The Stalker who Stole Queen Victoria’s Underwear

He caused a right royal fuss by breaking into Buckingham Palace, sitting on the throne, sleeping in a servant?s bed and even stealing Queen Victoria?s knickers.

But brazen Edward Jones has earned a place in the history books ? as the world?s first celebrity stalker. Even by the standards of modern celebrity culture, the 14-year-old went to astonishing lengths to get close to the object of his admiration by breaking into the palace.

Edward Jones, or?the boy Jones, as he was called by the British newspapers of the early?Victorian era, was a notorious intruder into?Buckingham Palace?between 1838 and 1841.? In 1838, aged 14, he entered Buckingham Palace, disguised as a?sweep.

Now that’s classy

The Queen Mother was always all class.

The latest revelation that she prepared for an invasion of the filthy Hun by practising shooting rats is just awesome however.

The late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, was so frightened of being kidnapped by Nazi parachutists that she learned to shoot by practising on rats flushed out of Buckingham Palace.
