The protester was seen smiling and protruding his tongue whereas two officers carried him away and the group chanted “Disgrace on you” and “God save the king.”

Apart from avoiding being pelted by breakfast, King Charles seems to be settling in his new function fairly properly. As does his spouse of 16 years, whom Queen Elizabeth wished would take the title of “Queen Consort” when Charles turned King in an announcement solely months earlier than her passing. The transfer was welcomed by the Royal household as there had been options Camilla would possibly use the title of “Princess Consort” as a consequence of remaining public tensions over the tragic 1997 demise of Charle’s first spouse Princess Diana.
