The US has paid tribute to Britain’s new king with a online parody of the 1980s American sitcom Charles in Charge.
The ironic video features clips of King Charles III and other members of the royal family in the style of the show’s opening scene.
The credit ‘starring King Charles III’ appears, followed by laughing clips of Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and finally Prince George.
In the background plays the theme song Charles In Charge, performed by Shandi Sinnamon.
The 126-episode sitcom, starring Scott Baio, aired from 1984 to 1990, but is little known to British audiences. It followed the ups and downs of a young college student moving in with a family and babysitting their three children while their parents are at work.
Twitter reacted hilariously when images appeared online.
