According to BBC News that day, Prince Charles turned himself into a weatherman for awhile and read a specially-written script about the weather for the day in Scotland, which he added some funny ad-libs to make it entertaining.

As noted in the report, Prince Charles, who is also known as the Duke of Rothesay, and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited BBC Scotland‘s headquarters in Glasgow, Pacific Quay, as part of their annual Holyrood Week.

“Well it’s an unsettled picture as we head towards the end of the week.” Prince Charles said on the first part of his weather news, who was introduced to the TV viewers by BBC news presenter Sally Magnusson as the ‘newest member of the weather team’.

“Ahh, this afternoon it will be cold, wet and windy across most of Scotland. The rain, of course, will be heaviest over the borders and, err, around Edinburgh, where it could lead to difficult conditions on the roads.” Prince Charles added.

“There will be snow for the higher ground of the Highlands and Aberdeenshire. There will be the potential for a few flurries over Balmoral…” The 63-year old prince continued, but suddenly stopped and asked, “Who the hell wrote this script?” that brought laughter inside the news room.

“But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday.” Prince Charles said on the last part, with the royal couple reportedly spent over an hour at BBC Scotland, which is now celebrating 60 years of television broadcasting.
