Prince Charles Shines In TV Weather Forecast
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have become weather presenters during a tour of a TV station in Scotland.
Charles and Camilla, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, toured the BBC's Glasgow headquarters as the organisation marks 60 years of television broadcasting in the country.
They were shown the news studio by presenter Sally Magnusson and introduced to the weather team.
Charles was then invited to read a specially written weather bulletin, with references to royal residences in Scotland.
He said: "It's an unsettled picture as we head towards the end of the week.
"This afternoon, it'll be cold, wet and windy across most of Scotland.
"There'll be snow for the higher ground of the Highlands and Aberdeenshire - the potential for a few flurries over Balmoral as the afternoon goes on."
"Who the hell wrote this script?" the prince joked.
After reading about the poor weather, Charles finished by saying: "Thank God, it isn't a bank holiday."
Camilla then read the same forecast in the studio.
Weatherman Stav Danaos said he thought he might have a new rival for his job.
He added: "They did a great job and were consummate professionals.
"The prince even ended with his own pay-off line, which is always good."
