Why did King Charles III actually make the gestures?

King Charles III of England, St. The act he made at the inauguration ceremony held at the James Palace was on the agenda. As the king was about to sit at the table prepared for him to sign some documents, he made a firm gesture with his hand to remove the inkwell from the table.

This gesture of the King was interpreted in different ways, and it was even claimed that he could not hold the pen because his hands were trembling.

However, the event was different, there was an irregularity, and Charles wanted an error to be corrected: The British, who were fond of protocol and did not make many mistakes in these matters, had somehow misplaced the inkwell set and the pen holder on the table…

The inkwell and pen holder are placed on the writing desk, not right in front of you, but directly opposite the side you are sitting on. You need to be clear in front of you to be able to write comfortably, and you reach the other end of the table and pick up the pens. But if the inkwell is right in front of you, you can’t find a place to put the file or paper in your hand and you have to push the inkwell to where it should be in order to make room.

The king did this too. The inkwell and pen holder were placed in the wrong place, right in front of Charles’ seat, and as the King was about to sit down, he saw that there was no place to sign the oversized papers on the table. Thereupon, he made the sign “Take these, put them somewhere else” with his hand and they put the inkwell in front of him further.

In other words, the gesture King Charles made at the head of the table was not a sign of discomfort, but merely saying, “Clear this table so I can easily sign what I have”…
