King Charles III brushed off questions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix documentary Thursday when he appeared at an official engagement in London hours after the first three episodes debuted.

In a clip shared by SkyNews, an onlooker can be heard asking “Your Majesty, have you watched the documentary?” as the monarch arrived at the King’s House community hub Thursday morning.

King Charles is seen calmly ignoring the question, offering a wave to the crowd before entering the center, which is run by King’s Cross Church.

He spent the rest of the morning rubbing shoulders with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the bishop of London and the Coptic Orthodox Archbishop of London, as well as parishioners and volunteer groups.

King Charles appeared in good spirits throughout the visit, seemingly unfazed the fresh round of criticisms hurled at the royal family by his estranged son and daughter-in-law.

In a possible dig at his father and older brother, Prince William, Harry compared the former ‘Suits’ actress’ “’compassion’” and “’warmth’” to his late mother, Princess Diana.

“So much of what Meghan is and how she is, is so similar to my mom,” he told viewers.

“I was terrified of [Meghan] being driven away by the media,” he noted, remembering his mother’s death in the a 1997 car crash in Paris while escaping the paparazzi. 

Part two of the docu-series is set to drop on Dec. 15.

While Harry and Meghan continue to stoke the media firestorm, King Charles and the rest of the working royal family have forged ahead with their duties. The monarch is expected at an Advent Service at the Ethiopian Christian Fellowship Church later today.
