Anti-Monarchy Protester With ‘Not My King’ Sign Led Away By Police

An anti-monarchist WAS led away from Westminster Palace by police after she held up a sign protesting King Charles’s ascension to the throne.

The woman, wearing a straw hat, was escorted away from the palace gates after unfurling a hand-drawn sign, proclaiming: “Not My King” on Monday.

She was led away by five police officers and made to stand on the other side of the road.

A witness said she was not arrested and was allowed to continue her protest.

“She wasn’t arrested and stood with her sign with the media and other people waiting for the King.”

According to another witness, the protester said that it’s not a democratic thing for a King to be head of state without it being put to the public.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “A member of the public was asked to move away from the Carriage Gates outside the Palace of Westminster this morning in order to facilitate vehicle access and egress through the gates. “She was not arrested and was not asked to leave the wider area.”

This was after another woman was charged after holding an ‘abolish monarchy’ sign during the Accession Proclamation for the new King in Edinburgh.

Moments before the proclamation of Charles III as new king on Sunday afternoon, a demonstrator appeared in the crowd opposite the Mercat Cross.

She held a sign with some profanity adding ‘abolish monarchy’.

Officers appeared behind her and took her away, prompting the crowd to applaud while one man shouted: “Let her go, it’s free speech”.

A police spokesman said a 22-year-old woman was arrested “in connection with a breach of the peace”.

Some hecklers has earlier in the day been heard booing during the event.

During the first proclamation of Charles, the Lord Lyon King of Arms gave a speech before declaring “God save the king”, which the crowd repeated.

One man was heard booing throughout the cheers.

The national anthem was then sung but. Still people could be heard calling for a republic.
