There were reported break-ins at Buckingham Palace in both 2013 and 2019.

On both occasions no items were successfully stolen.

Then there was the infamous tale of Irishman Michael Fagan in 1982.

In response to be a bet at his local Irish pub, Michael, then 31, scaled a drainpipe at Buckingham Palace.

After exploring the halls of the palace, he successfully broke into her Majesty’s bedroom.

Stunned, they had a brief conversation before he was removed by two policeman.

He was not charged with trespassing and spent six months in a psychiatric facility.

His mother said at the time: “He thinks so much of the Queen. I can imagine him just wanting to simply talk and say hello and discuss his problems.”

The event has gone down in British royal history as one of its most major security lapses.
