One man was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage, police said.
The man was found inside the palace in an area open to the public during the day, police said. The second man was arrested for alleged conspiracy to commit burglary.

    The most important issue to me is that the people of Great Britain, and of all the world, should have so much respect for British royalty that robbing Buckingham Palace would be inconceivable.

    Great Britain yes, but including people of all the world is rather stretching it @JI-F.
    Attempts have been made occasionally to break into B.Palace. No big deal.
