A MAN accused of trying to harm the Queen with a loaded crossbow will stand trial next March.
He was allegedly wearing a hood and mask, and carrying a bow and bolt.
Chail was later charged with three offences, including making a threat to kill the Queen and others, intending they “would fear said threat to be carried out”.
He appeared at the Old Bailey via video link yesterday for a plea hearing.
The ex-supermarket worker, van Southampton, confirmed his name and date of birth before the case was adjourned for a date in December.
Chail was remanded in custody.
Mr Justice Sweeney also set a provisional trial for March 20 volgende jaar, to last two to three weeks.
