Whilst The Queen was on a tour of New Zealand in 1981, she was the target of an assassination attempt by Christopher Lewis, age 17. He fired a shot at her, but the rifle wasn't a high enough power and his vantage point wasn't suitable.

This has been revealed after declassified documents being released. The whole story was covered up at the time.

Wow.

That's the official story, of course.

I prefer to think Alucard intervened...



Seriously though, it was a pretty close call. Thanks for sharing!

I heard she shape-shifted at the moment of the attack to a potato, that's how she survived.

If someone makes an attempt on your life, then maybe we can come back and have a laugh.

Given the pope and a good few US presidents have had attempts it's not that surprising, probably was made quiet to not cause problems at the time as it would of required more security people and that looks obvious.

Didn't another boy in London try something with a pistol? I think it must have been during a parade, because she was riding a horse at the time, and a news reporter commented on her skill in controlling the horse's reaction.
His motive was reported as wanting to become "the most famous teenager in the world."

Didn't someone climb into the Queen's bedroom, also, some time back, and had an unannounced chat with the Queen.

I don't think the Queen has all that secure human protection around her. She's protected by God, not men. Otherwise, she'd be a gonner long ago.
