Queen in security scare as couple ‘break into estate near where she walks dogs’

Two trespassers were arrested after allegedly breaking into the Queen’s Windsor estate.

A man, 31, and his 29-year-old girlfriend are said to have climbed the fences at Windsor’s Royal Lodge.

The spot is close to where the monarch goes riding and walks her dogs.

The Queen, who is living nearby at Windsor Castle, is said to have been a regular visitor since Prince Philip died last month.

She wasn’t in the lodge at the time, although Prince Andrew is reported to have been, according to the Sun.

Police found the intruders last Sunday, April 25, in the grounds of the lodge.

The site includes All Saints Chapel, where the Queen, 95, goes to church.

Both were arrested and taken to Maidenhead police station by Thames Valley Police officers, before later being released on bail pending further inquiries.

The force confirmed in a statement: "Thames Valley Police was called to reports of two trespassers in the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Great Park on Sunday afternoon (25/4).

"Two people, a 29-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from London, were arrested on suspicion of being found in or upon enclosed premises and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue. There was no risk to any individual on the site."

The latest security scare comes just days after a woman was reportedly wrongly let in by guards to the lodge grounds, which is Prince Andrew’s home.

The Spanish national, 44, spent 20 minutes walking around on April 19 before being arrested on suspicion of burglary.

After police officers were called to the scene she claimed she was engaged to the prince and lived with him, according to reports.

She was later sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Ken Wharfe, who was Princess Diana’s personal protection officer for seven years, told the Sun: “When you take these incidents into account then it is a farce.

“It is totally unacceptable and makes the Queen vulnerable. “This is very worrying and things really need to change.”
