<p>A grey-haired lady wearing white can be seen approaching the pair as they emerge from the church after the wedding and starting to toss orange confetti on them in a video the group released on their Twitter account. Notably, the confetti resembled the orange powder that the Just Stop Oil group often throws over their heads, according to the Guardian.</p>
<p>Until a security officer took her away, the lady followed the pair and dumped confetti from a union jack bag over them as they walked.</p>
<p>“You look good in orange @George_Osborne – congratulations to the newlyweds,” the nonviolent civil resistance organisation, which is calling on the UK government to cease licencing all new oil, gas and coal projects, tweeted on Twitter.</p>
<p>Priti Patel, a former UK home minister, described the Just Stop Oil protester’s action as “shameful” on Sunday. She tweeted about the video and said, “JSO are shameful, attention-seeking, disrespectful low life.”</p>
