King Charles is poking fun at an incident that occurred a few weeks ago when he burst open a pen.

On Monday, during Charles’ first public engagement with Camilla, the queen consort, he quietly joked about how unpredictable pens can be while signing a visitor’s book at a council meeting in Dunfermline, Scotland.

In video footage, shared by Daily Mail London’s royal editor Rebecca English, Charles is seen signing the book before he hands his wife the pen.

“These things are so temperamental,” he says with a subtle laugh.

The king’s remark follows a mishap he had with the writing tool on Sept. 13, a few days after he acceded the throne following his mother Queen Elizabeth’s passing on Sept. 8.

During that signing ceremony, Charles had an unfortunate experience with a leaky pen after the “bloody thing” got ink onto his hands. The clip of the humorous moment quickly went viral.
