Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall showed off their ballroom dancing skills yesterday at Christchurch, New Zealand. They were visiting Christchurch to meet survivors of last year’s earthquake.
It all started when the Duchess accepted an invitation from university student Sam Johnson to dance to the sounds of 1940s swing jazz music.
After a few whirls she told the Prince, “Come on darling, you’ve got to dance too.”
But it’s only after psychology student Lisa Shannon asked him to dance, that Prince Charles bust some moves as the crowds watched on.
Shannon said: “If you don’t ask you don’t get, I just saw him standing there looking a bit lonely and I thought I’d ask him to dance.
He led and I followed and I don’t usually follow, but he was definitely in charge.”
The royal couple were visiting New Zealand as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour.
