A 21-year-old man appeared in a London court this morning to plead guilty to a charge under the Treason Act of intending to harm Queen Elizabeth.

Jaswad Singh Chail from Hampshire had managed to break into Windsor Castle on Christmas Day 2021 carrying a crossbow which he had already armed with an arrow and had unlocked.

He had even gone so far as to have visual contact with the private apartments of the then queen, before he was arrested.

He had entered the castle grounds using a spiral staircase and had already been there for two hours before he was spotted and arrested at 8.10am.

To the police who arrested him he had said “I am here to kill the queen”.

The royal guard policeman who first spotted him, calmly asking him ‘good morning, can I help you mate?’ described how it was like watching a scene from a movie, with Child wearing a mask and hood.

A handwritten note was found on him asking not to be stripped of his clothes, not to be autopsied and not to be embalmed, adding “thank you and sorry”.

He also apologized earlier in a video he posted on Snapchat revealing that he would attempt to assassinate the Queen as “revenge for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh Massacre” in Amritsar, India, when colonial British soldiers opened fire on thousands of gathered dead. .

The anti-terrorist service had also participated in the investigation.

Childe also pleaded guilty to two more counts, possession of a weapon and intent to kill.

He becomes the first person to be found guilty of treason in the UK since 1981.

Christmas 2021 was Queen Elizabeth’s last and she spent it in Windsor in relative isolation due to the pandemic.
