The Prince of Wales turned weather presenter during a tour of BBC Scotland – where he was shown the news and weather studio by presenter Sally Magnusson. Prince Charles toured the Corporation’s Glasgow headquarters as the BBC marks its own Diamond anniversary of 60 years of television broadcasting in the country before being invited to read a specially-written weather bulletin with references to royal residences in Scotland. He said: ‘It’s an unsettled picture as we head towards the end of the week. This afternoon, it’ll be cold, wet and windy across most of Scotland. There’ll be snow for the higher ground of the Highlands and Aberdeenshire – the potential for a few flurries over Balmoral as the afternoon goes on.’ Afterwards, Charles quipped ‘thank God it isn’t a bank holiday’.
