As King Charles III steps up to the British throne after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II, the heir appeared frustrated with a leaky pen while carrying out his royal duties. 

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

“Oh God, I hate this,” the royal monarch angrily remarked after using the dysfunctional pen.

In the video, King Charles III realizes the pen was not working properly, then storms out of his seat and reaches into his pocket for a handkerchief to clean the ink from his hands.

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

“I can’t bear this bloody thing,” King Charles III said as he lost his temper.
