An intruder was fugitive at Buckingham Palace at 2 am this morning while the queen slept a few meters away.
The Sun may reveal that the 22-year-old man managed to climb a fence at the front of the building to get into the 93-year-old monarch's house where he could try to knock on the doors of the residence.
Sources claim that it took police on the scene about four minutes to apprehend it, while she was trying to determine if he was also armed – causing panic within the palace about the massive violation of security.

It is feared that this man was attempting a copy operation with Michael Fagan, who was able to enter the Queen's chamber almost 37 years ago.
Our royal insider revealed, "There was an intruder in the palace while the queen was sleeping in her room and he was on the run for a few good minutes before the cops stopped him.
"He was determined to go inside the palace and hit hard but, thank God, this time everything was locked."
"HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?"
The flag of the royal banner floated to the palace, suggesting to the intruder to know that the queen was at home and perhaps trying to access her room.
The royal source added, "This intruder entered the palace nearly 37 years after the day Michael Fagan finally entered the Queen's bed. There is a real theory and a real fear that he could have started a copy operation.
"The police eventually arrested him under the Mental Health Act, but she must seriously question how he set up and about the time that's going on." it took him to free himself.
"How is it possible, all these years later, that someone can climb the fence and enter the enclosure directly without being stopped immediately? What about heat censors and CCTV? The safety of the queen should be paramount. "
QUEEN IN TIME
Last night, initiates of the Buckingham Palace revealed that the queen should be informed of the incident.
A palace source explained, "Of course, this will be of great interest to the Queen. She knows exactly what's going on in the palace.
The Sun understands that the queen was the only royal superior sleeping at the palace because of ongoing renovations. We do not believe the Duke of Edinburgh was there.
Another source added: "Everyone knows that the queen was present because the Royal Standard was flying.
"We are all relieved that the doors are locked this time and that he could not get inside the Queen."
CHAIN OF PALAIS INVASIONS
The intrusion bears a devastating blow to the palace security operation, which has been affected by a number of similar incidents.
The most famous was at 7:15 am on July 9, 1982, when Fagan, an unemployed worker, climbed the walls and entered the Queen's room.
As the 31 year old schizophrenic started talking to her monarch about her family problems, she pushed the panic button near her bed but got no answer.
She then telephoned the switchboard but the operator thought it was another staff member playing a joke and replied, "Yes, darling, you the queen, we will send someone in place! "
Fagan broke a large glass ashtray and threatened to cut his wrists while sitting at the end of the queen's bed.
It's the Queen's long-time assistant, Paul Whybrew – still employed by the Queen so far – who came to the rescue.

He came back with the corgis and, when the queen called him, he saw Fagan and started talking to him. Paul offered him a drink, and then, when his guard had fallen, he mistreated him outside, where a cleaning lady looked for a policeman.
