A woman who was arrested during the proclamation of the new king’s accession in Edinburgh has been charged.

Moments before Charles III was proclaimed monarch of Scotland, a demonstrator appeared in the crowd holding a placard reading “to hell with imperialism, abolish the monarchy”.

A spokesman for the force said: “A 22-year-old woman was arrested outside St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh, on Sunday 11 September 2022 in connection with a public order offence.

“She was charged and released with an undertaking to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.”
