On Wednesday, a man was arrested by UK police after eggs were thrown at King Charles III and Camilla, his wife and queen consort, during an engagement in northern England.

Four eggs flew past the British monarch and his wife as they arrived for a traditional ceremony in York, according to social media footage. They appeared unaffected by the incident and continued with their engagement.

According to Reuters, police officers rushed in to drag away a protester who was shouting slogans. Others in the crowd, however, jeered him and chanted, “God save the king.”

“A 23-year-old man was arrested on a suspicion of a public order offence following an incident on Micklegate in York,” police said in a statement. “He currently remains in police custody.”

Charles is on a two-day tour of northern England after ascending to the throne in September following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth. Later, he unveiled a statue of his late mother in York, which had been planned to commemorate her 70th year as Queen.

“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.

The incident in York was not the first time the royals faced such opposition. When Elizabeth visited 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.
