The heir to the throne and his consort under attack? Isn't this the traditional response?
But as this didn't happen the news coverage seems a bit disproportionate. If you drive into a riot surely you can expect to get your car jostled. Anyway no harm done, at least to them.
UPDATE: Just remembered I wrote this about young graduates and how things suck for them. Things have got worse. Blame the baby boomers?
