Prince Charles joked about student protests before Royal couple attacked
The Prince was attending a reception in Clarence House immediately before the journey to the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium when he referred to the tens of thousands of students causing havoc.
He said: “Hopefully we’ll be able to brave our way through, get there and be all right.”
The Rolls-Royce Phantom VI was stopped by crowds of protesters on Regent Street and hit with a hail of missiles, including bottles and dustbins, as well as a tin of white paint, and a window was badly cracked before the Royal couple could escape.
