A Man Arrested After Throwing Eggs on King Charles

Yesterday, a man was apprehended by police after throwing eggs at Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, as they toured a building in the north of England.

Footage on social media showed four eggs flying past the British monarch and his wife and smashing on the ground as they arrived for a traditional ceremony in York. They appeared to be unmoved by the incident and carried on with the engagement.

The police dragged away a protester shouting slogans. The crowd jeered him, and chanted, “God saves the king”.

The young man was held for public order offenses following a series of disorderly incidents that took place on the outskirts of York, authorities noted in an official statement. He is being kept in police custody for the time being.

As heir to the throne and king since the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, he travelled around Northern England for two days. Earlier this day, he unveiled a monument to his late mother at a ceremony planned in celebration of her seventieth anniversary as monarch.

“Now, as we have witnessed, with great sadness, the passing of that reign, it is unveiled in her memory, as a tribute to a life of extraordinary service and devotion,” he said.

It is not the first time, the royal family witnessed this. During Elizabeth’s visit to Nottingham, central England in 2022, eggs were thrown at her royal car, and anti-British protesters threw eggs at Charles during a walkabout in central Dublin in 1995.
