Woman, 55, slammed for ‘disgraceful’ stunt after running topless through Windsor streets on Prince Philip’s funeral

A WOMAN who flashed at Prince Philip’s funeral while yelling “save the envrionement” was today branded “disgraceful” as she was fined.

Shameless Marissa Scott ran topless through Windsor just moments after a minute’s silence was held to remember the Duke of Edinburgh.

The 55-year-old was seen by horrified families including children during the stunt on April 17 as grieving royals gathered at St George’s Chapel.

She today pleaded guilty to causing harassment, alarm or distress under the Public Order Act at Slough Magistrates’ Court.

Scott was fined £150, and made to £85 in prosecution costs and a £34 victim surcharge.

Deputy senior district judge Tan Ikram told her: “Your behaviour was disgraceful. There were crowds there – family, children.

“People would have found it wholly offensive what you did.”

The court was told Scott “exposed her breasts” as crowds gathered in Windsor for Philip’s funeral.

Dressed only in shorts, sunglasses and a cap Scott was dragged away from the crows by officers as they asked people to move.

After she was arrested, she told police “she wanted to show solidarity with the World Wildlife Foundation and save the planet” and “didn’t think it would cause any distress”.

Speaking from the dock, Scott said: “I behaved irrationally and stupidly out of character.”
