Thousands of people have wanted to say goodbye to Elizabeth II in recent days, since she died on May 8 in Balmoral, where the monarch usually spent the months of August and September. Despite long queues, the vast majority have strictly adhered to the rules imposed to pay their respects to the deceased, but yesterday a man set off the alarm by skipping the security perimeter – thus outsmarting ten royal guards. his – around to the coffin and came to touch the coffin, which has been in the Palace of Westminster since Wednesday.

Police immediately arrested the man after an “argue” around 10 p.m. local time, a few hours after Elizabeth II’s children held the so-called Vigil of the Prince around the coffin. Scotland Yard said in a statement that “the man has been arrested for a crime under the Public Order Act and is currently in custody”.

Authorities have not given any further details, although sources quoted by the British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ assure that the detainee climbed the stairs surrounding the catafalque on which the coffin rests and touched it. The chains that broadcast the burning chapel live chose to show general images of the Parliament at the time of the event.
