Queen Elizabeth's Security Called Into Question After Imposter Sneaks Into Army Barracks Near Windsor Castle
Yikes! Queen Elizabeth slept near an imposter, who claimed he was a fake priest, The Sun revealed.
Coldstream Guards didn't check credentials and ID and let him onto the property.
“The guy turned up at the gate, said his name was Father Cruise and claimed to be a friend of the battalion’s Padre, the Rev Matt Coles. He was invited in and offered something to eat," a source said. “Within a couple of hours he was drinking with the officers in the bar. He was telling lots of tall stories and the lads were enjoying his banter."
The insider added, “It was only later when he started talking about how he had worked as an ejector-seat test pilot and had some organs replaced that the chaps started to get suspicious. Checks were made in the morning. It was apparent this guy wasn’t a bonafide priest.”

The stranger supposed spoke about receiving a medal for bravery in the Iraq War. The man stayed over, but the next morning is when things went downhill: cops escorted him off the property just a few hours before the matriarch, 96, returned home.
According to a source who spoke to TalkTV, the man was not arrested, and he apparently has mental health issues.
The whole situation has got everyone on edge, as the Platinum Jubilee will take place next month.

We are trying to resolve this issue and it’s not easy."
