July 11, 1982, a British man invaded Buckingham Palace in the early morning and smoothly entered Elizabeth IIs bedroom, triggering concerns about the security of Buckingham Palace. Nearly 37 years after this incident, another man recently crossed the front door and burst in, while the Queen of England was asleep at Buckingham Palace.

According to reports in the Mirror and Daily Express, the latest security breach occurred around 2 a.m. local time on the 10th. A man crossed the fence at Buckingham Palaces front door and was arrested when he tried to hit other doors to enter the main building.

There was an intruder in Buckingham Palace and the Queen was sleeping in her bedroom, a royal insider told the media. The man had been around for several minutes before the police arrested him. Thankfully, he was caught when he was determined to enter the palace and ready to hit the other doors.

Insiders also expressed concern and said: Why can anyone cross the fence and enter the courtyard of Buckingham Palace without being immediately prevented? Does the temperature sensor and CCTV not work? The Queens safety should be of the utmost importance.

Another source said that it took the police about four minutes to arrest the man and quickly confirmed that he was not carrying any weapons. A Metropolitan Police spokesman later confirmed that a 22-year-old man was detained by police on suspicion of illegal intrusion.

Police are investigating why the man was not immediately prevented from entering Buckingham Palace courtyard. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the incident, saying it was the work of the police.

British media pointed out that the invasion caused people to worry about another major security loophole in Buckingham Palace. Royal insiders also pointed out that the man of the invasion might be copying the 1982 intrusion, which made people feel very scared. On July 9, 1982, the then 31-year-old British man Fegan invaded Buckingham Palace in the morning, climbed into the Queens bedroom by climbing the wall and other means, and then began to talk to Elizabeth II about family problems. The Queen ordered him to go out while pressing the emergency button beside the bed and dialing the Buckingham Palace switchboard, but there was no immediate response. Fortunately, the Queens housekeeper, Paul Walbrook, came back from a dog walk and found the emergency and drove Fegan out of the Queens room before the police arrived.
