British Prime Minister Boris Johnson offered a few laughs at an official engagement attended by Prince Charles on Wednesday, when he was seen struggling with an umbrella.

The incident left everyone around him chuckling. Johnson, himself, was seen laughing at his own plight after he finally managed to fixed it.
