An American woman has been ridiculed online after answering trivia questions about British history when asked by her boyfriend.
Posting the funny incident on his TikTok account, Luke Tandy asked his partner seven questions in the shortenwhich has been viewed more than 100,000 times.
Starting the quiz, Luke started with what could be considered an easy question: “Who is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom?”
Surprisingly, his girlfriend had no idea and responded: “King Charles, King Williams, Prince Williams.” Not only did she manage to confuse Prime Minister Rishi Sunak with members of the royal family, but she also stumbled across the name of the Prince of Wales.

Next, Luke asked a slightly more complicated question: “What countries make up Great Britain?”
In response, his partner guessed correctly England, Wales and Scotland, and correctly omitted Northern Ireland, which is not part of Great Britain, but actually just part of the United Kingdom.
He managed to get two right in a row, correctly answering that the pound sterling is the currency of the United Kingdom, before stating that London is the capital of England.
His streak of correct answers came to an end when he was asked to guess the time zone used in the United Kingdom (which is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in winter and British Summer Time (BST) in summer), comically guessing the cities of Bristol and Newcastle responded instead.
She was also taken aback by her partner’s next question: “Which British chocolatier created the Creme Egg?”
Thinking it was referring to a person rather than a brand, he hazarded a guess “Sir Edward Charles.”
The first filled chocolate egg was created by the Cadbury brothers, John and Benjamin, but the one in its current form was manufactured by Fry’s in 1961, before Cadbury manufactured it from 1973.
Luke completed the video with a ‘true or false’ category, asking if the following cities are in the UK: London, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Marbella.

She got them all right, apart from stumbling upon Nottingham, which she claimed was not in the UK, while she believed Cairo, the capital of Egypt, was a British city.
Reacting to the video, other users were incredulous at some of his responses.
One wrote: “Not knowing who the Prime Minister is is acceptable, but thinking he is the King is absurd.”
Another scoffed: “Imagine thinking Cairo is in England.”
A third joked: “To be fair to her, we’ve changed Prime Ministers a lot lately.”
A fourth commented: ‘Fry created the cream egg even though it’s now made by Cadbury!’
