At the time of the intruder’s entrance onto the grounds, the queen, 95, had been celebrating Christmas with her son, Prince Charles, and his family.

Mears said the Royal Family had been made aware of the incident, Reuters reported. A representative for the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Reuters reported that there is no indication the family’s Christmas or holiday plans had been disrupted by the intruder.

The queen began to spend Christmas at Windsor Castle due to the coronavirus pandemic. Normally, she spends it at her Sandringham estate in eastern England, according to Reuters.
