    09 July 2012 will mark the 30th anniversary of Michael Fagan's ridiculously, wonderfully bold break-in at Buckingham Palace and his late-night encounter with HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

    Michael Fagan: 'Her nightie was one of those Liberty prints, down to her knees' (Independent on Sunday)
    What exactly took place that night in the royal bedchamber?
    What constituted initial Palace attempts to counter this major security breach?
    How does Fagan account for his - not one, but two - Buckingham Palace break-ins?
    The rest of this highly readable, funny, sad article, with details about the first break-in also, at link above

    Parlaying it all into negligible success: 1983 version of "God Save the Queen" Fagan recorded with the Bollock Brothers:

    That is classic. I especially enjoy the "Bollock Brothers".

    There is so much I'd like to ask that guy. I don't care about her nightie. Did she sleep with a hot water bottle? Does she take a midnight snack? Was she having merely a kip or a full on sleep?

    He was "scarderer" than the Queen.

    Thankfully both are alive and well. That is crazy though. Lesson learned "Don't be mesing with 'shrooms".

    Moderation in all things. Particularly with 'shrooms in the soup.

    I must have blocked this from my mind lol. Love the detail of the Royal Madge's nightie and little bare feet.
    I had some shrooms once, all I did was laugh all night :D

    This is the sort of story some of us cite when we say, happily, "There'll always be an England."
