Buckingham Palace appeared to suffer some minor damage during the massive St. Jude megastorm that slammed southern England on Sunday night and Monday morning.

The palace was damaged due to the high winds spawned by the storm, according to the Express publication.

Several plates were torn off the Buckingham Palace roof.

Two windows were cracked and debris was blown from trees located on palace property, said a spokesperson with the palace.

It is unclear if any other damage was done to the palace, which is the official London residence of Queen Elizabeth II.

According to The Associated Press, at least four people were killed in the U.K. due to the storm.

More than 270,000 people lost power.
