London (CNN) — Protesters enraged by a Parliament vote to triple university tuition rate caps, attacked a car carrying Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Thursday night.
The demonstrators broke a window and tossed paint on the car, however neither royal family member was injured in the attack.
‘We can confirm that their Royal Highnesses’ car was attacked by protesters on the way to their engagement at the London Palladium this evening,” a spokesman for the prince said. “Their Royal Highnesses are unharmed.”
The high-profile incident came late in day of violent protests that left at least 10 officers and 38 demonstrators hurt.
The attack followed a vote in the House of Commons to approve a plan to raise the existing cap on tuition rates charged by universities from £3,000 to £9,000. In U.S. dollars, that’s a nearly $10,000 increase — from roughly $4,700 to $14,000. Lawmakers approved the plan in a 323-302 vote.
