LONDON – Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May confirmed on Sunday that rioters who surrounded Prince Charles’ car during violent student protests made physical contact with his wife Camilla.
A mob of demonstrators who joined in Thursday’s protest against the hike in university tuition fees surrounded the car carrying the heir to the throne and the Duchess of Cornwall as they drove to a charity gala event.
A window on the Prince of Wales’ side of the car was smashed, while the back of the car was spattered with paint hurled at it. The vehicle was also kicked.
May said she had been in touch with the royal household about the incident.
