1982: When Michael Fagan met the Queen in her bedroom and urinated on the corgi food

1072698 1982: When Michael Fagan met the Queen in her bedroom and urinated on the corgi food

MICHAEL Fagan spent 10 minutes of 1982 talking to the Queen, who was in bed, after he climbed Buckingham Palace walls and up a drainpipe. It was the second time he’d broken into the Palace in a month.

He says of the latest incident of intruders in the Palace:

“I am really quite shocked after all that’s gone on, terrorist wise, that he could get in that easily. Security must have been pretty lax. I think there’s got to be some questions asked. It’s ridiculous. I think this time the Home Secretary should resign, no doubt about it, because he didn’t resign for me when I did it. But this time it’s deathly. Bombs going off everywhere and someone got that far, come on! We were told security was tightened after I got in.”

Palace break in: did any police think to search Prince Andrew?

prince palace guns1 Palace break in: did any police think to search Prince Andrew?

CONFUSION as to what really happened when a man was found in Buckingham Palace tourist trail after hours (the Mirror says he’d paid to be there; the Indy said he scaled 12 floors) was only made worse when two days later Prince Andrew was challenged by police. Did they pull gins. Yes, says the Express. No, say the police.

Andrew went on the record:

“The police have a difficult job to do balancing security for the Royal Family and deterring intruders, and sometimes they get it wrong. I am grateful for their apology and look forward to a safe walk in the garden in the future.”

TO Buckingham Palace, where the talk is of terrorists. Sky News says

A security review has been launched after a break-in at Buckingham Palace when a man scaled a fence to get inside the Queen’s home. Police said the man had been found “in an area currently open to the public during the day” and was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage. A second man was arrested outside the palace for conspiracy to commit burglary following the incident shortly before 10.30pm on Monday.

An inner-city mansion packed with shiny things is always going to be a target.

Princess Diana gives five stars to Naomi Watts’ Her Last Love film

naomi watts Princess Diana gives five stars to Naomi Watts Her Last Love film

NAOMI WATTS is plugging her new film, Her Last Love, the story of her rumoured love affair with Dr Hasnat Khan:

“There were definitely moments when I felt Diana’s presence – I dreamed about her a lot, too, and that’s a first,’ says Naomi Watts. ‘I kept wondering to myself: “Would she have liked it?” So I found myself constantly asking for her permission to carry on. I had saturated myself with Diana and her life and I felt this enormous responsibility of playing this iconic woman.  It felt like I was spending a lot of time with her. There was one particular moment when I felt her permission was granted. That won’t sound right in print, I know.”

Indeed.

Princess Diana murdered by a mentally ill SAS fantasist

2430421 Princess Diana murdered by a mentally ill SAS fantasist

THE silly season was punctuated by the return of Princess Diana. News was that someone in or close to the SAS murdered Di. So said “Soldier N”. The story was broken by Channel 4, which noted:

“The allegations, if true, ask some serious questions  of Soldier N’s mental state of health”

Soldier N’s shocker was first made in a letter written in 2011 by his in-laws. This note was part of the second court martial against one of N’s colleagues’s, namely sniper Sgt Danny Nightingale who was found with a stack of ammo and a Glock pistol in his possession – souvenirs of overseas ops. N was testifying against Nightingale.

Prince George: The Daily Mirror fills pages with hate and love for Royal baby

HOW does the Daily Mirror report on Prince George? With confusion, covering all angles in a welter of hagiographic praise and anti-monarchical rants presented as Republicanism:

Today The People (the Mirror’s Sunday cousin) tells readers:

Prince William is to take newborn son George to Princess Diana’s grave at the Althorp estate, the Sunday People can reveal.

The emotional pilgrimage to Diana’s resting place at the Spencer family’s ancestral home will be made by Wills and wife Kate this autumn.

Why wait until autumn? Why a pilgrimage? The headline says he has made the trip a “vow”.

Royal baby: Lupo the dog picks out the names ‘Ace’, ‘Kirk’ and ‘Joey’

PA 17079318 Royal baby: Lupo the dog picks out the names Ace, Kirk and Joey

STILL awaiting for the arrival of Kate Middleton’s baby, we turn for news to Hello! magazine. Lupo, Wills and Kate’s dog, has been talking:

“According to reports, Lupo has been nothing but co-operative — helping his owners choose their baby’s name by tapping on scraps of paper with his paw on which they’ve written a selection of their favourites.”

As Kirk Douglas told us in the film Ace in the Hole:

 “I can handle big news and little news. And if there’s no news, I’ll go out and bite a dog.”

As any fool knows, dogs are useless at names. It’s Joey the budgie Kate wants:

AUSTIN Mitchell’s Tax Rate Is Lower Than That Of The Prince Of Wales….

A fact which makes his comments in the Commons yesterday really rather interesting.

Mitchell announced that the Prince of Wales pays tax at a lower rate than the poor do. He reached this conclusion by doing something fairly interesting:

Austin Mitchell said that the Prince’s accounts show that he paid less direct and indirect taxes as a percentage of income that the “bottom quartile of households” in Britain.
