The newly anointed King Charles III ignored and carried on his way a group of protesters who held up yellow placards reading: ‘Not My King.’
The 74-year-old monarch travelled to Milton Keynes on Thursday in celebration of it gaining status as a city, a classification which was awarded during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
Upon his arrival at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone, about 20 protesters held up yellow signs denouncing the monarchy, as organised by anti-monarchy group Republic.

The group is also planning on protesting King Charles’ coronation on May 6th. The group’s leader, Graham Smith, took to Twitter to reveal that Charles did not answer when asked why he is ‘wasting money on the coronation.’
‘We’re determine to get the message across that it’s OK to protest against the royals’ said Smith, as several anti-royal protesters started getting arrested for holding solo pickets after legislation on protest was toughened.
