The royals took on a weather report recently and gave the full-time news reporters a run for their money.
Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited Scotland recently and did a lot more than shake hands with dignitaries. Following a visit to a local college, the two tried their hand at being weather reporters.
The couple visited the BBC Scotland Pacific Quay headquarters during their week-long tour of Scotland. According to The Associated Press, Palace officials said Charles and Camilla were visiting the studios to mark the 60-year anniversary of BBC TV Scotland.
During the surprise appearance at the studio, the two took their places in front of a green screen to read for the lunchtime weather report.
Charles set up, and began calmly reporting. “The best of the bright and dry weather will of course be in the northern isles and the far north of the mainland,” said Prince Charles confidently.
The most exciting part of the report was that it was altered to include references to royal castles. Prince Charles reported, “So, a little hazy sunshine for the Castle of Mey in Caithness” during one point and later went on to reveal, “But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday.”
Following Prince Charles’ weather report, it was the Duchess of Cornwall’s turn. She took her place and reported another weather segment.
The entertaining royal weather report made headlines across the globe and a video of it later went viral collecting thousands of views since first being posted. Check it out.
