Royal editor Andrew Pierce said: “His security personnel advised him to take a different route but as per usual Prince Charles knew best of course and insisted on going the way he had always gone to the theatre.
“And the car was surrounded by rioters.
“It could have been a very, very dangerous moment.”

Prince Charles’s safety has ben put at risk several times during the course of his life.

Matt Fiddes, Micheal Jackson’s former bodyguard, claimed Prince Charles’s team should have been praised at the highest level as it is thanks to his guard if the future King is still alive.
Mr Fiddes told Express.co.uk: “Charles’s bodyguard proved how great the Royal protection team are.
“He jumped to push Prince Charles out of the line of fire.
“And it shows he was willing to put his own life at risk and take a bullet for his client.
“A great example of what a bodyguard should be all about.”
