An intruder reportedly ‘posed as a priest and spent the night’ at The Queen’s Windsor Castle residency.
The incident allegedly took place on April 26 and it’s believed the man left just ‘hours before’ the 96-year-old arrived.
A source reportedly told TalkTV: “[He] said his name was Father Cruise and claimed to be a friend of the battalion’s padre, the Rev Matt Coles. He was invited in and offered something to eat in the Officers’ Mess.”

They went on to claim that the alleged intruder was ‘drinking with officers in the bar’ and ‘telling stories about his life,’ adding: “He was telling lots of tall stories, and the lads were enjoying his banter and having a few drinks.
“It was only later when he started talking about how he had worked as an ejector-seat test pilot and had some organs replaced that the chaps started to get suspicious.”
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Thames Valley Police has confirmed the incident with a statement that read: “We received a report of an intruder at Victoria Barracks in Sheet Street, Windsor, at 9:20am on Wednesday [April 27].
“Officers attended and removed the intruder from the barracks. No further action was required.”
A Ministry of Defence spokesman also told the publication: “The Army takes this breach of security extremely seriously, and it will be thoroughly investigated as a matter of priority.
“This incident is now part of an ongoing investigation, and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
