The police were forced to arrest two intruders last week, a man, 31 and his girlfriend, 29. The two had managed to scale the fences around the Royal Lodge before being apprehended by the police. Now the second such intrusion in weels, former security staff had expressed their concern over the two break ins.
Crucially, the Royal Lodge is where the Queen walks her two corgis although it is not thought Her Majesty came into contact with the intruders.
The pair were later taken to Maidenhead police station before they were released.
One source told The Sun: “This is an astonishing lapse.
“Everyone was on high alert after the first intruder, now this happens.
“Heads could roll. It is unforgivable.
“The couple wandered around for ages before anyone spotted them and police were called.
“Andrew was at home at the time.
“You have to wonder what on Earth is going on up there.”
Just six days earlier, a woman was let into the grounds by guards mistakenly.
The woman had claimed to be Andrew’s fiancee.
The Queen has spent the majority of her time in Windsor over the last year due to the pandemic.
She moved there with Prince Philip to isolate away from coronavirus.
It is thought the Queen will relocate permanently to Windsor and use Buckingham Palace for official functions.
