Man charged after Prince Andrew heckled during royal procession | UK News

A 22-year-old man has been charged after Prince Andrew was impaled during yesterday’s procession down the Royal Mile.

Police Scotland arrested him in connection with a breach of the peace.

It happened while King Charles led senior members of the Royal Family to St Giles’ Church in Edinburgh – followed by a hearse carrying Queen’s coffin.

A statement added: “He has been released with a pledge to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff’s Court at a later date and a report will be sent to Fiscal Procuratorate.”

No other arrests have been made in connection with the incident and police will not confirm if any investigation is ongoing.

During the procession, the Queen’s coffin was carried from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to the cathedral.

The King led the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex and the Princess Royal with her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence on foot, while the Queen and Countess of Wessex followed by car.

The Queen’s children and a congregation drawing from all sectors of Scottish society later attended a ceremony to give thanks for her life.

Her coffin has been resting since yesterday afternoon – and will leave Scotland for the last time later today as the poignant journey to Buckingham Palace begins.
