King Charles III appeared to bring his own pen to a Welsh cathedral today just days after being left furious by a string of ink mishaps during his visit to Northern Ireland earlier this week.

The Monarch and the Queen Consort arrived in Wales today in their first visit since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Royal couple made their way to Llandaff Cathedral to attend a prayer and reflection service for his late mother and Britain’s longest serving head of state.

Today the King was filmed calmly signing the paper in the cathedral before passing his pen and the book to his wife.

Both of them were in Wales in their final stop during their tour of the four nations of the United Kingdom.

Hundreds of royalists and tourists went down to the cathedral to see the new King and Queen Consort.

One Twitter user said: ‘Pleased to see that King Charles now appears to be using his own fountain pen with completely satisfactory results.’

Another added: ‘Charles brought his own pen to Wales. Obviously learning fast…’

And one more user wrote: ‘I love how King Charles III brought his own pen this time after ‘leaking pen incident’ in [Northern] Ireland. Bless him.’

The King’s decision to carry his own fountain pen comes days after a few drops on ink soured the mood at Hillsborough Castle, Belfast, earlier this week.

His Majesty appeared flustered by dripping ink as he tried to sign a book towards the end of his visit.

Charles complained about the pen he was using to sign his name, announcing he ‘can’t bear this bloody thing’ as he appeared to furiously rub the ink from his fingers.

The Queen Consort later suggested it was leaking and asked for a replacement, as the King briskly turned on his heels and left the room flanked by aides.

A local corgi, famously his late mother’s favorite breed of dog, was even seen snuggling up to King Charles as he shook hands with well-wishers, before he received a 21-gun salute as they entered the grounds of Hillsborough Castle – the province’s official residence of the reigning monarch and members of the Royal Family.

It comes days after viewers of Charles’ historic accession to the throne found themselves distracted when the new monarch suddenly gestured furiously to one of his aides to remove a pot of ink.

As he went to sign the historic Proclamation, the King frantically moved to an aide to move a pen box from his desk, which viewers described as ‘far too small’ for the huge document and stationery.

Despite the gravity of the moment, viewers could not help but find the apparent difficulty the King had with the pen amusing.

Charles asked a nearby aide to get the box off the table so he could sign the second part of the large document.

The fountain pen set he used to sign the momentous document was a gift from his sons Princes Harry and William.

Some viewers joked the new King ‘stole’ the pen after spotting him put it in his pocket before taking it out again.
