Weatherman Charles copes with low pressure

If this king thing doesn't work out, Prince Charles may be able to fall back on a budding career as a weather man.

The heir to the British throne and his wife Camilla gave it a try yesterday, each reading out weather reports during a visit to BBC Scotland studios in Glasgow

The sight of Charles presenting the weather caused many viewers to do a double-take.

The royals were visiting the studios to mark the 60-year anniversary of BBC Scotland.

Newsreader Sally Magnusson handed over to the prince, whose script on Reporting Scotland's lunchtime weather included references to Balmoral, one of the royal residences.

Camilla was quite clipped but Charles managed to be very funny as he delivered the forecast.

"There will be snow for the higher grounds of the highlands and Aberdeenshire. The potential for a few flurries over Balmoral -- who the hell wrote this script?" he exclaimed

"But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk, northerly wind.

"Thank God it isn't a bank holiday!" he joked.
