King Charles III: York student denies egg throwing charge

A student has pleaded not guilty to a public order offence after eggs were allegedly thrown at the King in York.

Patrick Thelwell, 23, appeared at York Magistrates’ Court on Friday to deny threatening behaviour contrary to Section 4 of the Public Order Act 1986.

The incident is said to have taken place when The King and Queen Consort were visiting the city on 9 November last year.

Mr Thelwell is due to stand trial on 14 April at York Crown Court.

The incident took place on the second day of the monarch’s official tour of Yorkshire as the royal couple were greeting people at Micklegate Bar. 

None of the eggs hit the King or Queen Consort who were both promptly ushered away by security before continuing their visit, with the King unveiling a statue of Queen Elizabeth II at York Minster.
