Prosecutor Tom Nicholson told the court that 41-year-old Hennessy walked around the gardens for about 10 minutes toward the palace before being arrested. As he was detained he asked "is Ma'am in?" — the courtesy term used for the queen.

Prosecutors said Hennessy was on parole after being convicted of the murder of a homeless man in 1992.
