41 years ago He Asked for Some Cigarettes

34-year-old intruder Michael Fagan breaks into the bedroom of Queen Elizabeth in Buckingham Palace, Westminster, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

Fagan wandered the palace corridors for several minutes before reaching the section where the royal apartments were located. In an anteroom Fagan broke a glass ashtray, cutting his hand. He was still carrying a fragment of the glass when he entered the Queen's bedroom. The Queen woke when he disturbed a curtain and initial reports said Fagan sat on the edge of her bed. Fagan then asked for some cigarettes which were brought by a maid who had been cleaning a neighbouring room. Duty footman Paul Whybrew, who had been walking the Queen's dogs then appeared followed by two policemen on palace duty who removed Fagan.
