According to the BBC, Canto pleaded guilty to three counts of theft that occurred shockingly recently—between November 11, 2019, and August 7, 2020, to be exact.

Canto had his own quarters at the Royal Mews in Buckingham Palace, where police reportedly found a “significant quantity” of stolen items worth between £10,000 and £100,000—including a photo album of Donald Trump’s visit to the UK (which for some inexplicable reason is worth £1,500), and signed photos of Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. In addition to the photos, Canto appears to have stolen multiple fancy medals.

Prosecutor Simon Maughan said a large number of the stolen items were listed on eBay, and Canto made £7,741 by selling them for “well under” their actual value. Apparently, Canto was able to steal said items due to the fact that he took on cleaning duties during the Covid-19 pandemic, which allowed him to access offices, staff lockers, and the Duke of York’s storeroom.

Canto was released on bail and faces time in jail pending his sentencing at Southwark Crown Court.
