King Charles III of Great Britan made a joke about his "sausage-like fingers" in a documentary film about his coronation.
This amusing topic garnered intense media attention and became the subject of numerous memes on the internet over the years.
According to AFP, the joke was featured in a 90-minute documentary film that provides a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations made by the British royal family for his coronation.
