A British government minister says student protesters made physical contact with the wife of Prince Charles during an attack on the couple's car.
Home Secretary Theresa May said Sunday that "there was contact made," although she would not confirm reports Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had been poked with a stick.
The prince's office also declined to comment, but stressed that the royal couple did not seek medical help after Thurday's altercation.
Experts have called for an overhaul of royal security after the attack on the royals, whose Rolls Royce strayed into the path of protesters against tuition fee hikes.
They hit the car with sticks, fists and bottles and chanted "Off with their heads" before the vehicle pushed its way through the crowd and drove off.
