King Charles held the ball, which is, in fact, an “orb.” Apparently, it symbolizes all the Christian influence over the original three continents known “in medieval” times. Meanwhile, the wand is actually a “scepter,” It “represents the sovereign’s spiritual role, with the dove symbolizing the Holy Ghost. Traditionally it has been known as ‘the Rod of Equity and Mercy.” After the serious business, people started to drag the appearance of the new monarch. 

Margarine Commercial

Looking at the photo of King Charles made u/lawl7980 say, “I can’t help it. This just reminds me of a margarine commercial.” That got some upvotes. 

Next, v/visions-of-skater joked, “Looks like a cosplay its not for him.”

More followed, and u/houndshmix said, “…My first thought was how strange he looks in the Queen’s stuff!”

Not everyone totally dragged the new monarch. u/DamienSpecterII said, “He looks so old and tired.” However, the comment continued with, “If he wasn’t such a pampered, pompous *ss, I could almost feel sorry for him.”

These comments might sound a bit nasty but they do highlight that people lost their awe of kings and queens in more modern times.
