King Charles III managed to make light of a frustrating moment from earlier in the week when he was gifted a pen by a well-wisher in Cardiff.

The new monarch vented his frustration at a leaky pen on Tuesday (September 13) during a signing ceremony in Northern Ireland.

In a light-hearted response to the incident on Friday, a woman handed the King a pen “Just in case” he needed one.

Charles appeared amused at the gesture, laughing as he continued to shake hands with people in the crowd.
