Boring and uptight….. those are the words often associated with the British Royal family.
But this morning, Prince Charles gave the world a glimpse at his lighter side when he played weatherman on Scotland’s BBC.
The BBC.co.uk reports….
BBC newsreader Sally Magnusson handed over to Prince Charles, who read his version of Reporting Scotland’s lunchtime weather.
Against a backdrop of the BBC’s weather map, Prince Charles delivered a specially written script which included references to royal residences in Scotland.
Looking directly into the camera, he said: “The best of the bright and dry weather will of course be in the northern isles and the far north of the mainland. So, a little hazy sunshine for the Castle of Mey in Caithness.
“But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday.”
The duke and duchess spent more than an hour at BBC Scotland, which is celebrating 60 years in broadcasting.
