King Charles III’s goddaughter has defended him after a video of him having a ‘temper tantrum’ went viral.

His Majesty was visiting Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland when he noticed he had written ’12th September’ instead of ’13th September’, before the pen then started leaking ink.

Frustrated, he exclaimed: “Oh, God, I hate. Can’t bear this bloody thing. Every stinking time.”

His goddaughter, India Hicks, defended Charles to Piers Morgan on TalkTV, saying: “I think he is someone who is grieving.

“He is exhausted. He has had to be on show publicly every minute of the day for the past five days.

“It’s an enormous thing to undertake. I think you’re allowed to have a bit of a temper tantrum when your pen leaks.”

Morgan agreed, replying: “I actually thought it was quite endearing. I’ve blown my stack at pens before.

“Especially when they leak all over your hands.”

Many people were quick to criticise the new monarch as the video went viral. But fans of the new king were quick to jump to his defence.

Former BBC newsreader Simon McCoy said: “The man has just lost his mother. He is under the sort of pressure few of us will ever experience. Cut him some slack. #TheKing.”

“His mum died literally five days ago and he’s having to go here there and everywhere signing things, cut the man some slack,” another user expressed on social media.

A third person said: “Shame on you! King Charles III just lost his beloved mother and has been travelling and going through countless duties to take over the reign and THIS is what you choose to post. What is wrong with you? The family is deep in grief.”

Since Queen Elizabeth died on September 8, he has embarked on a countrywide tour which has seen him visit ceremonies in Edinburgh and Belfast.

King Charles is to visit Cardiff on September 16, before Her Majesty’s funeral on Monday, September 19.
