A MAN named Jaswant Singh Chail has been charged with treason after allegedly storming into Windsor castle on Christmas Day.

Met Police have revealed Jaswant Singh Chail, 20, has been charged with intending to injure or alarm the Queen.

Its understood her Majesty was inside with other royals before her tribute to late hubby Philip was broadcast to the nation in her emotional Christmas Day message.

It was her first Christmas without Philip – her husband of 73 years who died aged 99 in April.

Nick Price, Head of the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, said: “The CPS has authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Jaswat Singh Chail with offences after he was arrested in the grounds of Windsor Castle on 25 December 2021 carrying a crossbow.

“This decision has been made following an investigation carried out by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

“Mr Chail, 20, has been charged with making threats to kill, possession of an offensive weapon, and an offence under the 1842 Treason Act.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Chail are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”

He will next appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 17 August.

Under the 1842 Treason Act, it is an offence to assault the Queen, or have a firearm or offensive weapon in her presence with intent to injure or alarm her or to cause a breach of peace.

In 1981, Marcus Sarjeant was handed a prison sentence under this section of the Treason Act after he fired blank shots at the Queen while she was riding down The Mall in London during the Trooping the Colour parade in 1981.

He was jailed for five years after pleading guilty.

The last person to be convicted under the separate and more serious 1351 Treason Act was William Joyce, also known as Lord Haw-Haw, who collaborated with Germany during the Second World War.
