A man has gone viral after sharing the incredible reaction King Charles had when he asked him to go out for a beer.
Daniel Walker, 36, a senior e-commerce specialist from Birmingham, recently shared the hilarious exchange with the new monarch – leading Twitter users to fondly observe his apparently similar humour to the late Queen.
In the clip, King Charles waves to a crowd, as Daniel says: “Charles, do you want to go for a beer?”
His Majesty simply replies: “What?” and as the question is repeated, his eyes light up as he asks: “Where?”
The crowd, including King Charles, erupt in laughter and he points back before saying: “You’ll have to recommend somewhere.”
While mourning the nation’s loss, Daniel believes he will make a great leader and the fun memory is one he will cherish forever.
“It’s something I could talk about for the rest of my life,” he told NeedToKnow.online.
“I think he’s going to be a good leader, as growing up, a lot of people I know benefited from the Prince’s Trust and after this stunt, it’s made me recognise all the hard work he’s done.
“I had only finished work and was walking to meet my mates for a drink, where I was minding my own business – until I suddenly saw him.
“I thought, if I’m going for a pint, perhaps I’ll ask if he wants one as well.
“I think he thought he was getting heckled at first, as I was shouting his name and I’m quite tall, so the initial response was slightly rude.
“But after I repeated myself, I couldn’t believe it as I didn’t think he would respond to me.”
Daniel claims King Charles’ security began laughing and proceeded to ask for him to wait, as the royal wanted to meet him.
He said: “I got to meet him after and shake his hand.
He was about to walk off, but then saw me and put his hand out before asking what I did as a job.
“He commented I was a ‘proper Brummie lad’ and wished me all the best.
“It’s made me like him even more because I saw his human side.
“People don’t see all the good things he’s done, as they’re always looking for the negative – but I’ve got a lot of respect for him.
“I hope he’s still up for that pint, as it’d be unbelievable.
“It can be my treat as well, as a good luck on his new job.”
The clip was filmed at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 28 July 2022 by Andrew Gould.
After it was shared on TikTok, the popular post racked up 8.5 million views and 700,000 likes.
Users flocked to the comments to share their reactions, with many sharing their own experiences of meeting the King.
One user said: “He has the same sense of humour as his mum.”
“Fortunate enough to have met him twice and in private he’s so down to earth and funny,” one viewer commented.
Another person added: “Charles response ‘what’ spoken like a true royal.”
“He’s winning me over,” someone else said.
Another person added: “The future king has time for people.”
“He’s really funny! Met him when I was 17 and asked if I could marry one of his sons.
He said ‘take your pick,’ one user commented, followed by a laughing face emoji.
