UK: Prince of 'Gales' debuts as weather forecaster

Low heir pressure, and reign predicted over Scotland.

Prince Charles, the heir apparent to the British Crown made headlines around the world for taking a go at BBC headquarters in Scotland as a weather forecaster. Joining was his wife, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, who was also featured as a forecast talking head.

The royal couple read from prepared scripts, while Charles the Prince of Wales, seemed to show more confidence in front of the cameras. At the end of his segment, Charles went off script after describing forthcoming wet weather in Scotland by saying "Thank God it isn't a bank holiday."

Several papers dubbed Charles the Prince of Gales and there were jests and gibes about reign and heir pressure. Meanwhile, Charles' grandson Harry was enjoying fair weather in Washington DC after receiving a prize for his humanitarian work from the Atlantic Council.
