King Charles Falls Victim to Cruel Campaign in London Amid Cancer Battle

King Charles III, who is not slowing down despite his cancer diagnosis, has fallen victim to a cruel campaign in London.

The first official portrait of King Charles III since his coronation, unveiled at Buckingham Palace in May, has been destroyed by protesters.

The vibrant oil painting, which depicted the King wearing the uniform of the Welsh Guards, was displayed at the Phillip Mould Gallery and had attracted significant attention for its uniqueness.

In a shocking incident, Animal Rising protesters covered the King’s portrait with an image of Wallace, the cartoon character from the animation Wallace & Gromit.

They added a speech bubble next to Wallace that read, “No cheese Gromit, look at all this cruelty on RSPCA farms!”

This act of defacement is a protest against the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), which has had royal patronage since 1840 when Queen Victoria became their first royal patron and granted the organization its royal status.

The attack on the portrait occurred just a day after the royal family shared a new video honoring Catherine’s Irish Guards.

In the video, King Charles, as Colonel-in-Chief of the seven Guards regiments of the Household Division, presented New Colours to No. 9 and No. 12 Company of The Irish Guards at Windsor Castle.

This incident highlights the tensions between activism and respect for royal symbols, particularly as King Charles continues to fulfill his duties despite his health challenges.

The defacement of the portrait has left many shocked and underscores the ongoing debate over animal welfare practices associated with the RSPCA.
