A MAN has been charged with trespassing at Buckingham Palace, while carrying a knife and Class A drugs.

Cameron Kalani, from Haywards Heath, is accused of entering The Royal Mews - a collection of equestrian stables belonging to the Royal Family - on May 10 this year.

The 44-year-old is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday, November 19, to face charges of trespassing on a protected site.

He is also charged with possession of a bladed article and possession of a wrap of cocaine.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman declined to comment.

It comes after two people were arrested on suspicion of being found in or upon enclosed premises in a separate incident near Windsor Castle earlier this year.

Thames Valley Police arrested a 29-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from London, after a report that two trespassers had been in the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Great Park in Berkshire on April 25.

Both were released under investigation.
