The GMB presenter recalled how she was unlucky enough to experience heavy downpour just before attending the event.

This caused Kate to appear smelling like a ‘wet dog’, causing her to feel sweaty and uncomfortable – akin to that of Monica during a Friends episode.

Good Morning Britain viewers were shown a photograph of Kate in a bright dress, smiling with the prince.

She exclaimed: “Do you know what? First of all, I smelled really bad.”

“As I go to shake Prince Charles’ hand, at that exact moment, there is a massive thunder clap. It was like electricity between us,” she explained.

Prince Charles jokingly responded with: “Do you have the power to control Zeus?”

As Kate confessed, her knowledge of classics was based on the Avengers series, and she thought Charles was referring to Thor.

Reverting to the thunderous moment when they shook hands, Kate explained all.

She said: “Charles is laughing at the thunderclap and probably wondering what smell there is at that moment.”

“Only you could come out with that. Hope your smelling better this morning.”

Another wrote: “Well I must admit I do like Kate and Ben they bring lightness to GMB!”
