Britain’s Prince Charles on Tuesday delivered the Queen’s Speech for the first time after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, began suffering from what officials called ”episodic mobility problems.”

One key moment struck a sour note with many observers.

The speech, which marks the formal opening of Parliament, is written by government officials. In it, Charles said the administration would work to “help ease the cost of living for families” amid economic uncertainties.

The comments struck critics as more than a little odd given the setting. Charles, who was decked out in full royal accoutrement, gave the speech while sitting on a gilded throne in a bejeweled setting at the House of Lords:

Needless to say, the comments and the setting did not go unnoticed on social media:

Man sits on a Golden throne while talking about the cost-of-living is so outrageously beyond parody i’m not sure even the Onion could add anything further to it. https://t.co/DF0IWYCkod

The next time Biden gives a speech about reducing cost of living expenses, I want him stepping out of a life-sized Klimt painting diorama wrapped in a golden robe studded with rubies and emeralds. “My fellow Americans,” he begins, rubies jingling, “these diaper prices amirite?”

I will never understand how in the 21st century we still have kings and queens

Actual living royalty who’s abundance of wealth is provided by working class tax payers, who will then go on TV upon a golden throne to say how they will help poor people

This is absolutely mental https://t.co/ZxqsDepOWf
