Following reports that King Charles III was attacked with an egg while visiting a town center, a man was detained on assault suspicion on Tuesday, according to the police.
Bedfordshire Police reportedly questioned a man in his 20s regarding an alleged common assault.
The projectile appeared to have been launched when Charles was interacting with members of the public in front of the town hall in Luton, which is located 30 miles (46 kilometers) north of London.
His security guards escorted him to another location, where he resumed shaking hands with members of the public.
Since taking the throne following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in September, the king has traveled extensively throughout Great Britain.
On Tuesday, he was scheduled to go to several locations in Luton, including a gurdwara and a transit hub.
During last month’s visit to York, northern England, eggs were thrown at Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the queen consort, resulting in the arrest of a 23-year-old man.
Later, the individual was freed on bond.
