King Charles Portrait Vandalized In London’s Philip Mould Gallary

The official portrait of King Charles, which was unveiled to the public last month, was vandalized on June 11th by two members of Anima Rising Org. The organization ruined the painting to draw the King’s attention to animal cruelty in various RSPCA farms across the UK.

According to video footage circulating around social media, two men vandalized the painting, which was on display at London’s Philip Mould Gallary. In the video, we see one of the men paste the face of a cartoon character from “Wallace and Gromit” over the King’s face. Another man added a speech bubble on the painting, which reads, “No Cheese Gromit, look at all the cruelty on RSPCA farms.”

Animal Rising Org admitted using the painting to grab King Charles's attention. The animal welfare organization stated that their investigation reports suggest that at least 45 RSPCA farms across the UK are farming animals through cruelty. Needless to say, these farms add an “RSPCA assured” label on farm products that indicates that no animal has been abused to produce the particular product, which encourages buyers to pay more just for that label.


However, Animal Rising Org claims that RSPCA is pocketing profit from the products without ensuring animal safety. Since King Charles has been a big supporter of RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), the organization decided to bring his attention to the matter.

A statement released from Animal Rising Org says, “Charles has made it very clear that he is sensitive to the suffering of animals in UK farms. Now is the perfect time for him to step up and call on the RSPCA to drop the Assured Scheme and tell the truth about animal farming.
