The face-tattooed Connor Atreus walked through the car gate of the Royal Muse on Sunday night as it was opened for an approved vehicle. He was able to cross the palace boundary after refusing to stop when challenged by a member of the house staff.

“I want to come in. I want to see the queen,” said Mr. Atreus before leaving the gate to be arrested.

According to media outlets, the 28-year-old, whose face tattoo reads “Really Blessed,” appeared in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, May 29, on charges of trespassing.

Connor Atreus has been arrested amid tight security around Buckingham Palace in the run-up to an extended bank holiday to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign. During the court hearing, prosecutor Leela Nahabu-Osman said, “This is one of the most high-profile weeks in history, this is the 70th anniversary.” Ms Leila said the area where the accused was accused of intrusion was “one of the toughest safe havens in London.”

Defendant’s attorney Daniel Mulin, on the other hand, told the court that his client was suffering from mental health problems. Mr Mullen said the 28-year-old had not used “silence” and “had no intention or desire to go further.” “It was the worst reckless and at best an accidental crime,” he said.

Such as Daily Star, Judge Nina Tempia has adjourned the case to the Crown Prosecution Service until June 28 to seek the consent of Attorney General Suela Braverman, which is required in cases involving trespassing on a protected site. Judge Tampia granted Mr Atreus conditional bail, including a curfew monitored by electronic tag and expulsion from London without a court appearance.
