    Prince Charles had a go at reading the weather during a tour of BBC Scotland's Pacific Quay headquarters.

    He and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited the broadcaster as a part of their annual Holyrood Week.

    BBC newsreader Sally Magnusson handed over to Prince Charles, who read his version of Reporting Scotland's lunchtime weather.

    The prince, also known as the Duke of Rothesay, had earlier met students at the City of Glasgow College.

    Against a backdrop of the BBC's weather map, Prince Charles delivered a specially written script which included 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."

    The duke and duchess spent more than an hour at BBC Scotland, which is celebrating 60 years of television broadcasting.

    At least he has a good sense of humour

    Hopefully Prince Philip will have a go soon, and the script will have some casual racism in it.

    Who wrote this script, an Indian?

    I completely disregarded her in the OP, not because she fucked up, but because it's Camilla

    Sounded great until

    Would have been much more awesome if he'd ad-libbed it.

    I like how quickly the guy got off his laugh at the end.
