King Charles III's words after being pelted by eggs earlier today have been revealed by a lip reader.
The monarch and Queen Consort Camilla were walking around York when they came under fire from a lone egg-man who missed the couple with each of his three attempts.
As crowds gathered behind barriers lined across a pavement to a road closed for the Royals to walk down, vehement shouting could be heard.
Outside a row of independent businesses, someone yelled in the direction of the King: "This country was built on the blood of slaves."
Uniformed police then scrambled to swarm the suspected assailant under the supervision of men who appear to be private security.
Charles and Camilla were swiftly ushered away by their security staff to avoid any further danger or risk of harm.
Members of the crowd responded to the chaos with chants of “God save the King” and “shame on you” at the alleged perpetrator.
Surprisingly the King appeared unfazed by the flying animal by-products on his walkabout this morning (Wednesday, November 9) greeting fans.
But, according to lip reading expert Jeremy Freeman, speaking to the Mirror, his words after the chaos were: “It's fine, let's carry one."
Another officer asked him: “Everything alright?” – although he didn't respond to that question.
The alleged egg-thrower was arrested and handcuffed by two police officers. He was taken away in a police van.
This disruption came as hundreds of well-wishers and the musical band The York Waits lined in central York to welcome the royal couple.
Their Majesties travelled to York to unveil a statue of the late Queen Elizabeth II at York Minster.
A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence, North Yorkshire Police said.
The Daily Star has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
