A 37-year-old man has been charged with trespass after allegedly climbing over a fence to break in to Buckingham Palace.
Unemployed Victor Miller, from east London, was arrested at the royal site shortly before midnight on September 2 last year, in an area which is normally open to the public during the day in the summer.
He will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on March 4, accused of trespass on a protected site.
Scotland Yard said no members of the British royal family were present when he was arrested.
A second man was also held outside the palace, but was later told that no action would be taken against him.
