Boris Johnson has suffered a very awkward umbrella malfunction and definitely amused Prince Charles.

The Prime Minister was sat behind the Prince of Wales at the open-air ceremony, held at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, for the unveiling of a plaque on a monument dedicated to police officers and staff killed in the line of duty.

Footage showed Boris struggling to open the umbrella before he finally put it up and offered it to Home Secretary Priti Patel who politely declined the gesture.

However the umbrella suddenly closed above his head before turning inside out as the PM struggled to control it against the wind and rain.

The PM awkwardly attempted to close the brolly before Prince Charles, who was calmly holding his own umbrella, laughed as he watched the hilarious mishap unfold.

The cringe-worthy gaffe comes less than 24 hours after the PM was mocked for getting drenched despite holding a huge umbrella.

Meanwhile viewers took to social media to share their opinion on the hilarious umbrella misfortune.

One penned: "How lovely @BorisJohnson wanted to pass the umbrella to @pritipatel but when I did laugh when it got blown by the wind. Could only happen with Boris."

Another said: "Good old @BorisJohnson. Hopefully not too many were injured by his umbrella!"

The Prince of Wales spoke at the dedication of the new national Police memorial and a clip was shared to Twitter of his moving speech.

He said: "On behalf of the nation, I would particularly like to express my profound gratitude for the valour and sacrifice of those who have laid down their lives to keep us safe."
