With Queen Elizabeth II's passing on September 8, all eyes have been on the new monarch, King Charles III.
With great power comes great responsibility...and scrutiny.
Twitter users already shared their disappointment when a video surfaced of the King shooing staff to clear space on his desk.
Now, a new video is circulating online, and many are voicing their disapproval.
In the video, King Charles III realized his pen had leaked all over his hands and he was signing documents.
The King, clearly frustrated, could be heard saying:
"Oh god I hate this."
"I can't bear this bloody thing!"
"What they do, every stinking time."
Many news and media outlets have shared the video on Twitter.

Some commenters believed the King's reaction was justified, as he was surely overwhelmed by the events of the last week.
\u201c@dorelieart @CBSNews @qsteph I think he is totally exhausted and grieving. I don't usually excuse such behavior but when I opened an inkjet printer package recently and the ink leaked over me, paper, printer, clothes I was just as unamused and I was not tired, nor had I just lost my mother, and become CIII.\u201d— CBS News (@CBS News) 1663086614
\u201c@CBSNews I hope people don\u2019t forget his mum died days ago. The most extreme pressure imaginable.\u201d— CBS News (@CBS News) 1663086614
\u201c@CBSNews @ChristinsQueens He's not even aware of the date and clearly flustered. It's been a hell of a few days.\u201d— CBS News (@CBS News) 1663086614
\u201c@CBSNews Give him a break. He's 73 years old, how much sleep do you think he's had, how much travel, in the last few days?\nAs he mourns his mother?\n\n'Even royalty'. His mother passed away only days ago.\u201d— CBS News (@CBS News) 1663086614
\u201c@CBSNews Wow, \u201ccool\u201d story. Yeah, a man who lost his beloved mother and has had to imm deal w press and show his face to the world and handle several official proceedings\u2026 was irritated by a fountain pen.\u201d— CBS News (@CBS News) 1663086614
Others, however, believed the overreaction was unwarranted and reflected poorly on the new King.
\u201c@ABC That\u2019s what y\u2019all wanted right? A king like that?? Yikes \ud83d\ude2c well you got what you asked for\u201d— ABC News (@ABC News) 1663097165
\u201c@ABC He is awful. A life of privilege shows in his every action.\u201d— ABC News (@ABC News) 1663097165
\u201c@ABC It appears he\u2019s easily annoyed by the simplest of things. Lord help the people who wait on him hand and feet daily. I bet they get it really really bad. He\u2019s really just a spoiled man child.\u201d— ABC News (@ABC News) 1663097165
\u201c@ABC He hasn\u2019t even been coronated yet and he\u2019s this irritated about the whole thing. It\u2019s going to be a very delicious reign.\u201d— ABC News (@ABC News) 1663097165
Twitter user @wyntermitchell posted the video with a stream of her own responses.
"All he has to do is wake up, wave, sign something and he gets his knickers in a twist. THIS YOUR KING?"

It's no secret that King Charles has endured a lot over the last week but, since he is the new monarch, people are definitely watching him more closely than ever.
