A car carrying Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was attacked by student protesters as the couple arrived at a performance in central London. The incident occurred on Regent Street in the heart of the city's shopping district. See the amazing cell phone footage of the attack on Charles and Camilla's car below:
On Thursday, as they were leaving Clarence House to see a performance at the London Palladium, Prince Charles and wife Camilla found themselves dead center in a student riot. The royal couple's Rolls Royce was pelted with paint and banged on with the fists of angry students protesting university fee hikes. The rambunctious group chanted "off with their heads" and "Tory scum" as the car managed to drive through the melee. It's unclear if heads will roll among the royal security detail. Some are criticizing them for letting Charles and Camilla get into harm's way in the first place, but Metropolitan Police chief Paul Stephenson claims it's a big success that nobody got shot.
According to The Daily Mail, protesters had already gathered outside Parliament to demonstrate against tuition fee hikes that could triple what British university students pay. The cap on fees will rise from £3,290 a year to £9,000 and most graduates will be asked not to pay something towards their university education, but to pay the entire cost of their university education." The result: protesters set bonfires and scrawled graffiti in Parliament Square, and when they found out that Charles and Camilla were traveling in a Rolls-Royce nearby, they rushed to the scene. Protesters broke a window but Prince Charles and Camilla were not injured. The Daily Mail reports:
This was the terrifying moment that a mob of anarchists attacked Prince Charles and Camilla’s car outside the London Palladium tonight.
The couple were due to attend the Royal Variety Performance, which was taking place very close to the epicentre of a day of violent protest in Parliament Square.
Protesters had thrown paintbombs at police throughout a day of protests and the burgundy 1977 Rolls Royce Phantom VI was hit by an explosion of white paint on Prince Charles’s side of the car. A window was smashed, two rear panels were dented and the aerial was broken.
The best part about this story is the British subjects chanting "off with their heads" as they came to realize it was Prince Charles and Camilla in the car. Now, I hate rioters and vandals like you would not believe but I also hate the British royals so the off with their heads chant did warm my heart, just a little though. LOL... Anyway, students are angry about a major tuition hike but there are a few big difference between peacefully protesting and rioting like crazy animals. The biggest of these differences is that acting like crazy animal don't usually work getting what you want, you dumb mothefuckers. Click on pictures to enlarge:
Here is a news report from UK's SkyNews on the controversial incident:
