The Remembrance Day of the UK was observed on Sunday and it also witnessed the first service led by King Charles as the new monarch following the demise of Queen Elizabeth. Talking about the King, he appeared to hold back his tears during his first Remembrance Sunday service as everyone honored those who sacrificed their lives by laying a wreath at the Cenotaph.

Remembrance Day details

King Charles had earlier performed the role on behalf of the Queen as the Prince of Wales but this Remembrance Day marked the first time that he stood before the Cenotaph as the head of state. Everyone also witnessed a teary-eyed Princess of Wales and Queen Consort Camilla as they watched the emotional Remembrance Sunday service today together. Prince William was also present and placed the wreath that was previously laid by his father, who held the title of the Prince of Wales for more than 64 years.

King Charles and his Queen Consort Camilla recently visited York for one of their royal visits but instead met with an unsavory incident. According to the latest reports, eggs were thrown at the royal couple this Wednesday during their walkabout at the place. While the duo narrowly escaped the attack, the protestor responsible for it was detailed by the police officials, states the latest reports.

The incident

Talking about the incident, its videos also made it to social media and King Charles appeared to remain unperturbed as several eggs were thrown a few inches away from the royal couple while they were greeting the audience in York. Talking about the couple, they were at the Micklegate Bar which is a historic gateway in the city where the monarch is traditionally supposed to enter. However, the couple, as mentioned earlier, was taken aback by the sudden egg attack.

There was one protestor among others who reportedly called out the royal couple by saying, “This country was built on the blood of slaves.” He was among the many others responsible for throwing eggs at the monarch and his Queen Consort. Four police officers detained him, according to the Northern Echo.
