Prince Charles' Car Attacked During Student Protests in London
The Associated Press reported that protesters kicked the vehicle on Regent Street in downtown London, hours after the House of Commons approved a measure that will triple tuition for British universities to $14,000 a year.
A window on the royal car was smashed and the vehicle was hit by paint, but both Charles and Camilla were unhurt, the BBC reported.
"Their royal highnesses are unharmed," said Charles' office, Clarence House.
The car was able to leave the scene and the couple went on to London Palladium. Charles, the heir to the British throne, and his wife were attending a Royal Variety Performance, an annual music and dance event, at the theater.
The Daily Mail quoted onlookers as saying Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, appeared extremely shaken as she arrived at the event.
