This is the moment the man who allegedly threw eggs at the King left court today (Friday).
Patrick Thelwell was charged at York Magistrates’ Court with threatening behaviour. He pleaded not guilty.
Four eggs were thrown at King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, on 9 November when they arrived at Micklegate Bar on 9 November, as part of a visit to unveil a new statue of the Queen at York Minster.
Thelwell was given unconditional bail before a full trial in April.
A small group of representatives from the media were gathered outside the court for his appearance.
As he left court, the 23-year-old blew kisses to those gathered outside, saying ‘Peace and love’.
The court heard his defence at trial would include whether his actions “were part of legitimate protest”.
