Prince Charles Keeps his Cool as Boris Johnson Struggles with Umbrella

Members of the royal family often have to stay calm when things don't go to plan, and Prince Charles demonstrated his ability to do exactly that on Wednesday.

The Prince of Wales joined Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel at the dedication of the UK Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

While the sombre event was treated with respect by everyone in attendance, the PM's difficulty with his umbrella provided a brief moment of levity for the Home Secretary and the Prince.

While sitting in the front row, Boris put up his umbrella and turned to speak to his colleague, who appeared to turn down his offer to share his brolly.

The umbrella then collapsed and Boris inadvertently turned it inside out, with Charles, whose own umbrella remained in place, turning to look and give him a wry smile.
