Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour’s son charged over royal convoy attack

Charlie Gilmour accused of violent disorder following student protest

The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been charged in connection with an attack on a convoy carrying Prince Charles.

The incident took place on Regent Street in London on December 9 last year during a protest about student fees.

The Cambridge University student appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday (February 11), in connection to an incident that saw him allegedly sit on the bonnet of a car carrying royal protection officers.


Gilmour is also alleged to have thrown a rubbish bin at the convoy, hitting a car, but not the one containing Prince Charles and Camilla, reports Sky News.

Accused of violent disorder, Gilmour did not enter a plea and the case was adjourned until March 25.

As previously reported, Gilmour was recently charged with violent disorder after he was pictured swinging from a Union flag on the Cenotaph in Whitehall last December.

Meanwhile, an earlier charge of the theft of a mannequin leg has been withdrawn.
