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

... 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.
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.
