When King Charles III ascended the British throne following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, the heir appeared frustrated by a leaking pen while performing his royal duties.

While visiting the royal residence of Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland on Tuesday, King Charles III lost his temper over a leaked pen while signing a book.

“Oh my God, I hate it,” remarked the royal emperor angrily after using the useless pen.

In the video, King Charles III learns that the pen is not working properly, then storms from his seat and reaches into his pocket for a handkerchief to wipe the ink from his hands.

Staff rushed to help the royal couple, as Camilla reached for another pen to continue signing the book.

“I cannot bear this bloody thing,” said King Charles III, losing his temper.
