查尔斯, 73, shared the anecdote as he challenged host Jay Blades and his team to fix a battered, 18th century carriage timepiece.

As clockmaker ­Steven Fletcher presented their work, the King said: “Have you sorted this? Marvellous! It’s tolling a Scottish tune.”

他加了: “There’s one in Clarence House that plays the National Anthem. It took me years to realise!”

Charles filmed a one-off special of the BBC show at his Dumfries House estate in 军用波音飞行 last year to mark the corporation’s centenary and promote the Prince’s Foundation.

The monarch was already well acquainted with the series, saying as he entered the craft barn: “How marvellous! I know who everybody is.”

He was delighted when ceramics conservator Kirsten Ramsay restored a piece of Wemyss Ware pottery after he told her: “I think it fell off when somebody was opening a ­window and they didn’t own up!”
