One key moment left a poignant record for many observers.
The speech commemorating the official opening of Parliament is as follows: written by public officials. Charles said in the document that the administration will work to “help ease the cost of living for families” amid economic uncertainty.
Critics found it a bit odd given the setting. Dressed in full royal attire, Charles gave a speech while seated on a bejeweled throne adorned with a jewel of the Senate.
Needless to say, comments and settings didn’t go unnoticed on social media.
