'Thank God it isn't a bank holiday!': Prince Charles reads weather for 'cold and brisk' day

10 MAY 2012

As the heir to the British throne, it's not exactly his official profession.

But Prince Charles showed a hidden talent during a tour of BBC Scotland’s headquarters when he read the weather forecast.

Newsreader Sally Magnusson stunned viewers when she handed the weather segment over to the royal who calmly proceeded to read his version of Reporting Scotland's lunchtime forecast.

Perfectly mimicking the hand gestures and enunciation of professional presenters Charles' piece to camera was almost flawless.

He even raised a few smiles when he wrapped up his piece with a well-timed joke, saying: "a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn't a bank holiday."

The Prince of Wales’s star turn came as he and the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to mark BBC Scotland's 60th anniversary.
