The man, believed to be in his 50s, was spotted carrying two knives outside the central gate of the London tourist landmark.

LONDON — Police used a stun gun to arrest a man armed with knives outside Buckingham Palace on Sunday as throngs of tourists gathered to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony there.

Two knives and a pair of sneakers were left inside a cordoned off area outside the palace gates
A pair of sneakers were cordoned of by the police really? blink lols
Were they that smelly they had to be cordoned of for the safety of the queens nose and the public? laugh

Sorry I know this is probably seen as a serious potential threat  towards HM or the ppl standing there (the shoe bomber, anyone?)
but dang that image hit my funny bone!
"Oh no watch out, he has a big mouth, knives and a pair of shoes! How strangely dangerous" "Hey I know! let zap 300v trough the guy, just to be sure" easter-lol

William and Lupo: the real royal love match

They're so safety conscious in London, esp.  after the 7/7 bombings.  There are probably lots of threats on the lives of the royals that we don't hear about.  As much as I loathe Waity and Willy, I don't wish actual harm on them.  It would just make them into martyrs anyway.

HM will be at Sandringham until after the 6th of Feb, the anniversary of her accession to the throne.  The guy is probably unbalanced,  if he was seriously plotting to harm HM, he could at least go to where she is.

In the company of an expert guide, enjoy an Exclusive Evening Tour of Buckingham Palace when the Palace is not usually open to the public.

I just received my e-news letter from the royal collection trust and noticed this little tidbit.
Now we know that BP is usually only opened up to the public fo a short time during summer when the queen resides at Balmoral, right?
Do you think this might be a 'test' to see if they could open it to the public more often?
I mean she isn't in BP much during winter either as she stays in Sandringham for about five weeks so..
Perhaps this means that in time they might do the opposite from Windsor castle: open during the week but closed during the WE when HM stays there.
So maybe in time weekend openings for BP ?
Would bring in a lot of of money for the collection.

Any thoughts?

A burglar broke into Buckingham Palace after climbing a wall and kicking open a door.

The man was arrested in a royal state room on suspicion of trespass, burglary and criminal damage after police were alerted.

A suspected accomplice was held in the street outside the royal residence and arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle.

Both men were questioned at length before being bailed.

Full background checks were being carried out by officials seeking to rule out any connection to terrorism.

No members of the Royal Family were present when the break-in occurred at around 10pm on Monday.

However, a probe is under way to ensure their safety is not compromised. The Queen has been told of the break-in.

Probably James; the Midds have to finance their lifestyle somehow and he has to think of his financial future.

I wonder where all that security money is going; with all that money, they should have state of the art sensors and cameras everywhere.

Apparently 2 days after the break-in, officers took Andrew down at gunpoint in the garden believing him to be an intruder. 

So of course there's now an inquiry since Andrew is throwing a fit.

They have put the security money in hiring more RPO's to carry their luggage and shopping bags instead of using security measures that work.

They should be asking the RF why there isn't a more modern security system developed; they are paid a fortune for that very purpose on a yearly basis.

Security is a separate issue to the Soveriegn Grant which is maintenance not secuity. Security for the royal palaces comes from the police budget.

A knife was found when officers searched the man outside the Palace at 11.30am.

The security scare came just six weeks after a man was arrested on suspicion of burglary after climbing a fence to get into Buckingham Palace.
