A 23-year-old man on Wednesday was arrested by the police for throwing eggs at King Charles and Queen Consort, Camilla, during a walkabout in York. He was arrested under the charge of disturbing public order.

The accused, a University of York student, was heard shouting, “this country was built on the blood of slaves,” and “not my king”, while throwing the eggs as the king and consort were being welcomed by city leaders.

However, the eggs missed the king as he ignored the man while being escorted out of the site.

The university said it was “appalled” by the images and would be reviewing the incident in line with its misconduct procedures, reported the BBC.

On the other hand, people in the crowd started pronouncing “God save the king”, while others bellowed “shame on you” at the protester.

Meanwhile, the accused remains in police custody.

King Charles III was formally proclaimed the King of Britain in the first televised Accession Council on September 10 at St James’s Palace in London following the demise of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II – Britain’s longest-serving monarch.
