In a rather awkward moment going viral on social media, King Charles III was seen turning a bling eye to a woman’s request as he was out in west London.

The viral video showed a woman in London asking the 75-year-old monarch to call for a ceasefire in Gaza when Prince Harry and William’s father, as per reports, at the Ealing Christmas Market on Thursday.

“King Charles,” the woman identified as Noor, according to Anadolu Agency, shouted to get the British ruler’s attention.

“Sir, please call for a ceasefire,” she told Charles, as he tried to get near her to understand what she was saying. The king said, “Sorry”, as she signalled her to repeat what she was saying.

In response, the woman reiterated: “Please call for a ceasefire.”

The king, according to the video that’s been going viral, did not respond to her request. She then tried to get his attention multiple times, but King Charles refused to respond.

The Hamas-Israel war in Gaza has been going on for more than two months and the world community has shared some hard-hitting words, but Tel Aviv’s bombing of Gaza continues unabated.

In Israel’s response to the October 7 attack of Hamas, it has killed nearly 18,000 Gazans and wounded thousands more, crippled the health system, and aims to continue until the annihilation of the Palestinian group.
