Anarchist protesters outside the Houses of Parliament today were accused of wanton vandalism against one of the Queen's Horseboxes as it was driven nearby the baying mob.
Protesters were seen to aim kicks and punches, throw paint and smash the windows of the vehicle as it made its way past.
Nobby Trainspotter, one of the crowd, told us, "It was a case of mistaken identity. We're animal lovers, but someone shouted 'It's Camilla!' and that's when things really kicked off. We're very sorry and all that."
This is not the first time such a mistake has been made. Some years ago Princess Anne was attacked and ridden round the Jockey's Paddock at Ascot for some ten minutes, accrueing odds of 7/1, before she managed to buck her assailant off.
