Prince Charles' car attacked by protesters

Royal car attacked by protesters

The car carrying Prince Charles has been attacked by protesters in London.

Charles - who is next in line to be King - and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall weren't hurt when people smashed the window and threw paint at the car.

The protesters are angry about changes to the law over how much people pay to go to university.

The couple were travelling to the theatre for a big show called the Royal Variety Performance.

They arrived safely and went on to meet the likes of Take That and Kylie.
