King Charles in pen ‘leaking pen’ incident at Hillsborough Castle

King Charles III told aides: “I can’t take this damn thing” after a pen he was using appeared to have leaked.

The King was at the royal residence of Hillsborough Castle in Co Down in Northern Ireland when the pen appeared to be dripping ink as he attempted to sign a book.

It came after another pen-related incident on Saturday, when the new monarch was seen having an ornate holder taken away by an aide while signing a document during his first privy council.

It was later returned to its place after privy councilors used its pens to sign documents, but the king took offense at the item again when asked to sign, pulling a face before removing it again.

On Tuesday, the King visited Northern Ireland on the final leg of his royal tour of the four nations following the death of his mother, the Queen.

As he sat down to sign the guest book at the castle at the end of the visit, the king could be heard in a video clip asking for the date before standing up in frustration.

The Queen Consort, who was handed the pen, said: “It goes everywhere,” before the couple wiped their hands.

Then the king was heard saying, “I can’t take this damn thing…every smelly time.”

He was then taken away by helpers.

The incident prompted comments on social media, with users highlighting the other pen-related moment involving the new king. King Charles in pen ‘leaking pen’ incident at Hillsborough Castle
