Camilla hit by rioter through car window as protesters attack royals
Ross Lydall and Justin Davenport
The Duchess of Cornwall was physically attacked through an open car window as thugs rampaged in London, the Standard can reveal today.
A rioter managed to push a stick into the royal limousine and jab her in the ribs. Camilla's terrifying ordeal came as a baying mob surrounded her and husband Prince Charles when they rode through central London in the vintage Rolls-Royce last night.
A police source said one of the car's rear windows was opened in error as tuition fee protesters moved in.
The attack is the biggest royal security breach in decades and raises new questions about protection of the couple. Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David, was with protesters in Regent Street when the car was hit.
The Standard can now reveal the security breach was even more serious than first believed, with thugs managing to reach deep into the car's
Armed officers were seconds from drawing their guns but the police driver managed to accelerate away from trouble.
Police sources have revealed that the Duchess was “very scared” when the yob leaned into the car. He said: “She is laughing about it now but everyone was rather shaken.”
A Clarence House spokesman said today: “Their Royal Highnesses understand the difficulties police face and are always grateful to them for the job they do in challenging circumstances.”

Think what might be coming to our country. There will be lots of cuts in expenditures (unless the dems get their way and spend us to bankruptcy.) We just might be seeing similar riots.

This is why the government paying for universal college is a bad thing.
Was talking about this to a bunch of brits who are college age. Seems like a lot of them end up with useless degrees and can't find work when they get out.
I like our system. Not everyone was meant to go through higher education. Ensuring that everyone doesn't makes sure we don't have people earning a bachelors on our tax dollars, just so they can become a janitor 4 years later then they would have in the first place.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
