King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla's waxwork statues in London's Madame Tussauds have been hit with chocolate cakes by Just Stop Oil activists. 

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla's Madame Tussauds waxworks have been targeted by Just stop Oil protesters who smeared chocolate cake over its face in a bid to highlight their campaign.

King Charles III ascended to the throne last month following the death of his mother, the Queen Elizabeth II, who died aged 96.

According to reports, at around 10.50am this morning (Monday, 24th October) four people were arrested after police were called to the popular London museum.

The protestors are understood to have carried out the cake smearing stunt in order to "demand the Government halts all new oil and gas licences and consents".

The actions of the activists were backed by the Just Stop Oil campaigners who shared the following statement on their Twitter account, "Just Stop Oil cakes the King."

It added, "Two supporters of Just Stop Oil have covered a Madame Tussauds waxwork model of King Charles III with chocolate cake, demanding that the Government halts all new oil and gas licences and consents."

From the video clip you can see two activists walk up to the waxworks, remove their own tops to reveal white t-shirts with 'Just Stop Oil' slogans on before reaching into their bags to each pull out a chocolate cream cake which they then began smearing it on the statue of the King's face as they announced, "The time for words has moved to the time for action."
