Protester arrested at King Charles’ proclamation in Edinburgh faces charges

TWO people arrested during the accession proclamation for the new King in Edinburgh have been charged.

A 74-year-old man arrested in connection with a breach of the peace near the Palace of Holyroodhouse has also been charged and will appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.

A spokesman for the force said: “A 22-year-old woman was arrested outside St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh on Sunday 11 September in connection with a breach of the peace.

“She was charged and released on a promise to appear before Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.”

Minutes before the announcement of the proclamation began in Edinburgh, a protester appeared at Mercat Cross holding up a sign that read: “Fuck imperialism, abolish the monarchy.”

Police Scotland later confirmed the protester had been arrested.

A procession of the Queen’s coffin from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to the Cathedral is due to take place later on Monday.

A spokesman for the force added: “A 74-year-old man was arrested around 3.50pm on Sunday 11 September near Holyroodhouse Palace in connection with a breach of the peace. He was later charged and is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday 12 September.”
