Man fined for throwing eggs at King Charles III of Luton

A man who threw an egg at King Charles III on a walk plead­ed guilty and was fined.

Har­ry May, 21, was charged with pub­lic order and morals dur­ing a roy­al vis­it to Luton on Decem­ber 6.

The West­min­ster Mag­is­trates Court has heard that May, of More­ton Road South, Luton, thought the monar­ch’s vis­it to the “poor neigh­bor­hoods” was in “bad taste”.

The defen­dant (whose full name is Har­ry Spar­ta­cus May) was ordered to pay a fine of £100 and costs of £85.

The King was ini­tial­ly kept from the crowds by his guardians out­side Luton Town Hall, but con­tin­ued to vis­it short­ly thereafter.

Police arrest­ed May after wit­ness­ing her throw a pro­jec­tile that fell to the ground near King while speak­ing to the pub­lic, accord­ing to pros­e­cu­tor Jason Sheetal.

May was charged with using threatening/abusive language/actions that could harass, alarm and cause distress.

When ques­tioned by police, See­tal said May said he did it because he thought it was in bad taste for the king to vis­it a poor neigh­bor­hood like Luton and he want­ed to doc­u­ment it. It says.

Wear­ing glass­es and a navy blue jack­et, May sat on the dock and remained expres­sion­less as the facts were read out in court.

Attor­ney Alex Benn told the court that his client “deeply regrets” his actions and “accepts that he must now face the consequences”.

He was described as “a devot­ed, home­ly man” with a “great love for his country”.

Chief Jus­tice Paul Gold­spring said in a May speech: “If you have a dis­agree­ment with some­one, the way to resolve it is not to throw pro­jec­tiles at them.

Gold­spring denied that he was “very aware” of May’s moth­er’s claim that throw­ing things in the direc­tion of pub­lic fig­ures could inflict “fear” on them, but he regret­ted it. I acknowl­edge that I have expressed my feelings.

He added, “I also admit that you did­n’t mean to egg your Majesty. But you planned to do it and you meant to do it again, oth­er­wise why car­ry two?” is it?

“It does­n’t mat­ter who the tar­get is or why.
