Man Detained By UK Police For Throwing Eggs At King Charles III.
A man has been detained by the British police for allegedly throwing eggs at King Charles III and Camilla, the queen consort, as they walked in the northern England city of York.
According to video footage, several eggs were seen in motion and smashed on the ground; none appeared to hit the royal couple.
Washington Post reports that the incident happened as the monarch and his wife were entering York through Micklegate Bar, a medieval gateway where monarchs are traditionally welcomed to the city.
Britain’s PA news agency reported that the man shouted “this country was built on the blood of slaves” as several police officers could be seen grappling with the man at a crowd barrier as he was being detained.
Meanwhile, Charles and Camilla also are due to visit the city’s cathedral, York Minster, and unveil a statue of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September.
SaharaReporters had in September also reported that an Oxford history lecturer was detained and transported to a police van during the proclamation of King Charles III for yelling “who elected him?”
Symon Hill, 45, who described his ordeal to Oxford Mail, had expressed concern over the British people being forced to accept a Head of State without a democratic election.
Hill said he came across the procession on his way from church, and while bystanders urged him to keep quiet, he responded: “A head of state has been imposed on us without our consent.”
“Two people near me turned to me and told me to shut up, which they have every right to do, and I told them I didn’t think a head of state should be imposed on us,” Hill said.
“I feel very surprised and very shaken, and I feel like my free speech and my dignity as a person has been attacked simply because I expressed an opinion,” he added.
The British constitutional monarchy, according to Hill’s protest, will be out of style in 2022, along with other anti-monarchy demonstrators in the UK.
A 22-year-old woman, with a protest sign, was also arrested outside St Giles’ Cathedral, where the Queen’s coffin was due to be held.
Shortly after she held out her sign, police officers appeared behind her and took her away, prompting the crowd to applaud.
While a man in the crowd shouted “Let her go, it’s free speech,” others in the crowd said the lady ought to have some respect for the departed queen
