British Police arrested a man at Windsor Castle and jailed him under Mental Health Act. 

LONDON – The man with a crossbow was arrested for entering Windsor Castle, where Queen Elizabeth celebrated Christmas. He is now being detained in the Mental Health Act, London’s police announced on Sunday.

The police reported that the 19-year-old man from Southampton in the south of England was detained within a few minutes of entering the castle’s grounds on Christmas morning. He did not enter any of the buildings.

“The man was taken into custody and has undergone a mental health assessment – he has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and remains in the care of medical professionals,” the police stated. 

“Following a search of the man, a crossbow was recovered.”

Queen Elizabeth, a victim of most of the COVID-19 epidemic on the grounds of Windsor Castle, is spending Christmas at Windsor Castle along with her young son Prince Charles, his wife, Camilla, and other close family members.

According to The Mail this Sunday, the teenager arrested was using rope ladders to climb the fence made of metal.

Security breaches in royal residences are not expected. However, the most severe one during the reign of the queen occurred in 1982 when an intruder broke through an unprotected wall to enter Buckingham Palace, her London residence, and then walked into a bedroom in her bed.

The queen did not make a public presence on Saturday. However, in a recorded Christmas message for the country, she spoke about mourning the passing of her husband, Prince Philip that passed away in April, aged 99. The couple was married for seventy-three years.
