King Henry III of England had the windows of Windsor Castle fitted with glass. At this time period to have windows with glass was considered a luxury.

An investigation/inquiry by Coldstream Guard has found that a fake priest posed as The Duke of Sussex's friend bluffed into Victoria Barracks and spent the evening in the officers’ mess. The intruder was allowed into the barracks near Windsor Castle and provided with meals and drinks. Suspicions arouse about his identity when he was entertaining soldiers with "tall tales". The Telegraph has revealed that whilst the soldiers were taken in by his identity, the local pub landlord was not convinced. The owner turn away the intruder who tried to claim a free meal by declaring he was The Duke of Sussex's friend. This pub incident occurred few days before the barrack intrusion, according to the pub owner. George Ghanem, the manager of Maison Meejana, local Lebanese restaurant near Windsor Castle has also encounter the intruder with conversation him.

A fake priest who sparked a security alert at the Coldstream Guards’ Windsor barracks had earlier tried to trick a pub into giving him a free meal by claiming to be an American friend of the Duke of Sussex, The Telegraph can reveal.
The Coldstream Guards has launched two inquiries after the man, who was wearing a vicar’s dog collar, bluffed his way into Victoria Barracks and spent the night, being wined and dined in the officers’ mess.


The incident occurred last week when the man presented himself to the guards on duty at the barracks close to Windsor Castle, claiming to have a meeting with another military chaplain.

He was allowed inside, where he reportedly began regaling soldiers with a series of increasingly tall tales, prompting suspicion about his genuine identity.
Despite this, he was invited to spend the night in the barracks and was provided with a meal and drinks in the officers’ mess.

The following morning, Thames Valley Police were contacted and he was escorted from the base.

However, The Telegraph can reveal that whilst soldiers who guard the Queen were initially taken in by his fake persona, a local pub landlord was not, turning him away when he tried to claim a free meal by saying he was a personal friend of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

In the image there is a three story building right hand side. Curious as to what it was if anyone knows? Barracks?

The building in the centre of the image is the Queen’s Lodge that stood right across what is now the Long Walk. Demolished in 1823.

Bit of a mystery!
