An egg was thrown at King Charles again today, according to police – who arrested a man in his 20s on suspicion of common assault.
The monarch is believed to have been targeted during a walkabout on St George’s Square in Luton.
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.
It comes less than a month after Charles, 74, was pelted with four eggs in York by a man shouting ‘this country was built on the blood of slaves’.
The protester was later identified as Patrick Thelwell, a 23-year-old Extinction Rebellion activist who once stood as a Green Party candidate.
