Police have issued an update on their investigations into the incident where eggs were thrown at the King during his visit to York.
Officers detained a man who was standing behind the crash barriers on the station side of the street outside Micklegate Bar immediately after three eggs were launched at Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort.
The suspect was bound by the hands and feet and carried by police into a waiting van where he was taken into custody.
Today (Thursday), a North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Here is an update following an arrest during yesterday’s royal visit.
“Yesterday, we arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of a public order offence during the royal visit.
“The man has been interviewed and released on police bail.
“He was detained following an incident which occurred as King Charles III and the Queen Consort arrived at Micklegate Bar in York yesterday.”
None of the eggs hit anyone. One landed at the feet of the King, who calmly carried on with the visit.
