Looks like someone wanted to feel like king of the castle.
An unidentified man arrived at England’s Windsor Castle on April 27, posing as 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. At 9:20 a.m., the security raised an alarm, and police removed the intruder from the sleeping quarters.
“We received a report of an outsider at Victoria Barracks in Sheet Street, Windsor,” a Thames Valley Police spokesperson told NBC in a statement. “Officers attended and removed the outsider from the barracks. No further action was required.”
That’s not to say the incident will be brushed under the palace’s rugs. 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.”
