Harry Spartacus May, 21, is accused of throwing an egg at the monarch on December 6. Charles III, 74, was then in Luton to meet with city officials, charities and visit a new Sikh temple.
After an initial hearing at Luton District Court on Monday, a second hearing is scheduled for Friday, the BBC reported.
The young man has not yet pleaded guilty or not guilty, but is accused of using words or engaging in threatening or abusive behavior.
In early November, a 23-year-old man was arrested in York, northern England, after throwing eggs at the new ruler as he walked and shook hands in the city center in company of his wife Camilla.
Charged with “threatening behavior”, he is due to appear on January 20 in a court in York.
“This country was built with the blood of slaves,” he would have shouted before being arrested by several police officers, at a time when the country is increasingly confronted with its slavery and colonialist past. The suspect was later released on bail.
Arrived on the throne in September after the death of Elizabeth II, Charles III is much less popular than his mother.
