EXCLUSIVE: Student banned from carrying eggs in public and must stay 500m away from King Charles

The student suspected of throwing eggs at the king says he was set upon by the crowd and has since received death threats.

Patrick Thelwell, 23, was arrested after eggs were thrown at the King and Queen Consort in York on Wednesday.

All of the eggs missed, before the King and Queen Consort were ushered away.

North Yorkshire Police have tweeted this morning: “Here is an update following an arrest during yesterday’s Royal Visit

“Yesterday, we arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of a public order offence during the Royal visit.

“The man has been interviewed and released on police bail.

“He was detained following an incident which occurred as King Charles III and the Queen Consort arrived at Micklegate Bar in York yesterday. “

Speaking to The Mirror after being released from custody, the University of York student said he was attacked by the crowd.

“I was let out at 10pm so it wasn’t that bad really. My friends were waiting for me. My solicitor was very good,” he said.

“After I was arrested the experience of that crowd, literally screaming and wailing with pure rage. Saying that my head should be on a spike, that I should be murdered on the spot.

“It doesn’t phase me because I understand what fascism is, what it looks like.

“People were ripping chunks of my hair out, they were spitting at me. People lost their minds.”

“It’s just so revealing to see when you challenge someone’s beliefs in that way, the belief of the superiority of this man’s blood.”

When asked why the King, who arguably has been trying to raise awareness about climate change for decades, he said: “If that is what we take as someone who has done the most for climate change it shows you how low the bar is!

“This is a man who dresses in stolen jewels from India and Africa and every other colony.”

Patrick said his bail conditions had been quite “amusing”.

He said they include not being allowed to be 500 metres within the King and not being allowed to possess any eggs in a public place.

Although he says they had to alter that condition so he could go grocery shopping.

He said he has been charged with Section 4 public order offence and due in court on December 1st.

He said he was on the way home to change his passwords after getting sinister messages.

“I’ve had death threats, people on DM, instagram, saying: “If I’m not careful I’m going to get my head cut off’,” he said.

“People (the public) were kicking me. Of course they were. I challenged the very core of their identity.”

Asked why he tried to pelt the King with eggs, he said: “I did what I did because I don’t believe in kings. I believe in the equality of all people.

“It’s a protest against the state of this country and the descent into fascism.

“We have a Government that are enacting fascist policies particularly by their treatment of refugees. The media whipping up hatred. Not the Mirror.

“Look at the rhetoric just days after a far-right extremist firebombed a refugee centre. Then you have the Government talking about an invasion.

“I don’t believe in borders. I don’t believe in nation states. I believe in people.

“I believe in democracy and solidarity with all the world’s people who are suffering right now in large part because of conditions created by the British state.

“The United Kingdom as a whole, needs to be abolished, dissolved and its assets given as reparations to help the world and build resilience to the climate breakout that we have caused.

“It’s time for the people of the world to unite and have the revolution that we desperately need to survive.”

Patrick said he has spoken to his mum, a teacher, since his release and he said she was “concerned” about him but okay with him.

He said: “It’s not our first rodeo”.
