A MAN has been charged after an egg was allegedly thrown at the King during a walkabout yesterday.
The monarch was greeting crowds in Luton town centre when the incident is said to have taken place.
Cops arrested a man in his 20s on suspicion of assault at the time.
Bedfordshire Police today confirmed a 28-year-old man has been charged with a public order offence.
He is due to appear before Luton Magistrates’ Court on January 9.

King Charles, 74, was then temporarily steered away from members of the public by his security staff.
In a statement, the force said: “A 28-year-old man has been charged in relation to an incident which occurred during His Majesty King Charles III’s visit to Luton yesterday.
“The man was charged under section five of the Public Order Act and has been bailed.”
