London (CNN) -- Protesters enraged by a Parliament vote to triple university tuition rates attacked a car carrying Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of York, Thursday night.

The demonstrators broke a window and tossed paint on the car, however neither royal family member appeared to have been injured in the attack.

The attack followed a vote in the House of Commons to approve a plan to raise the existing cap on tuition rates charged by universities from £3,000 to £9,000. In U.S. dollars, that's a nearly $10,000 increase -- from roughly $4,700 to $14,000. Lawmakers approved the plan in a 323-302 vote. The measure awaits approval by the House of Lords and a signature by the queen before it can become law.

The vote capped hours of debate inside Parliament and an all-day protest by thousands of demonstrators outside who say the plan will price many students out of a university education. Supporters say the tuition cap hike is needed to cut the government's massive deficit.

In recent weeks, the proposal has spawned multiple public protests, set off tremors within the nation's coalition government and prompted a back-seat revolt among some Liberal Democrats in Parliament.

Liberal Democrats are lesser partners in a coalition government ruled by Conservatives.
