The King held an audience with the President of Nigeria just hours after a protester threw eggs at the monarch and Camilla Queen Consort in York. His Majesty welcomed Muhammadu Buhari to the official royal residence in central London.
Holding the audience in the 1844 Room, the monarch shook hands with the smiling Mr Buhari.
He was also pictured chuckling and gesturing with his hands while holding his hands out wide.
Earlier in York, as the King and the Queen Consort arrived at the city’s Micklegate Bar, a protester began booing before throwing four eggs in the direction of the royal couple, all of which missed.
The protester was heard hollering: “This country was built on the blood of slaves.”
The King continued to shake the hands of local dignitaries including the lord mayor even as the eggs flew in his direction.
At one point however the monarch briefly paused to look at the cracked shells at the ground.
North Yorkshire Police later confirmed that a 23-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.
It was later revealed that he was an activist with Extinction Rebellion and a Green Party candidate for Hull Road ward in the 2019 York City Council elections.
