AFP reports that eggs hauled at King Charles III and his wife Queen Consort Camilla failed to hit them during their visit to northern England on Wednesday, British media AFP footage showed.
King Charles who is 73-year-old monarch and Camilla, 75, were targeted with three eggs which landed near them during a walkabout in York, before they were ushered away by minders.
A man was heard shouting “this country was built on the blood of slaves” and “not my king” before he was detained by several police officers as the incident occurred, the footage showed.
The Royal couple continued with the traditional ceremony to officially welcome the sovereign to the city of York by the lord mayor as police detained the suspected perpetrator.
The protester also booed the royal couple before he appeared to lob the eggs at them, according to reporters at the scene.
Other people in the crowd that had gathered at the historic Micklegate Bar location for the visit started chanting “God save the King” and “shame on you” at the protester.
The King and his wife Camila were in the historic city of York to attend the unveiling of a statue of Queen Elizabeth II, the first to be installed since her death on September 8.
