King Charles III while speaking to some people at Lambeth Bridge in London recognized a Fijian amongst the thousands queueing to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lying-in-state at the Westminster Hall.

As the King was making his way down the line shaking hands and thanking people he stopped and asked a man if he is from Fiji to which the man smiled widely and nodded his head.

King Charles is then seen having a short conversation with the man.

Another video has been making the rounds on social media showing a Fijian with his two children doing the ‘va-cobocobo’ in front of the Queen’s coffin at the Westminster Hall .

He sat down in front of the Queen’s coffin and clapped his hands three times as a sign of respect.

Fijian, Peni Vuiyale who is a member of the Royal Regiment of Scotland was one of the pallbearers during the Queen’s funeral procession last week.

The Queen’s funeral is at 10pm tomorrow.
