LONDON (AP) — If this king thing doesn't work out, Prince Charles may be able to fall back on a budding career as a weather man.

The heir to the British throne and his wife Camilla gave it a try Thursday, each reading out weather reports during a visit to BBC studios in Glasgow, Scotland.

The sight of the nattily dressed Charles giving a credible performance in the unfamiliar role caused many Britons to do a double-take as he read the lunchtime news weather spot.

Palace officials say Charles and Camilla were visiting the studios to mark the 60-year anniversary of BBC TV Scotland.
