In the viral video, His Majesty can be seen driving his own vehicle and rolling down the window to interact with the public.

One woman seized this unique opportunity to express her grievances, saying, “It’s terrible; our roads are terrible, and we even have flooding, Your Majesty.”

Upon hearing her complaints, The King responded, “The roads, you say?” and subsequently instructed his accompanying officials to make a note of the issue.

The video has since gone viral, and netizens are lauding the woman for her audacity to directly address a problem to the King, something traditionally reserved for interactions with local MPs or ministers.
