King Charles III didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome on Wednesday when he and Queen Consort Camilla arrived in York, England, for an official visit.

The 73-year-old British monarch was greeting crowds at Micklegate Bar, a royal entrance to the city, when a lone protestor attempted to throw eggs at him, narrowly missing.

The moment was caught on camera and Charles is seen barely acknowledging the eggs, which landed on the ground next to him.

A man was detained by police following the incident, and in the video, crowds are heard booing the protestor.
