A 21-year-old man has been fined after admitting to throwing an egg at King Charles of England during a royal walk last year.

Harry May, from Luton, north London, has been fined £100 and ordered to pay £85 in costs after pleading guilty to a public order offence.

The incident occurred while Charles was in Luton on December 6 to meet community leaders and open a new Sikh temple.

Prosecutor Jason Seetal said the egg landed near Charles while he was chatting with locals.

He said Harry May told police he threw it because “he believed the king visiting a town like Luton, which is a deprived and poor area, was in bad taste”, reports RTE.

“Whatever disagreement you have with somebody, the way to resolve it is not to throw projectiles at them,” chief magistrate Paul Goldspring told May during a hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court, reports RTE.

The magistrate said he accepted May did not attempt to egg the king but said the attack was “planned” and “targeted” at Charles.

The attack came less than a month after multiple eggs were thrown at Charles and his wife Camilla in the northern English city of York in November.

None of the eggs hit Charles and he was carried away by the guards.

Police arrested the alleged attacker, 23-year-old college student Patrick Thelwell.

He was later released on bail on the condition that he not wear eggs in public except when shopping. He will appear in court in York, northern England, next Friday.

Charles became king after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, in September. She was buried after a state funeral and 10 days of national mourning.
