Man arrested in attempted break-in at British royal's home

Detention is first after three men drove a car onto the grounds of the Royal Lodge, home of Britain's Prince Andrew, on Monday.

LONDON // A 43-year-old man was arrested on "suspicion of conspiracy to commit theft" after three people broke into the grounds of the home of Britain's Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth's second son, police said. The intruders entered the grounds of Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, west of London, in a car on Monday, but did not get into the building and nothing was taken, a police spokeswoman said. The prince and his daughters, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, were not there at the time. His ex-wife, Sarah, who has remained friendly with the prince and lives in a separate part of Royal Lodge, was also away. Buckingham Palace declined to comment. * Reuters
