Animal rights activists have "spoiled" the first official portrait of King Charles, which is on display in a London gallery. The organization Animal Rising published a video in which two people use a roller to stick posters on the portrait of the monarch.

The activists covered the king's head with an image of the British cartoon character Wallace from the comedy series "Wallace and Gromit", CNN report. Then a sticker with the text was attached to the picture: "No Gromit cheese, look at all this cruelty on RSCPA farms."

Animal Rising called the result of the analysis "damning," claiming that they found "animal abuse."
