The outlet noted that Prince William and Prince Harry's dad appeared frustrated to have both a pen box and the inkpot on the small desk, where he also needed to fit the large documents. Thus, he ordered the aides to clear the desk leading the items to be rearranged.

When the documents were placed, King Charles reportedly signaled to an aide to remove the pen box from the table to give him room to sign the historic document.

King Charles Viral Video Received Mixed Responses From The Netizens

Online users have mixed opinions about the viral video. Some quickly judged the new monarch and questioned his behavior.

"Manners cost nothing!" one user commented, per Newsweek. Another added: "Took him more effort to wave his hand a dozen times than to move it himself."

"This is the real Charles you can't hide who you are this is how he's been treating the servants for years with such little respect. Fanning his finger to clean the desk off and move the object. Showing your real Arrogance you will fail it's in the cards," another netizen added.

However, some sided with the new monarch and found the incident relatable. According to some, they would react the same as King Charles in the same situation.

"To be fair to him, it's a big occasion and they got him the world's smallest table," wrote one Twitter user.

"Very bad set up of equipment. It was set up for the subsequent signing from the front of the desk which would made sense of the inkwell position. The inkwell at 'the front' made for very awkward signing. Bad stage management. He played low status to the inkwell," another user opined.
