LONDON (AP) — London police arrested a 25-year-old man early Saturday morning after he allegedly scaled a wall and entered the royal stables at Buckingham Palace.
The man was arrested at 1:25 a.m. on Saturday for trespassing on a protected site, London Metropolitan Police said in a statement. He was taken to a London police station, where he remained until late morning.
Officers found the man outside the royal stables after a search of the area. He did not enter the palace or its gardens at any time, police said.
The 300-year-old Buckingham Palace is under renovation and King Charles III does not reside there.
The monarch was in Scotland on Saturday.
