King Charles Attacked with Eggs During a Ceremony

They say if life gives you lemons, make lemonade with them. But what do you do if it gives you eggs?
Britain's King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, had some not-so-pleasant moments during the royal couple's arrival for a traditional ceremony in York, northern England.
Someone in the crowd who had come to greet the monarch couple threw three eggs at the King and Queen. Fortunately, the "aggressor" was not a very well-trained one, so none of the eggs hit their target.

According to witnesses, the man, quickly arrested by security services, allegedly shouted in the sovereign's direction that Britain was "built on the blood of slavery".

Others in the crowd booed the protester and chanted "God save the King". Other people in the crowd began chanting "God save the King" and "shame on you" at the protester.

King Charles Was Attacked with Eggs

Not one egg touched the royal couple, although the man threw three. The royal couple seemed unimpressed by the incident and continued on their way.

Police officers were quick to pull away a protester shouting slogans.
 "A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of a public order offense following an incident on Micklegate in York. He currently remains in police custody," the police said in an official statement.
This is not the first protest of its kind. A relatively similar incident in 2022, when Queen Elizabeth visited Nottingham in central England, and the royal car was "attacked" with eggs.

In 1995 in Dublin, anti-British protesters threw eggs at Charles during a walk in the city center.
