Prince Charles had a go at reading the weather during a tour of BBC Scotland’s headquarters.
It happened as the Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Pacific Quay, outside Glasgow, for Holyrood Week.
BBC newsreader Sally Magnusson handed over to Prince Charles who delivered a specially written script including references to royal residences in Scotland.
Looking directly into the camera, he said: “The best of the bright and dry weather will of course be in the northern isles and the far north of the mainland. So, a little hazy sunshine for the Castle of Mey in Caithness.
“But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday.”
