A man has been charged after reports that eggs were thrown at the King and Queen Consort while they were in York.

Following the November incident, Patrick Thelwell, a 23-year-old University of York student, will be charged with a public order offence and will appear in York Magistrates’ Court on January 20.

A person in the crowd appeared to throw four eggs as the royal couple arrived at York Minster to officially unveil a statue honouring the late Queen.

The eggs were all missed.

The incident occurred on the second day of a formal royal visit to Yorkshire, when the King and Camilla later travelled to Doncaster.

The eggs flew toward him, and the King continued shaking hands with a member of the public, pausing only to look at the cracked shells on the ground.

Security quickly led Camilla and him away after that.

Then, while lying on the ground behind temporary fencing erected for the royal visit, a man was seen being restrained by police officers.

The crowd began to chant “God save the King” and “shame on you” after the eggs were thrown.

when announcing the charges in Mr. Thelwell’s case, Nick Price, head of the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, said

“The CPS has authorised North Yorkshire police to charge Patrick Thelwell with threatening behaviour contrary to Section 4 of the Public Order Act 1986.

“This follows an investigation by police into an incident in which eggs were thrown at HM The King in York on November 9, 2022.”
