During the Queen’s extraordinary 70 years on the throne she has experienced a few troubling incidents during visits to foreign countries. I’ll outline 3 times she’s had eggs thrown at her, and a few hit her.
The Queens New Zealand Egg Incident in 1984!
In 1984 during a visit to New Zealand two women masquerading as crowd control officers hurled raw eggs at Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II as she rode in an open car, splattering yellow egg yolk across her pink coat according to the Los Angeles Times.
The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, were standing in a four-wheel-drive vehicle waving at about 42,000 schoolchildren gathered at Ellerslie Race Course to greet the royal couple.
At the halfway point of the drive, two protesters emerged from the crowd and threw the eggs from close range. One egg hit the queen’s full-length pink coat low on the thigh, while another smashed into the car’s windshield.
As the prince mopped up the egg trickling down her coat, the queen appeared visibly upset by the attack and left the vehicle.
Police dragged the two women away while spectators screamed abuse at them for the attack. The suspects were booked on charges of assault and disorderly behavior.
The women told police they threw the eggs as a protest against a treaty signed by the British Crown and New Zealand’s native Maoris 146 years ago.
The Queens German Egg Incident in 1992!
In another incident involving eggs this time during a 1992 visit to Dresden, Germany with her husband Prince Philip, the monarch was pelted by eggs once again because the area was brutally bombed by the British during World War 2.
According to royal historian Hugo Vickers, the Queen did not let the incident affect her and that she “carried it off well” when she visited the city’s Kreuzkirche church.
She was also booed by a strong crowd of 5000 people as she was entering the church.
