Queen Gets Locked Out Of Her Own Castle

Queen Gets Locked Out Of Her Own Castle

The Queen was locked out of her own castle earlier this week in a rare security mix-up. Ah well, it happens to the best of us, Liz.

Her Maj and her entourage arrived at Windsor Castle on Thursday afternoon (5 March). However, her black Range Rover was forced to stop on the driveway as the gates failed to open.

A female member of staff hopped out of one of the cars and tried to get the gates open - pushing and pulling the doors to no avail.

Realising the gates weren't going to open, the convoy u-turned in the driveway and headed off for another entrance.

The Queen could be seen sat in the back of the car wearing a headscarf, while one of her beloved pooches looked out the window.

The 93-year-old monarch usually heads to Windsor Castle on Thursday afternoons before heading back to London on Tuesday.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, one onlooker said they'd 'never seen anything like it in 30 years'.

They added: "I'm not sure if someone was sleeping on the job or simply that they were not expecting her, but it's unheard of. And it's not often you get to see a queen locked out of her own castle." Fair point.

Earlier this week, there was a much nicer break in Royal protocol, after Prince William posed for a selfie with a young fan.

On his recent trip to Ireland, the Duke of Cambridge was handed a bouquet of flowers by Jennifer Malone, who then decided to take the opportunity to ask him for a quick photo.

While the Royal Family don't usually pose for photos, it seemed as though Wills was keen and quickly leaned in so Jennifer could get the snap.

Jennifer's mum shared the photo of Twitter where it went viral and was flooded with comments.

One person said: "Jennifer you must be one amazing and beautiful young lady. Obviously even Prince William couldn't wait to take a selfie with you!! The Sweetest. Favourite post so far."

Another said: "Beautiful pics Jennifer. Agree, William is kind, friendly and classy. A good man."

And a third added: "Fabulous pictures & lovely to have, isn't he a gent and wasn't he lucky to meet you."
