King Charles loses patience over leaking pen: video

King Charles III showed another flash of anger at… well, another pen.

The new monarch, who had just received a warm welcome from the crowd in Belfast, was visiting the royal residence of Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland on Tuesday when his last snafu took place.

In an instantly viral video, Charles, 73, admitted to writing the wrong date — September 12 instead of the 13th — before passing the pen to his wife, Queen Consort Camilla.

When he handed over the offending writing instrument, the king realized it was leaking.

“Oh, God, I hate…” he began before Camilla, 75, interrupted to note that the ink “went everywhere.”

Another pen was quickly brought to Camilla, who calmly signed the book as her husband raged in the background.

“I can’t stand this damn thing,” he roared, furiously wiping away black ink with a handkerchief. “Every stinking time.”

Just three days earlier, Charles was filmed gesturing angrily to have royal aides clear the desk where he was about to sign the Proclamation of Accession, which officially made him the monarch of the UK and Commonwealth after his mother’s death. Queen Elizabeth II.

The items he wanted removed included a pencil case and an inkwell, both of which were said to have been gifts from his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
