LOL! See Prince Charles Read the Scottish Weather Report

Celebrity News May. 10, 2012 AT 7:40PM

The future King of England probably shouldn't quit his day job.

Scottish TV viewers tuning in for the lunchtime weather forecast Wednesday had the report read to them by a very special guest: Prince Charles himself, on a visit to the BBC Scotland studios in Glasgow.

The 63-year-old heir apparent--and father to Princes William and Harry--read from cue cards, adding his own commentary to the prepared script.

After informing viewers of "the potential for a few flurries over Balmoral [one of the Royal family's Scottish estates]," Charles looked off-camera, asking, "Who the hell wrote this script?"

Moving into the weekend, the royal announced that Scots everywhere would be dealing with a "cold day . . . with temperatures of just 8 Celsius and a brisk, northeasterly wind," adding cheekily, "Thank God it isn't a Bank Holiday."
