In reality in Britain you can defend yourself with reasonable force with whatever you have at hand ...

The difference is the UK is that we don't support extrajudicial killings, or lethal force against petty crime. The court assesses reasonableness...

CPS Guidance

Prosecutors should exercise particular care when assessing the reasonableness of the force used in those cases in which the alleged victim was, or believed by the accused to have been, at the material time, engaged in committing a crime. A witness to violent crime with a continuing threat of violence may well be justified in using extreme force to remove a threat of further violence.

To the OP. Nothing happened. Some guy with a Taser, and not terror related. In the UK a Taser is illegal.

... she even had a stranger in her bedroom on one occasion.

That had to be many, many, many years ago.

Yup, 1982 - Michael Fagan climbed through an unlocked roof window, and casually wandered about, munching royal cheese and crackers, even managing to sit on the royal Throne before entering HRH's bedroom!

Hard to believe it was 36 years ago.

Hard to believe he was able to go through unnoticed. Maybe he was sent there for his "Prima Nocta".

Still no more news on this that I've seen, so I guess thankfully it was a nothing-burger after all.

To be fair, there are companies online willing to ship Tasers to the UK for relative pennies, so this isn't overly surprising.

If this individual was arrested for possession of a Taser in some random backstreet of the UK, we probably wouldn't have even heard about it.

I hope all is well. It is really upsetting on behalf of royal guards or responsible people to hear such cases.

A man has been released without charge after he was arrested at Buckingham Palace on suspicion of possessing a firearm. Officers were called to the palace's visitor entrance just before 1pm on Sunday. The man, 38, had already been stopped by security staff.

He was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm (a Taser) and was taken to a central London police station. The man, who was visiting the UK from the Netherlands, was questioned by police before he was released without further action.

In a statement, the Met Police said: "Officers were satisfied that his possession of the device - which was low-powered and part of a keyring - was a genuine error on his part, and that he posed no threat." On its Twitter page, the Metropolitan Police said the incident was not terrorism-related.
