Jonathan Elliott, 47, was arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace after running at the car containing the royal couple.

Prince of Wales opens new rehab unit for wounded soldiers

The Prince of Wales has opened a new rehabilitation centre for wounded service

personnel in Surrey, where he spoke about the number of British service

personnel being wounded in Afghanistan "on a daily basis" and said the number

of troops being injured is "astonishing".

Charles said the public does not hear much about the number of people suffering

wounds in the conflict, where his youngest son, Harry, is currently serving his

second tour of duty.

He was speaking as he opened a £16.9 million complex at the Defence Medical

Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) for wounded service personnel at Headley Court.

Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall toured the facility before opening the

48-bed Jubilee Rehabilitation Complex, which includes therapy

rooms and a gym for rehabilitation of wounded soldiers and a workshop for

hi-tech prosthetic limbs.
