The members of the Just Stop Oil organisation vandalised King Charles III’s wax replica at London’s renowned Madame Tussauds museum on Monday.
This is the most recent in a string of protests that have called for a stop to oil as well as gas drilling since the beginning of the month.
According to a statement from Just Stop Oil, two of the group’s ticket-purchased members hit the wax statue of the monarch with a chocolate cake.
During the event, one of the protesters echoed Charles, the then-Prince of Wales, underlining that the young people of his grandchildren’s generation “expect urgent action, not just words.” Charles, who is currently king, has a long history of supporting environmental and conservationist issues.
Along with this, Just Stop Oil said in a tweet that they are doing these activities in advance of COP27 since King Charles III apparently decided not to attend the climate conference where he was scheduled to give a speech. On the recommendation of former prime minister Liz Truss, the decision was made not to attend.

“Science supports this. Stopping brand-new oil and gas projects is a clear desire. It’s simple as pie, “campaigners Tom Johnson, 29, and Eilidh McFadden, 20, stated in a statement.
Beginning in early October, the Just Stop Oil organisation organised a number of daily protests and blockades in London, including the pouring of soup on Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” at the National Gallery and the painting of an Aston Martin shop.
