THE REMAINS OF an American man who was “obsessed” with the British Royal Family were found in St James’s Park – a location that has a view of Buckingham Palace.

His body was thought to have lain in the park for three years, the Telegraph reports today.

An inquest was told that Robert James Moore had a “fixation” with the Queen and the Royal family.

He sent hundreds of packages to the Queen which included offensive items and images.

His body was found by a tree surgeon on 15 March this year on a small piece of land that is only accessible by crossing a lake.

It is 100 yards from the entrance to Buckingham Palace.

No cause of death has been established.
