  • Two activists vandalized a portrait of King Charles II on Tuesday afternoon.
  • They protested for better animal rights.

The first official portrait of King Charles III was unveiled at the Philip Mold Gallery in London. Victim of vandalism. Two Animal Rising activists covered the King's face with Wallace and Gromit posters in protest against the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The operation took place around 12 noon. One poster showed Wallace's face, while another speech bubble read: “No cheese, Gromit. Look at all this cruelty on RSPCA farms!”

Campaigners are calling on King Charles to end his support for the RSPCA, of which he is a patron, until the confirmed scheme, designed to protect animal welfare standards, is scrapped. Daniel Juniper, one of the participants, said: “With King Charles being a huge fan of Wallace and Gromit, we couldn't think of a better way to draw his attention to the horrific scenes on the RSPCA's reserve farms.”

Activists report violations of the law

He added: “While we hope His Majesty finds this interesting, we also urge him to think seriously about whether he wants to be associated with the terrible suffering on RSPCA-backed farms.”

The group's campaign aims to raise awareness of the investigation into 45 RSPCA-certified farms, where they allegedly found 280 breaches of the law and 94 breaches of DEFRA regulations. Activists reported animal cruelty and suffering on all farms examined.
