King Charles III is pelted by an egg again, man arrested

King Charles III had quite an egg-citing morning.

Yet another egg was hurled toward the king during a walkabout in Luton, England, on Tuesday.

A man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of assault after being detained in St. George’s Square, Bedfordshire Police said.

The 74-year-old monarch was steered away from the large crowds by his security. 

Charles didn’t crack after the egg incident and he kept his sunny disposition as he shook hands with the public after being moved to a different location.

Since the passing of his mother Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles has been traveling across Britain to make public appearances. He is set to visit several locations in Luton, including a transit station and a Sikh house of worship — a gurdwara.

But this isn’t the first time someone has thrown eggs at King Charles.

When Charles and Queen Consort Camilla arrived in York in November for an official visit, a protester lobbed several eggs at him, barely missing.

The protestor — revealed as Extinction Rebellion activist and former Green Party candidate Patrick Thelwell — was heard shouting, “This country was built on the blood of slaves!”

Thelwell, 23, has now reportedly been banned from carrying eggs in public.
