The man who broke into Windsor Castle on Christmas 2021 armed with a crossbow wanted to kill Queen Elizabeth, as he revealed to the police who arrested him.
“I’m here to kill Queen Elizabeth,” said 20-year-old Jaswand Singh Chail, who was arrested armed with a crossbow at Windsor Castle on Christmas Day and charged under Britain’s Treason Act.
At the time of the trial, a police officer who was present at the incident said that the accused was wearing a hood and mask and “looked like a superhero from a movie”.
At the time of the incident, Queen Elizabeth was at the castle with her son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, his wife, Camilla, and other close family members.
Following an investigation by the counter-terrorism agency, Childe was charged with threats to kill, possession of an offensive weapon and an offense under section 2 of the Treason Act 1842.
This section details the punishment for someone who “fires or aims a firearm, or discharges or uses an offensive material or weapon, with intent to injure or frighten Her Majesty”.
During a hearing at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Childe, who hails from Southampton in southern England, said he wanted revenge on the establishment.
