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

The Prince and Duchess of Cornwall, were visiting the broadcaster as a part of their annual Holyrood Week.

The prince delivered a specially written script which included references to royal residences in Scotland.

For example:

"There will be snow for the higher grounds of the highlands and Aberdeenshire. The potential for a few flurries over Balmoral."

At one point he joked: "Who the hell wrote this script?!"

ITV News' Royal Correspondent Tim Ewart reports.

Prince Charles ended his forecast by saying:

"But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn't a bank holiday."

The Royal weather forecast featured on the BBC One O'Clock News, and shortly after Prince Charles was trending on Twitter.

Here are some of the tweets:

Prince Charles is not the first Royal to get a lesson in weather forecast presentation.

In 2010, the Queen was given a demonstration by UTV's Frank Mitchell, who explained how green screen technology works.
