I would have taken it as jest from his Majesty, and answered something
along the lines of "Why, to wash dishes, of course!"

But something similar happened to me recently, as I was working in the
kitchen during court. The local Baron sent a messenger to the kitchen
(and the messenger happened to be one of those people who relishes
protocol, courts, and all the associated power and grandeur) to tell
us that our good Baron didn't wish anybody to be in the kitchen if
they'd rather be in Court, and that we should feel free to get out of
there for a few minutes to attend Court. We looked at each other, and
I remember answering something like "Thank you for the gracious
thought, but I'd rather stay here". The look on the messenger's face
was absolutely priceless!
