Two arrested after trespassing close to Prince Andrew’s house | Leisure

LONDON (AP) – Police arrested two people after receiving a report of intruders near the home of Britain’s Prince Andrew, the second eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II.

Thames Valley police said a 29-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from London, were arrested on April 25 after a report from intruders in the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park the Lodge, Andrew’s official residence.

On April 19, the police were also called to the Royal Lodge.

The Sun newspaper reported that a 43-year-old woman spent 20 minutes in the lodge’s grounds during the previous incident after telling security guards that she would be having lunch with the monarch’s son.

The woman managed to get into the house but was arrested after asking a staff member where Andrew was and saying she was his fiancée, the paper said. Thames Valley police said the woman was detained under the Mental Health Act.

Andrew shares the house with his ex-wife Sarah, the Duchess of York.

Andrew, 61, has stayed largely out of the public eye since 2019 in the controversy surrounding his friendship with the late American convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
