However, fans were quick to notice that Kylian Mbappe had not been present at the event, with some speculating he had snubbed the opportunity.
One fan reacted by tweeting: “He’s the King of England, eh, not a random football fan.”
Another asked: “Where is Mbappe?”
A third fan also added: “I will tell my children that Mbappe, a great revolutionary, refused to meet a king.”
Meanwhile, one more acknowledged Kimpembe’s presence as they joked: “Humanity’s most improbable encounter.”
World Cup winner Kimpembe has yet to play for the French champions this season as he continues his recovery from injury.
The defender has been sidelined with a ruptured Achilles since last November, an issue which ruled him out of the World Cup.
As for Mbappe, the forward is currently preparing this weekend’s Le Classique between PSG and Marseille at the Parc des Princes.
Alongside Kimpembe, PSG women’s star Katoto also met King Charles.
Another product of the club’s youth system, the 24-year-old striker has been capped by France 32 times.
