PENSIONER Winifred Bucknall is today battling for compensation after a horrific fall at Buckingham Palace – even though the Queen's staff allegedly told her she was not entitled to make a claim.

Mrs Bucknall, who is in her 80s, suffered severe bruising on the side of her face and could not cry because the pain was unbearable.

Palace officials allegedly told Mrs Bucknall, who spent three weeks in hospital, she could not claim against the palace because all royal premises were exempt from liability.

However, The Evening Star today brought a smile to the face of Mrs Bucknall, who lives in Old Felixstowe, when we told her WAS entitled to claim compensation for her injuries.
