A man carrying a knife tried to muscle his way into Buckingham Palace today but was stopped by police and arrested. He tried to get in through the everyday entrance to the right of the ceremonial central gates, the Daily Beast reports. The 44-year-old is now being held at a London police station, the Guardian notes. No one was hurt in the attempt, and the queen wasn't home. Just last month, another man was arrested after reportedly climbing over a fence to get in the palace, the BBC notes. (Read more Buckingham Palace stories.)
