There was a massive crowd at Buckingham Palace waiting to greet King Charles and his wife Camilla. But things didn’t go quite as planned for the new King and Queen… Charles couldn’t seem to figure out how to get into the palace. He literally couldn’t find the front door. Page Six reported that King Charles III entered Buckingham Palace for the first time as monarch after Queen Elizabeth II’s death — but became confused over which door to walk through.
Here’s the crowd that greeted Charles:

After shaking hands and greeting onlookers outside the royal residence on Friday, the 73-year-old walked along the perimeter with Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles, looking at notes and bouquets of flowers beside the gate.
As the pair approached one gate, Charles paused, turned around, and pointed to another behind him.
“He doesn’t seem to know quite which entrance to go in through,” a BBC reporter joked during the livestream. “He’ll get used to that. Wrong door.”
When Charles finally walked to the correct gate and into the palace, the newscaster noted that it is a “rare move” for royal family members to enter “on foot” as they often drive in by motorcade or, on special occasions, ride in on horseback.

Well, I am sure he’ll get the hang of things in no time. You can’t really blame him, he’s probably still thinking of his mother right now.
Let’s just hope King Charles has the common sense to hold back his “woke ways” and rule as his very bipartisan mother did.
But sadly, I don’t have much faith in that, so we’ll probably hear some really stupid things coming out of the palace very soon.
