Yob who threw eggs at King Charles revealed as XR gardener Patrick Thelwell after he’s dramatically arrested by cops | The Sun
A YOB who threw eggs at King Charles is an Extinction Rebellion gardener.
Patrick Thelwell, 24, has also been a Green Party candidate for York City council.
Thelwell has previously attended big Extinction Rebellion protests and been arrested several times.
In 2019 he was among four people in a so-called peace tent in Trafalgar Square.
And last year he was convicted for obstructing a highway after joining protests blocking newspaper printing presses.
Footage also showed him last year being removed from a community centre where he was squatting.
And he designs ecological gardens with his firm Patch Gardening. He is also preparing to study a PhD at the University of York.
He was detained this morning after throwing four eggs at His Majesty during a walkabout.
The idiot yob was bundled to the ground as the crowd yelled "shame on you" at him and "God save the King".
The eggs were seen whizzing past the King, a known environmentalist, as he met with members of the public during a visit to the area with Queen Camilla.

All the eggs failed to hit the King but one landed near him on the road.
His Majesty barely flinched. He turned round to look at the egg and stoically carried on.
Police pulled the man from the crowd and put him on the floor before dragging him away after the incident at Micklegate Bar in York.
He was then thrown into the back of a police van and removed from the scene.
Several images show the idiot sticking his tongue out as he was pulled away.

The King is on a visit to York to unveil a statue of Queen Elizabeth II.
Speaking at the ceremony at York Minster, His Majesty said: "The late Queen was always vigilant for the welfare of her people during her life.
"Now her image will watch over what will become Queen Elizabeth Square for centuries to come."
As police were detaining the man, Charles continued with a traditional ceremony which sees the sovereign officially welcomed to the city of York by the Lord Mayor.
It was last carried out by his mother, the Queen, in 2012.
Meanwhile, Princess Kate has visited families at a children's hospital today to discuss perinatal mental health issues.
