Queen Elizabeth latest news – Intruder threatened to ‘assassinate monarch’ in chilling video as suspect is sectioned


A MAN of 19 years of age was held by armed police at Windsor Castle on Christmas Day after he threatened to “assassinate the Queen”.

Suspect Jaswant Singh Chail was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

The video was sent to pals from 19-year-old Chail’s Snapchat account 24 minutes before armed officers pounced on him on Christmas Day morning.

He was 500 metres from the Queen’s private apartments, inside the castle grounds, and was arrested while allegedly armed with a crossbow after scaling a spiked fence with a rope ladder.

He is in a sinister white mask apparently inspired by Star Wars and in his message, he says: “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the Royal Family.”
