A woman has sparked a major royal security review after she was discovered inside Prince Andrew's home in Windsor.
The Sun reports she spent 20 minutes walking around the gardens of the Royal Lodge in Great Windsor Park, before getting into the actual building, where the Duke of York was inside at the time.
According to reports, the woman got past security at the gates at 11am on Monday after claiming she had been invited for lunch with the Duke.
She was eventually detained in the lobby of the residence, after asking a member of staff where Prince Andrew was, and police were called.
The intruder said she had flown in from from Spain to marry the prince. She also told police her name was Irene Windsor and she lived at the residence with her fiancé Andrew.
Local Thames Valley Police confirmed in a statement: "Thames Valley Police were called to the Royal Lodge at Windsor Great Park on Monday morning to reports of a female trespasser.
"The woman, aged 44, was intercepted and arrested. She was subsequently de-arrested and has been sectioned under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act.
"The investigation into the incident continues, but there was no risk to any individual on the site. Due to the female being sectioned, we will not be commenting further at this time."
It was also reported that police found maps of other royal residences in the woman's handbag. They also found a self-defence key chain, that featured two sharp prongs.
A source told The Sun: "She was very confident and walked around like she owned the place.
"That potential weapon apparently caused the police some concern.
"It is being dealt with as a major security breach."
A security review is now being carried out.
