"Nine Police Officers Seriously Injured As Mob Attack Prince."

Anarchists protesting against the rise in student tuition fees attacked Prince Charles and Camilla's car outside the London Palladium tonight.

The couple were due to attend the Royal Variety Performance, which was taking place close to the epicentre of a day of violent protest in Parliament Square.

Clarence House said that the couple were unharmed, even though they were inside the car when the mob struck in the Regent Street attack.

White paint exploded across the rear of the passenger side of the car and a window was broken.

Onlookers said Camilla looked extremely shaken after the incident.
