According to ABS-CBN Europe, a British Filipina witnessed the attack on Prince Charles’ car.
Jenalyn Masilungan, who joined the march against increased tuition fees, said, “We’re not protesting against Prince Charles because he’s done nothing wrong to us. He has no say in what the government does. And I think it shouldn’t have got so out of hand with Prince Charles. That was the big story. No one cared about the protest, everyone cared about the attack on Prince Charles.”
