A man has pleaded guilty to throwing an egg towards the King while he was on a public walkabout last month.
Harry May, 21, pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday after the incident in Luton in December.
Following the egg throw, the King was temporarily steered away from crowds outside Luton Town Hall by his security staff.
He then resumed shaking hands with members of the public a short while later after being moved to a different area.
The incident came just weeks after 23-year-old Patrick Thelwell was arrested for throwing an egg at the King and Queen Consort during a visit to York.
The royal couple had just arrived in the city on Nov 9 to unveil a statue in honour of the late Queen at York Minster when a figure in the crowd threw four eggs, all of which missed.
As Thelwell was bundled to the ground by police, onlookers chanted “shame on you” and “God save the King”.
