The emergence of a new anti-royal protest group has been warmly welcomed by Republic, who plan to hold further protests at the King’s Coronation.

Westminster Abbey: Protesters gather against King Charles

A new anti-monarchy campaign group targeting King Charles has staged a protest at Windsor Castle, with two members posing for a kiss on a bed with one of them wearing a top branding the group’s name, No More Royals. The group said: “People of our generation are done with bowing and curtseying to this family of colonisers who pretend to care about us.” They added via Twitter that “Anybody that acts on behalf of equality, justice, kindness & solidarity is invited to become a founder of this movement.”

Graham Smith said on behalf of Republic: “The public mood is clearly moving away from the monarchy. Now Republic is joined by No More Royals who are aiming to speak for a generation of people angry about the inequality represented by the monarchy.

“Protests will continue before, during and long after the Coronation. And we will see more people stepping up to challenge this ridiculous and elitist institution.”

Since succeeding his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth, in September the King has faced a number of republican protests, including on royal visits to Milton Keynes and Colchester.

However, according to information provided by the Met Police Charles has not experienced a noticeable increase in protests since his reign began.

Responding to a Freedom of Information request, the Met Police told “I can confirm that the MPS [Metropolitan Police Service] has not recorded a noticeable increase in protests against the monarchy and its members since September 2022.”

After the death of the Queen in September a number of lone protesters expressed their anti-monarchy views, with a man named Symon Hill arrested and then de-arrest on September 11 for supposedly making comments at a proclamation ceremony for the King.
