Queen gets shut out of Windsor Castle in awkward security gaffe


THE Queen was locked out of her home at Windsor Castle in an embarrassing security blunder.

Her Majesty was not amused as she was pictured stuck outside with her close protection officers.

The Queen was embarrassedly locked out of her home as she went driving a Range Rover on the estate but the gates would not open

The 93-year-old monarch was driving a Range Rover onto the estate on Thursday.

But when she reached Nelson’s Gate entrance to Windsor Castle, the gates would not open.

A frustrated protection officer appeared to kick a side door in desperation before escorting the Queen around the block until the gate was unlocked.

An onlooker said: “It’s hugely embarrassing.”

“There should have been a guard opening the gates automatically when the Queen came round the corner.”

“Someone either forgot to open them and there was no gatekeeper.”

No entry…Queen’s drive is blocked
Turning away…monarch goes for spin
Home at last… the gate is finally opened

“They waited then went for a spin until they finally opened and did a u-turn.”

Earlier this week, The Queen was said to be ‘very sad’ by the news Meghan Markle may not bring baby Archie to the UK with her during their visit.

Although baby Archie has not joined the couple, a beaming Meghan Markle said it was “very nice to be back” after returning to Britain for the first time since Megxit.
