Zoo activists covered the face of Charles III with stickers from the cartoon

Activists from the animal protection organization Animal Rising covered the first one with stickers official portrait of the British King Charles III after his coronation. So they wanted to draw the monarch’s attention to the suffering of animals on British farms.

They reported this on the organization’s social network.

Currently, the portrait of King Charles III is exhibited at the Philip Mould Gallery in London.

A video circulated on social networks shows how two activists from Animal Rising pasted an image of the character Wallace from the cartoon “Wallace and Gromit” onto the monarch’s face, and next to them pasted the inscription “No cheese, Gromit. Look at all the cruelty on RSPCA farms.

King Charles III is supposedly a big fan of Wallace and Gromit, so the cartoon character stickers would probably get his attention, activists say.

«While we hope this will entertain His Majesty, we urge him to seriously consider whether he wants to be associated with the suffering of animals on RSPCA-approved farms», — they noted in a comment to Sky News.

In March, the organization Animal Rising published a report claiming that 45 different farms in the UK with the RSPCA quality mark were cruel to animals. That is why activists are calling on the British king to suspend support for the organization.

Recall that the first official portrait of King Charles III in honor of the anniversary of his coronation was presented in May. The painting, painted by artist Jonathan Yeo, was criticized by netizens.

In the portrait, the monarch is depicted in the uniform of the Welsh Guards with a sword in his hand, and a butterfly sits on his shoulder, symbolizing metamorphosis and rebirth.
