On Tuesday, King Charles vented his frustration at a leaky pen during a signing ceremony in Northern Ireland, the second time in recent days he has shown visible irritation during such proceedings. Shortly after, when signing a visitors’ book in front of cameras at Hillsborough Castle near Belfast, Charles reacted in frustration when a pen he was using leaked on his hand.
“Oh god I hate this (pen)!” Charles said, standing up and handing the pen to his wife and Queen Consort Camilla.
“Oh look, it’s going everywhere,” Camilla said as Charles wiped his fingers.
“I can’t bear this bloody thing… every stinking time,” Charles said as he walked away.
In another incident, when signing documents in London, an annoyed Charles gestured for aides to help when a pen holder on the table got in his way.
King Charles was proclaimed Britain’s new monarch in a historic ceremony of the Accession Council. He was joined by his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, and his son and heir Prince William – the new Prince of Wales.
