The moment King Charles surprised BBC viewers by appearing as weather presenter – My London

As the leading member of the Royal Family, there is no denying that King Charles is one of the most recognised faces on British television. So, it came as no shock when he appeared suddenly on BBC Scotland to surprise viewers.

Presenting a special weather report, the monarch was touring BBC Scotland’s headquarters at Pacific Quay, Glasgow. Charles is also The Duke of Rothesay and was there to celebrate 60 years of BBC Scotland television.

BBC presenter Sally Magnusson introduced Charles by saying: “I am delighted to say we have a new member of our weather team tonight. Let me hand over to him now. Your Highness.”

Charles begins his report with: “Well, it’s an unsettled picture as we head towards the end of the week. This afternoon it’ll be cold, wet and windy across most of Scotland.

“We are under the influence of low pressure and this weather front pushing north, bringing cloud and outbreaks of rain. The rain of course will be heaviest over the borders and around Edinburgh, which could lead to difficult conditions on the roads.

“In the west, rain will be lighter and patchier – maybe a few drier interludes over Dumfries. There will be snow over the higher ground at the Highlands and Aberdeen – with the potential with a few flurries over Balmoral.”

Charles and the rest of the BBC presenters laugh as he adds: “Who the hell wrote this script?” The special weather report took place in May 2012.

Many people flocked to the comments section to react to Charles surprise cameo. One person said: “magine, you wake up first thing in the morning, and you’re a bit tired. Then you turn the telly on to check the weather, only to see Prince Charles!”

A second chimed in: “Always been a fan of old Charlie boy but this is just priceless. Surely he should be doing stand-up comedy with that very quick humour that he has. A veritable champion of poker-faced wit.”

A third person said: “How wonderful. He’s so relaxed and fluent. He didn’t panic, stutter or lose control. Just so chilled.”
