She held a sign saying "f*** imperialism, abolish monarchy". Officers appeared behind her and took her away, prompting the crowd to applaud. One man shouted: "Let her go, it's free speech," while others yelled: "Have some respect."
During the first proclamation of Charles, the Lord Lyon King of Arms gave a speech before declaring "God save the King", which the crowd repeated.
Two anti-royalist protesters were arrested in the U.K. over the weekend amid King Charles III's ascension to the throne, with one activist calling the moves "an outrageous assault on democracy"
[...]One anti-royalist protester who got arrested on Sunday was close to a remembrance ceremony at Mercat Cross in Edinburgh, by St Giles' Cathedral, where the Queen's coffin will lie on Monday.
Symon Hill, 45, was also arrested for shouting "who elected him?" during a reading of a proclamation in Oxford, England on Sunday. ...Speaking to The Guardian, Hill said: "I don't think I've ever seen anyone arrested on such threadbare grounds, let alone experienced it myself.
A Thames Valley police spokesperson said: "A 45-year-old man was arrested in connection with a disturbance that was caused during the county proclamation ceremony of King Charles III in Oxford.
"He has subsequently been de-arrested < wipes tears > and is engaging with us voluntarily as we investigate a public order offense. The man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offense [under section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986]."
I was arrested today in #Oxford after I voiced my opposition to the proclamation of "#CharlesIII". Can we be arrested simply for expressing an opinion in public? I was arrested under the Police Bill passed earlier this year. This is an outrageous assault on democracy.#NotMyKing— Symon Hill (@SymonHill) September 11, 2022

The King for the time being, with the advice of his council, or the more part of them, may set forth proclamations under such penalties and pains as to him and them shall seem necessary, which shall be observed as though they were made by act of parliament; but this shall not be prejudicial to any person's inheritance, offices, liberties, goods, chattels or life; and whosoever shall willingly offend any article contained in the said proclamations, shall pay such forfeitures, or be so long imprisoned, as shall be expressed in the said proclamations; and if any offending will depart the realm, to the intent he will not answer his said offence, he shall be adjudged a traitor.
In our latest video we look at the execution of Thomas More, Henry VIII's Chancellor. He was beheaded upon Tower Hill in a brutal statement. #history #tudors #tudor #henryviii [_link]— TheUntoldPast (@theuntoldpast) January 3, 2021

41.Two fundamental principles of our constitutional law are relevant to the present case. The first is the principle of Parliamentary sovereignty: that laws enacted by the Crown in Parliament are the supreme form of law in our legal system, with which everyone, including the Government, must comply. However, the effect which the courts have given to Parliamentary sovereignty is not confined to recognising the status of the legislation enacted by the Crown in Parliament as our highest form of law.
42.The sovereignty of Parliament would, however, be undermined as the foundational principle of our constitution if the executive could, through the use of the prerogative, prevent Parliament from exercising its legislative authority for as long as it pleased. That, however, would be the position if there was no legal limit upon the power to prorogue Parliament (subject to a few exceptional circumstances in which, under statute, Parliament can meet while it stands prorogued). An unlimited power of prorogation would therefore be incompatible with the legal principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.
