“Charles”, “So glad to see you” … The apostrophes of the genre rang out this Friday in the crowd who came to welcome Charles III to Oxham, a Welsh city best known for its football club, recently bought by two Hollywood stars, the actors Ryan Reynolds and Robert McElhenney. The royal couple also made a detour to the stadium, congratulating the husband of Blake Lively for his gesture, a crazy adventure already two years old, retraced in the documentary Welcome to Wrexham broadcast last summer in the United Kingdom . A boon also for Oxham whose economy has been boosted by this nice publicity stunt. On the verge of bankruptcy before the pandemic, the football club, founded in 1864, belonged to a fan association. Enough to motivate Charles III and the Queen consort to honor football fans with their presence. The monarch and his wife arrived “unexpectedly” during a training session for the women’s team before warmly congratulating Ryan Reynolds and his accomplice.

The Welsh also answered the call this Friday to greet Charles III and Camilla. A walkabout during which the king seems to have been very annoyed by the woman’s behavior. “Can we bring her back, please?” Asks the monarch to his security service in a video taken on the spot and relayed by the Twitter account The Royal Family Channel. And to add, impatient: “We have to go! I tried to wait for her, but she does not stop.” A rare bloodshed by Charles III immediately commented on social networks. “Kings… in the end, they are like all the other husbands”, jokes one Internet user, while another decrypts: “You have to remember that he is probably really very stressed at the moment. The broadcast of the docuseries of Meghan & Harry on Netflix is ​​indeed causing a stir at Buckingham Palace, already shaken a month ago by the very “sulphurous” fifth season of The Crown which returned to the scandals of the 90s.

Why Charles III is worried

If he decided to write a new page in the history of the British monarchy, Charles III must also suffer the repercussions of a complicated past, especially regarding colonization. A backlash he took in the form of an egg thrown in his direction during a trip to Luton, Bedfordshire, on Tuesday, December 6. It didn’t take long for British police to apprehend her attacker, a 20-year-old who had been “detained for questioning” on charges of “assault”. Charles III had already suffered a rain of eggs in November during his visit to the city center of York, in the north of England. “This country was built with the blood of slaves,” said the 23-year-old suspect, arrested by several police officers before being released on bail. Difficult to silence the colonialist past of the United Kingdom, a specter which still haunts the British crown as evidenced by the remarks deemed racist by a relative of Elizabeth II during a reception organized by Camilla at Buckingham Palace about the fight against violence against women. Charles III certainly does not sleep soundly…
