    A waxwork of King Charles III has been smeared with custard pies by two Just Stop Oil protesters at London's Madame Tussauds.

    Video footage from the incident shows a man and a woman donning T-shirts with the campaign logo on the front as they slammed custard pies on the face of the model.

    Witnesses were heard yelling for them to stop, but the bloke responded by shouting: "In the words of the King…"

    The woman then started yelling that the use of oil "must stop now" as greenhouse gasses are "increasing at a terrifying rate."

    People asked the pair not to stand there as the brazen bloke placed his hand on the shoulder of the waxwork they had just defaced.

    Twitter users were left outraged by the clip of the incident which took place at 10.50am today (October 24).

    One user wrote: "That is not a peaceful protest. That is damage to private property."

    Another added: "So king Charles is all for going carbon neutral and this is their response? Am I the only one confused by all this?"

    A third commented: "Utter madness!"

    Others branded them "idiots" and "thickos" as they demanded the pair be charged.

    However, Metropolitan Police have confirmed the pair have been held accused of criminal damage.

    A spokesperson tweeted: "We responded quickly to an incident at Madame Tussauds after two people threw food at a statue at approximately 10:50hrs.

    "They have both been arrested for criminal damage."

    The police have also been approached by the Daily Star for further comment on the incident.

    It comes after the climate-change activists defended a sit-in outside an oil terminal by claiming King Charles would back their protest.

    Last month, while the country was in mourning over the death of the Queen, the group defended their protests claiming the new monarch would be okay with it, The Times reported.

    King Charles III has been a prominent campaigner on green issues and even runs his Aston Martin on “surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process.”
