has led to fears that the 22-year-old was trying to copy Fagan as he would have known Her Majesty was in residence with her standard flying over the palace.

Buckingham Palace confirmed there was an intruder and that the Queen was notified of the incident.

They also added that the situation isn't being treated as terrorist-related.

The incident was strangely similar to a break-in nearly 37 years to the day, when Michael Fagan managed to reach the Queen's bedroom in 1982.

Our royal insider revealed: "There was an intruder at the Palace while the Queen lay sleeping in her bedroom and he was on the loose for a good few minutes before the cops arrested him".

Luckily the 93-year-old's home is locked at night so the trespasser couldn't gain access.

The royal source added: "This intruder got into the Palace nearly 37 years to the day since Michael Fagan ended up getting inside the Queen's bedroom".

A man reportedly climbed over the front gates of the palace, banging down the doors of the royal residence.

Two days later the Metropolitan Police apologised to the Duke of York after officers challenged him in the gardens of Buckingham Palace at around 6pm.

In 2013, a man was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage when he was caught in one the Palace's state rooms after scaling a 12ft fence, The Telegraph reports.

"How is it possible all these years later that someone can climb the fence and get right inside the grounds without being stopped immediately?"

The freakish conversation saw the 31-year-old schizophrenic tell the Queen about his family problems.

It was the Queen's long-time aide Paul Whybrew - still employed by the Queen to this day - who came to the rescue.
