Parsed x509 certificate giving partially decoded results

I have the following certificate:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

I have fed this into several sites that read x509 certificates, and they are able to parse it correctly.

I am trying to read the certificate in mbedtls with the following code:

mbedtls_x509_crt certificate;
mbedtls_x509_crt_init(&certificate);
        
char certificate_string[] = "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE--..."
            
int result_code = mbedtls_x509_crt_parse(&certificate, (unsigned char*)certificate_string, strlen(certificate_string) + 1);
        
if(result_code != 0) {
    char err_str[256];
    mbedtls_strerror(result_code, err_str, 256);
    printf("Could not read the certificate. Error: %s\n", err_str);
    return -1;
}

The following output is produced:

491231235959Z010�Uzon Web Services O=Amazon.com Inc. L=Seattle ST=Washington C=US0 *�H�� AWS IoT Certificate0�"0

Does anyone know why it comes out like this?

Solved: c - mbedtls cannot parse valid x509 certificate - Stack Overflow
