in 1974, Charles told them, "If I hear rhythmic music, I just want to get up and dance."



They asked him if this remained the same, now aged 64 and he joked, "Perhaps, it's slightly less becoming once you get to my age.""I think given half a chance though, the old one-two and the two-step can come in handy. I'm glad to say that both my sons have inherited it, I think," he added."They're very good. They do make me laugh when they get going."Most recently, Charles was seen strutting his stuff while on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour in New Zealand last winter. The heir to the throne delighted a local lady by flinging her around the dancefloor to the sound of rock n roll.


Prince Harry, who is no stranger to some of London's most glamorous nightspots, got his groove on while visiting his charity project in Lesotho, Africa earlier this year.

When asked if he was passing on his wisdom to the duo he replied, "Well, I don't know. I hope so. How do you know? You can try, but no, I've always believed I just do what I do and I hope that they might notice something.""I mean, funnily enough, I don't see what they're up to when I'm not there, but sometimes I hear back from others that they're surprisingly similar in some ways (to me). So maybe some things rub off ... which they wouldn't want me to know."
