Egg Thrown At King Charles For Second Time In A Month

New Delhi: A man was arrested in Luton, United Kingdom after an egg was allegedly thrown in the direction of King Charles III. The incident took place on Tuesday while King Charles was on a walkabout in Luton, The Guardian said, crediting Bedfordshire Police.

Bedfordshire Police further said the suspect was being held in custody for questioning after he was arrested in St George’s Square.

King Charles’ security team temporarily directed the man away from the crowd outside Luton Town Hall. He was then transported to another area and the King started shaking hands with the crowd again. He was in Luton to ride the new cable-drawn Dart mass passenger transit system. During his visit to Bedfordshire town, the monarch also visited the Guru Nanak Gurdwara and the town hall.

A few weeks back, eggs were hurled at King Charles and Camilla, his wife and the Queen Consort, while they attended an engagement in northern England and a 23-year-old man was held by the police after the incident. Footage on social media showed four eggs flying past the British monarch and his wife and smashing on the ground as they arrived for a traditional ceremony in York.
