The Queen was hit by another security fear after a male and female intruder climbed a fence and broke into her property in Windsor.
The 31-year-old man and his 29-year-old girlfriend were admitted to the Royal Lodge grounds in Windsor Great Park last Sunday.
The lodge is Prince Andrew’s official residence and he was home at the time of the incident, insiders said.
On the premises is the All Saints Chapel, where the 95-year-old Queen, who is still mourning the loss of her husband Prince Philip last month, goes to church.
It is also a place where the monarch rides her horses and walks her corgis.
Both intruders were arrested and taken to Maidenhead Police Station, but have since been released on bail.
It comes just weeks after a 44-year-old woman who claimed to be engaged to the Duke of York was admitted to the Royal Lodge by botched security guards.

In response to last Sunday’s incident, a source told The Sun, “This is an amazing mistake.
“Everyone was on high alert after the first intruder, now this is happening. Heads could roll. ‘
Thames Valley police said officers were called to reports of two intruders from the premises this Sunday. MailOnline reached out to the troop to leave a comment.
On April 19, a 44-year-old woman wandered the Royal Lodge grounds for 20 minutes after leading security forces to believe she was engaged to Prince Andrew.
Officials were so delighted with the Spanish national’s polished looks that they even paid her taxi fare before waving her into the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, The Sun reported.
The woman wandered the Royal Lodge grounds for 20 minutes before going inside the Grade I listed building to ask a staff member where the Duke was.
The police were called and she was held in the lobby after telling the staff member that she was engaged to Prince Andrew. Her name was Irene Windsor and she lived there with the Duke.

In the woman’s handbag were cards of the Royal Lodge and other royal family residences, as well as a self-defense key ring in the shape of a cat with two sharp prongs.
She was originally arrested on suspicion of burglary before being cut off, and a security clearance has now been initiated.
Prince Andrew’s police protection was scaled back last year as part of cost-cutting measures when he retired from royal duties over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
He still has personal protection from the police, but his officers are no longer routinely armed.
The private security at the Royal Lodge, which Andrew shares with his ex-wife Sarah, the Duchess of York, is ensured by the Privy Purse, the Queen’s private income.
The intruder is believed to have flown from Spain to Great Britain on Saturday, the day of Prince Philip’s funeral, three miles away at Windsor Castle.
Although the security forces were on high alert for the funeral, the woman was allowed through the entrance gate to the Royal Lodge, apparently without being asked to produce any proof of identity.
She claimed to have a lunchtime appointment with the Duke and asked security officers to pay her taxi fare.

A source said: “She appeared to be very elegantly dressed, wearing suit pants, a yellow blouse and a peach jacket, and having her hair done and made up.
‘She made a pretty glamorous figure and the guards were completely absorbed by her.
“The woman required them to pay her taxi fare as she was a close friend of Prince Andrew, and they made a commitment before showing her helpful on their way to the Royal Lodge.”
Prince Andrew and Fergie have lived at the Royal Lodge since 2004, two years after the death of their former resident, the Queen Mother.
Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, who had their baby boy in February in August, also lived at the Royal Lodge during the lockdown.
Sources said Prince Andrew was home at the time of the intrusion, but it is not known if he knew at the time.
