King Charles III was among the many to extend his heartiest wishes to Michelle Yeoh after her historic Oscar win. 

Marking the actress's win on the Commonwealth Day, the monarch took to Twitter to share a post with a caption that read: "Congratulations to Michelle Yeoh (and her family watching at home in Malaysia) on her historic Oscar win on #CommonwealthDay!"

For the unversed, Yeoh on Sunday became the the first Asian woman to win an Oscar for best actress for her role, as an an immigrant business owner that was thrust into a multiverse, in the sci-fi movie Everything Everywhere All at Once.

Yeoh, who was born in Ipoh in peninsular Malaysia, got her humble start in Hong Kong action films.

She rose to prominence on the international level after starring in the 1997 James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies and the Oscar-winning 2000 movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
