Anti-monarchist Jacki Pickett has uploaded a video of herself holding a sign saying Liz the Lizard was dead and London Bridge collapsed popping champagne bottle corks. The late Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday September 8 at her residence in Balmoral, Scotland. But Ms Pickett’s unpopular comments were not understood by the residents of Oldmuir, a small village in the north of Scotland. In fact, his very public Thursday night episode caught the attention of a crowd that began booing business owners and then throwing eggs at the storefront.
In the now deleted video, the owner can be heard saying “London Bridge is down. Whoa” while dancing outside.
The incident prompted the arrival of the police, who began closing the store for the owner’s safety.
It now appears the shop window was vandalized overnight, with windows smashed and more eggs thrown over them.
According to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for Police Scotland said police had been made aware of reports of damage and that police were seeking to establish the circumstances.
A passerby told the Daily Mail: “Some people threw eggs at his window, others sprayed ketchup on the window. I drove myself to see what was going on and the streets were packed. folks, the police are there too.
“Then Jaki, the owner of the potato chip shop and the woman in the video, drove away with a police escort and her car was hit by rocks and other objects.
“Police stayed a little longer to prevent further damage to the store, but that didn’t happen.”
The Queen began her final journey today as her coffin left her Balmoral residence and drove six hours south to Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh.
The Queen will rest in the Scottish capital on Monday, and the King and Queen will travel through the city for a procession from Holyrood Palace to St Giles Cathedral.
At 2:55 p.m. the coffin will be carried into the cathedral with the Scottish crown on it.
The coffin will be flown to London on Tuesday to rest at Buckingham Palace before being taken to Westminster Hall for burial until 11 a.m. on September 19 at Westminster Abbey.
It will be a public holiday and the schools are closed.
