King Charles III, who's not slowing down despite his cancer diagnosis, has fallen victim to a cruel campaign in London.

The first official portrait of the King Charles III since the Coronation, which was unveiled at Buckingham Palace in May, has been destroyed by protestors.

In the portrait, that attracted massive reactions at the time of unveiling due to its uniqueness, the King is seen wearing the uniform of the Welsh Guards in the vibrant oil painting which was displayed at the Phillip Mould Gallery.

Animal Rising protesters left everyone in shock as they put a picture of the cartoon character Wallace from the animation Wallace & Gromit over King Charles's portrait.

After defacing the portrait, they protesters added a speech bubble next to Wallace containing the words: "No cheese Gromit, look at all this cruelty on RSPCA farms!"

The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has had a royal patron since 1840 when Queen Victoria became their first royal patron and gave the organisation the royal in their name.

The new attack comes day after the royal family shared a brand new video of King Charles' honour to Catherine's Irish Guards. 

The King, as Colonel-in-Chief of the seven Guards regiments of the Household Division, presented New Colours to No. 9 and No. 12 Company The Irish Guards at Windsor Castle.
