Prince Charles and his consort, the Duchess of Cornwall were attacked by a mob protesting tuition hikes screaming “Off With Their Heads” and “Tory Scum” on Thursday as seen in this extraordinary video. One protester reported was able to poke Camilla with a stick through a window left open by security.
It was an unthinkable security breach even in England where leaders are more assessable to average citizens.
Up to 20 protesters set on the car. Some kicked and rocked the car while others hit it with paint bombs.
Ironically, on that day in 1688, King James II’s wife and son fled England for France during the “Glorious Revolution.” King James himself joined them later. The Royal couple, however, broke tradition and simply went home.
