The queen has been hit with another security scare after a male and female intruder climbed over a fence and broke into her Windsor estate, the claim reports.
The man, 31, and his girlfriend, 29, were given access to the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park last Sunday.
The lodge is Prince Andrew’s official residence and he was home at the time of the incident, insiders said.
On the grounds is the All Saints Chapel where the 95-year-old queen – who last month still mourns the loss of her husband Prince Philip – attends church.

Both intruders were arrested and taken to Maidenhead Police Station, but have since been released on bail.
It comes just weeks after a 44-year-old woman who claimed to be engaged to the Duke of York was let into the Royal Lodge by clumsy guards.
