Student protest in London: Rocks and paint against Prince Charles car (watch photo)
London, December 9, 2010
In the middle of protests over increased enrollment in the educational system, Prince Charles’s car was stoned and thrown paint. A window was broken by a stone, but he was not injured.
It happened in Regent Street, London. After the attack, the royal couple is now in Buckingham Palace.
“We can confirm that the car of his Royal Highness was attacked by protesters on their way to an appointment at the London Palladium tonight. Both Royal Highnesses (Charles and Camila) were unharmed,” said Clarence House, official spokesman.
The context of the attack is the fight between police with students, after British lawmakers approved this morning the rise in education tuition, which will raise it to 9,000 pounds (14,000 dollars).
At that time, protesters broke windows of some businesses in the area.
