Police have charged a man in connection with the incident where eggs were thrown at the King in York.
Four eggs were thrown in the direction of King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, shortly after they arrived at Micklegate Bar in the city on 9 November.
All the eggs missed. The King was in the city to unveil a statue in honour of the late Queen.
Patrick Thelwell, 23, from York, has today (Monday) been charged with threatening behaviour over the incident, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
North Yorkshire Police said in a statement: “A 23-year-old man from York has been charged with threatening behaviour contrary to Section 4 of the Public Order Act 1986.
“The charge follows an incident in York on 9 November when eggs were thrown during a visit to York by His Majesty King Charles III.
“The man is due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court on 20 January 2023.”
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.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Patrick Thelwell are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”
A statement by the CPS added: “It is extremely important there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.
“The function of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for a criminal court to consider.”
