After eggs were hurled at the King while in York, a man was detained.

A man has been detained by police for allegedly throwing eggs at the King and Queen Consort.

Charles and Camilla were being welcomed to York by city leaders when a protester threw four eggs at them.

All missed before the pair were ushered away.

The man was heard shouting “this country was built on the blood of slaves” as he was being detained by around four police officers.

People in the crowd started chanting “God save the King” and “shame on you” at the protester.

The suspect was later carried away in handcuffs, with his legs bound by two uniformed officers, who put him in the back of a police van.

Charles and Camilla were visiting Yorkshire to carry out a number of engagements.
