At the beginning of May it was revealed that the British monarch spent the end of her Easter in a rather unusual way. A man dressed as a priest is alleged to have cheated the security forces and broken into her property. It is still unknown whether he managed to meet the Queen.
‘Happy Easter Dear Elisabeth!’
The whole thing is said to have happened during Easter. According to the scarce information revealed by British forces a man disguised himself as a priest and without showing any proof of identity he managed to get inside one of the best protected places in Great Britain – the Windsor castle, which is the place of permanent residence of Queen Elisabeth II.
‘Hi, I am a friend of your battalion’s padre. You will let me in anywhere I want, won’t you’
Not only did the man manage to get inside a ‘highly-secured castle’, but he also spent a night among the royal guards protecting Elisabeth II. He succeeded in tricking the personnel into believing by claiming to be the battalion’s padre’s friend and at the same time he just flooded them with anecdotes suggesting that he had fought in the Iraq conflict. It is really difficult to believe that it was enough to win their trust and receive a very friendly welcome.
Guards to fire
The royal security only realized that it was an intruder after a couple of hours, which is next day at 9:20 AM. It is still unclear what made them see through him. Did he decide to pay a visit to the Queen? Perhaps we will never find out the truth. For an outsider the whole story is quite entertaining but for the security personnel protecting the royal family this nothing but a massive failure as it clearly shows how much the system is actually worth.
