Egg LAUNCHED at King Charles for the second time in a month during Luton visit
The King was walking around Luton Town centre and meeting members of the public when a man appeared to throw an egg in his direction.
A man in his 20s has been arrested on suspicion of common assault after an egg was allegedly thrown in the direction of the King during a walkabout.
Bedfordshire Police said the suspect was in custody for questioning after being arrested in St George’s Square in Luton on Tuesday.
Charles had been temporarily steered away from the crowds outside Luton Town Hall by his security staff shortly after arriving.
He then resumed shaking hands with members of the public after being moved to a different area.
The incident comes just weeks after 23-year-old Patrick Thelwell was arrested for throwing an egg at the King and Queen Consort during a visit to York.
The royal couple had just arrived in the city on November 9 to unveil a statue in honour of the late Queen at York Minster when a figure in the crowd threw four eggs, all of which missed.
On Tuesday, the King looked relaxed as he met members of the public during his visit to Luton, just a day after the Duke of Sussex spoke of a “dirty game” in a trailer for his new Netflix series.
Charles was all smiles in the Bedfordshire sunshine on Tuesday, chatting to dozens of people at the Town Hall and the newly built Guru Nanak Gurdwara.
