- The South African social media user Mr Smeg (real name Michael Bucwa) has offered to comfort the Royal Family through a hug
- Michael caught the attention of Mzansi social media users as he in his usual style offered a shoulder to cry on, this time to the UK's royals following the passing of Prince Philip
- Mr Smeg has left many of his followers wondering how his offer could possibly make a difference to anyone so far away in the United Kingdom
A South African social media user, @Mr Smeg, has also offered a shoulder to cry to the Royal Family following the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
Real name Michael Bucwa, the man is famous for offering a warm hug or a shoulder to cry on to those who are going through tough times.
Mr Smeg's latest post on Twitter has attracted the attention of fellow South Africans but some believe he has taken it too far in offering to lend a shoulder to a family as far away as the United Kingdom.
Based in Tshwane, the account holder dropped a post captioned: "RIP Prince Philip. To the Royal family and Queen Elizabeth, I’m here if you need a shoulder to cry on."
“Mr Smeg is going international now.”
“Ahh you already arrived in Buckingham Palace.”
“They might need a kettle for tea and so on and so forth.”
Briefly News reported that the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, has died at the age of 99. He had been the Queen's partner and source of strength for 73 years.
Philip had been in and out of the hospital with health complications and his health was reported to have been deteriorating for a period of time.
He also took a hiatus from public functions despite his gregarious and ever-stable nature. The Duke of Edinburgh was a favourite among his people and was well-respected for serving his Queen and country with dignity and wisdom.
In the UK, flags on public and landmark buildings have been lowered to half-mast as a sign of honour and respect to the fallen royal leader.
