A man who was caught carrying a loaded crossbow at late Queen Elizabeth’s Windsor Castle home has pleaded guilty to threatening to kill the monarch and to an offence under the Treason Act.
21-year-old Jaswant Singh Chail from southern England said, "I am here to kill the queen," when he was arrested.
He was found dressed in black clothing and wearing a hood, metal mask and gloves in the grounds of the castle to the west of London at about 8 a.m. on Christmas Day in 2021.
Britain's Queen Elizabeth, who died last September, was at the castle on the day of the incident, along with her son and now King Charles and other close family members.
Prosecutors said that Chail had spent months planning the attack.
