Kate and Prince William’s visit to Falmouth today was disrupted by a lone protestor who hold up a blank piece of paper. The man stood among royal fans lining up the street outside of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall toured by the Prince and Princess.

Police officers swept in after he lifted his sign and walked him away from the crowd.

He was detained, but not arrested, by the officers.

The Sun’s royal correspondent Matt Wilkinson claimed the man later told him, when asked why he protested: “It’s the 21st century we don’t need a monarchy any more, it’s f***ng ridiculous”.
