King Charles III shakes well-wishers hands in Northern Ireland
Video

As King Charles III prepares to ascend to the throne, old videos of him are reemerging online, reminding people of his funny personality.

One TikTok user posted a video of King Charles back in July, who was Prince Charles at the time, responding to a fan's inquiry about getting a beer during the Commonwealth Games.

As King Charles waves hello to fans during the opening of the Games, one asks "Charles will you go for a beer?"

To everyone's surprise, the future King responds, "where".

The crowd, and King Charles, erupt into laughter as he points his finger at the fan for the cheeky question.

"Fortunate enough to have met him twice and in private he’s so down to earth and funny," a commenter wrote.

"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”," another person said.

"I think Charles is a lot nicer and better sense of humour than he gets credit for. It’s a shame," a TikTok user wrote.

Other old videos of the future King of Britain have resurfaced, giving people a better idea of who King Charles' is. Like one of him dancing along to music when visiting Canada.
