Meeting royalty is a massive thing, so you can certainly see why a lot of people get nervous after meeting someone so famous and prestigious.

However, meeting King Charles III is well and truly a different ball game, as Blackpink's Jennie Kim now knows all too well.

Kim certainly dressed up for the occasion as she wore a black Chanel dress and a matching blazer as she posed for snaps outside Buckingham Palace after receiving her award.

Just a day beforehand, she dressed to impress once more as she attended the South Korea-UK State Banquet at the same venue.

Jennie was joined by band members Roseanne Park, Jisoo Kim and Lalisa Manoban for the special royal occasion as the whole band received the MBE award.

In the UK, an MBE is awarded to people for their rewarding contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organizations and public service, which is outside the country's civil service.

Each member of Blackpink were awarded the MBE in recognition of their role as advocates for the COP26 Summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

Jennie was evidently thrilled with her honorary award, penning on Instagram: "A huge honour to receive the Honorary MBEs and attend the South Korea-UK State Banquet at the Buckingham Palace."

Fans couldn't help but laugh at the awkward response she gave to King Charles III after she received the medal, something that has since gone viral online.

The singer awkwardly hesitated for a few seconds before replying the she would wear the MBE in 'her house'.

Jennie was smiling often throughout the award ceremony, though there were notably a few moments where she looked full of dread and worry.

Such facial expressions have caused a few laughs online, as many comment on a viral video doing the rounds on X, formally known as Twitter.

"I love how no matter how big Jennie gets or how many years has gone by, she still has the exact same mannerisms when she’s nervous or anxious," one person penned.

While a second joked: She got one glimpse of them sausage fingers are was traumatised for life."

While a third simply added: "Jennie is so funny," followed by an all too accurate crying laughing face.
