London (Daily Pakistan Online) A 21-year-old man who admitted to throwing an egg at King Charles Swim of Great Britain was fined. Harry May, 21, of Luton, north London, was fined £100 ($122) and ordered to pay £85 costs after pleading guilty to a public order offence.
According to news agency AFP, the egg-throwing incident happened when 74-year-old King Charles was in Luton on December 6 to meet community leaders and open a new Sikh temple. Prosecutor Jason Settle said the egg thrown by May landed near Charles while he was talking to locals. May told police she threw the egg because ‘she thought it was inappropriate for the King to visit a poor and deprived town like Luton.’
Chief Magistrate Paul Goldspring told May during a hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court that ‘whatever you have a dispute with someone, the way to resolve it is not to throw missiles at them.’
The attack came less than a month after several eggs were thrown at Charles and his wife Camilla in York, northern England, in November, none of which hit Charles. Police have identified the alleged attacker. Patrick Thelwell, a 23-year-old university student, was taken into custody. He was later released on bail on the condition that he not carry eggs in public except for shopping. Thelville will appear in court next Friday in York in northern England.
The way King Charles did not even break a sweat over that man throwing egg is the prize for me.????????The Royal family is made of stronger stuff than politicians, thats for sure. There will always be one ????, So ????
