An anti-monarchist who planned to throw horse manure at Prince Charles and Camilla has been ordered to stay away from the royal couple by a New Zealand court.
Sam Bracanov, 76, was arrested in Auckland - where the royal couple are currently visiting - and pleaded not guilty to preparing to commit a crime.
Bracanov was ordered to stay 500 metres away from the Prince of Wales and his wife as part of his bail conditions and will re-appear in court later this month.
Outside the court, he told reporters he would have thrown manure at Charles and Camilla had he not been arrested, saying: "I make it liquid like porridge. I would have done it."
The anti-monarchist has protested against the royal family in the past. In 1994, he was convicted and fined for spraying air fresheners at Prince Charles to "remove the stink of royalty".
Prince Charles has celebrated his 64th birthday by going behind the scenes at the new Hobbit film.
