A man was detained after appearing to throw eggs at King Charles III and Camilla the queen consort as they walked in the Northern England City of York.

The incident happened as the monarch and his wife were entering york through Micklegate Bar a medieval gateway where monarchs are traditionally welcomed to the city.

Video footage showed several eggs in motion and smashed on the ground. None appeared to hit the royal couple. Several police officers could be seen grappling with a man at a crowd barrier Britain's PA News Agency reported that he shouted "this country was built on the blood of slaves" as he was being detained.
