Prince Charles break-dancing video shows new side to the Royal - see video
Prince Charles, who is often portrayed as being rather straight-laced, reveals his break-dancing skills in an archive video from the 1980s.
In the clip, the Royal is seen busting some moves with some teenagers after they pull him to the dance floor. His skills might come in use at the reception of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, set to be watch worldwide by a record audience on April 29.
Charles revealed some of his quirks in a BBC documentary in September, admitting that he sometimes eavesdrops the conversations of tourists who tour his royal estate in Gloucestershire and that he talks to the trees and plants in his garden. The prince, however, is well-aware of his reputation.
"I got a lot of flak for a lot of things," Charles said in the documentary. "I mean, potty this, potty that, loony this, loony that."
Prince Charles was married to Diana Spencer from 1981 until 1996 and had two sons, Prince William of Wales and Prince Harry of Wales.
"He's portrayed as being a rather cold and distant father," Colleen Harris, press secretary to Charles, William and Prince Harry from 1998 to 2003 told ABC News in March. "That's not the person I saw when I worked there. I saw them together. It was a very loving and gently amusing relationship."
Earlier in the month, the 62-year-old prince achieved a milestone for spending the longest times as the heir apparent to the British throne, an honor which was previously held by King Edward VII, the son of Queen Victoria, who waited 59 years, two months and 13 days. Charles had been waiting 59 years, two months and 14 days as his mother, Queen Elizabeth, succeeded her father King George VI in June 1953. Elizabeth is set to celebrate her 85th birthday on Thursday.
It was recently announced that Prince Charles will be heading to the United States to meet President Barack Obama after the royal wedding, according to Reuters. Prince Charles jets out for a two-day trip on May 3 and is set to give a speech at Georgetown University in Washington.
