Visiting Northern Ireland this Tuesday, September 13 as part of his reconnaissance tour of the nations of the United Kingdom and accompanied by Queen Consort, Camillia, Charles III met there with political leaders and… a pen problem.

As he was preparing to sign a guestbook, the new sovereign first made a mistake in today’s date. “I just have to put… Is it September 12?” » he asks one of the councilors around him. “The 13th, sir” one of them answers. The pen then acted up by starting to flow. What had the gift of annoying the new King: “Oh my god, I hate this” he says before getting up. His wife takes her fingers and lets go: “Oh look, it’s going everywhere”.

As the people around him rush to fix the pen problem, Charles gets upset: “I can’t stand this damn thing. That’s what they do every time.”, he says before leaving the room. It is finally his wife who takes care of signing the document, with… another pen.
