During his visit to France, King Charles III took the opportunity to meet with Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi yesterday.
He was accompanied by Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Presnel Kimpembe, representing the women’s and men’s sections of the club. The choice of the PSG player has raised eyebrows in England, where many expected to see Kylian Mbappé instead.
Indeed, The Sun reports that many believe KM7 snubbed King Charles III, who met “a very random PSG star” (referring to Kimpembe). The English tabloid has even published messages from English fans. “He’s the King of England, not just a random football fan,” one of them remarked. Another asked, “Where is Mbappé?” Then, another one stated, “I will tell my children that Mbappé, a great revolutionary, refused to meet a king.” Finally, an English fan made a joke about “the most improbable encounter in humanity” between Kimpembe and King Charles III.
