Gypsies at Windsor Castle -- April Fool's Day, 2005
The Sun reported that gypsies had set up camp on the Queen's lawn at Windsor Castle, claiming this as their right under a 650-year-old law.

The Queen was upset, but gypsy leader Ralph Fitteris tried to placate her by suggesting, "We could do her a good deal on tarmac."
