The last outing of King Charles III caused a stir. The monarch who will be crowned next May 6, 2023 was greeted by a group of protesters against the British monarchy.
Some of the people rejecting the king’s presence carried banners with the message: “Not my king”.
Protests against King Charles in Milton Keynes
Charles, 74, visited Milton Keynes on Thursday, February 16, to celebrate the city’s status that town in southeastern England gained last year. However, it did not go as well as he had hoped.
Among the hundreds of supporters who gathered to watch his arrival at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone were also about 20 members of the Republic group, which is campaigning to make visible its call for Britain to have a popularly elected head of state.
The group with messages against the king mingled with those of others present who shouted “God save the King.”
This is not the first time Charles has faced such incidents during some of his tours. Last December he was greeted with eggs while on an official visit to York.
