Piers Corbyn, the brother of Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn, was among the protestors gathered outside of Colchester Library this afternoon. A handful of people supporting republicanism booed as King Charles and Queen Camilla arrived at the library for the second leg of their day in Essex.
The anti-monarchists were positioned among royal fans patiently waiting for the sovereign and his wife.
While the number of protestors was reportedly small, they let out loud boos as soon as Charles and Camilla arrived for their engagements.
Shrugging off the jeering, both the King and Queen Consort waved and smiled at the fans upon entering the library.
Mr Corbyn, a climate change denier and anti-vaccine activist, was among those spotted holding placards.

However, he was reportedly not protesting the monarchy itself but, rather, he was expressing his views against eco-policies among other political issues.
Mr Corbyn was photographed in Colchester holding a yellow placard reading: “Charles must serve the UK, not the World Economic Forum’s tyranny”.
Charles and Camilla were also met with protestors upon their arrival at Colchester Castle.
The protestors organised by Republic – which campaigns in favour of the election of the next head of state – booed Their Majesties as they left their car and briefly exchanged words with school pupils and members of the military lined up to welcome them.
