King Charles has been caught on camera getting cross with a pen after it appears to leak on the monarch.

The footage emerges following news that many of the King's staff at Clarence House may have been given a redundancy notice as he prepares to make the move to Buckingham Palace.
People on Twitter have been quick to defend the monarch though, reminding others that not only has just lost his mother but has been working hard ever since.
