Britain is investigating a security breach by a ‘fake priest’ near the Queen’s residence

LONDON (Reuters) – The British military said on Tuesday it had opened an investigation after news emerged that a man posing as a priest spent a night in a barracks with soldiers assigned to protect Queen Elizabeth II near her residence at Windsor Castle.

The Sun newspaper reported that the scammer was allowed to enter the Coldstream Guard Barracks without showing any papers or identification papers, then eat, drink and exchange stories with the soldiers.

The newspaper said the Queen was not in Windsor during the incident, which occurred last Wednesday.

A Ministry of Defense spokesman said: “The military takes this security breach seriously and will investigate it fully as a matter of priority. This incident is now part of an ongoing investigation, so it would not be appropriate to comment further on this matter at this time.”

The Sun newspaper, citing a source, reported that the man claimed to be a priest and told “long stories”, but doubts began to arise about his identity when “he began to talk about his work as a test pilot for ejection seats and replacement of some of their organs.”
