Yes folks, this is a real article.
Yes, this is a real investigation.
I know many of you don’t much care about the Royals, and neither do I.
But I saw something today that was so strange I had to share it with you, and it’s all about King Charles’ hands and feet — and why do they look like sausages?
Trending: U.S. Files Patent For LUCIFERASE
Not even sausages but “mini” sausages…
Please stick with me, because I’m very serious about this and you might agree once you see them.
Also, this is not something Photoshopped or fake — other news organizations are also exploring this strange phenomenon.
You may have seen these photos circulating around, but if not you are about to be shocked.
At least I was.
It’s actually kind of funny….everyone talking about how the Monarchy is in “good hands”.
They keep using the phrase “good hands”.
Which I guess led someone to actually zoom in on his hands, and well, see for yourself:
Newspapers and the BBC reporting on the Queen :
"In King Charles III, the monarchy is in safe, reliable pair of hands"

Yes folks, that’s a real photo and not altered.
The most common response is they look like mini sausages:

Now let’s dig into what’s actually going on here medically…
Because we’re not the only people talking about it.

Here’s what the Daily Star reported:
A doctor has weighed in after the internet exploded with speculation over King Charles III’s red and swollen fingers.
Dr Gareth Nye has spoken out on Charles’s hands following the death of the monarch’s mother Queen Elizabeth II.
Images of the new ruler’s hands have been circulating online since the Queen passed away yesterday (Thursday, September 8), aged 96 at her residence in Balmoral.
The Queen’s advanced age when she passed meant that her son and heir Charles was far from a young man when he ascended to the throne aged 73.
Taking to Twitter, user @Anaiishhh1said: “Have y’all ever seen Charles’s fingers”.
Meanwhile, @leahgaraas added: “A reminder that these are King Charles III’s fingers”.
Adding authority to the debate, Dr Gareth Nye, Senior Lecturer at the University of Chester, has spoken to the Daily Star to offer some expert advice on what the King’s swollen fingers could really say about his health.
He said that while “loads of conditions” could lead to swollen fingers, he said some were more likely than others.
One possibility was oedema, or fluid retention. Dr Nye said: “Oedema is a condition where the body starts to retain fluids in the limbs, normally the legs and ankles but also in the fingers which causes them to swell.
“Oedema is a common condition and mostly affects people over the age of 65 as the ability for fluid control is restricted,” he added.
“To see if this is the cause, pressing the swollen area for about 15 seconds would cause a depression in the area.”
Another condition Dr Nye said was a possibility was arthritis.
He said: “Arthritis- another common condition in the over 60s. It often affects three main areas in the hand – the thumb joint or either joints in the fingers.

Express.co also weighed in:
Pictures of the outing showed that Charles had painful-looking swelling in his feet, as well as hands.
The royal’s enlarged extremities could have been down to heat or due to the effects of a long-haul flight.
Inactivity and changes in atmospheric conditions while flying can result in swelling and water retention in some parts of the body.
After one long flight to Australia in 2012, Charles joked about having “sausage fingers” once he had landed.
Swelling in the arms or hands is caused by a build-up of fluid and can often subside on its own.
Known as oedema, the condition can be the result of staying in the same position for too long, eating too much salty food, being pregnant or taking certain medicines, according to the NHS.
Symptoms include swollen or puffy arms or hands and shiny, stretched skin.
Swelling can be eased in a whole host of ways, including lying down and using pillows to raise the swollen area, as well as moving and massaging affected areas of the body.
Exercising, drinking plenty of water and keeping arms or hands moisturised can also help.
So it looks like most experts are saying it’s oedema, and it doesn’t look good for him!
You can watch a live video of him from yesterday and judge for yourself:
A chorus of 'God save the King' breaks out as King Charles shakes hands with well-wishers outside Buckingham Palace.

Here is a portion of a message he gave yesterday:
King Charles: "I want to express my love for Harry and Meghan, as they continue to build their lives overseas".
