Susanna Reid charms Prince Charles at charity event

Susanna Reid turned her charms from her usual Good Morning Britain audience to royalty on Tuesday, when she had Prince Charles in giggles. The TV presenter was seen laughing heartily with the Prince as the pair chatted at the Step Up To Serve event at London's Wayra Academy.

Susanna, 44, was dressed to impress for the occasion in a bright red dress, matched with bold red nails and lips. The TV personality, known for her relaxed interviewing style, happily brought the royal up to speed when Charles admitted he didn't realise she had moved from the BBC to GMB.


Susanna Reid was dressed to impress when she met the Prince

The Prince of Wales had come to meet young people from organisations such as the Girl Guides, the Scouts and Model Westminster who are part of Step up to Serve's #iwill campaign, launched two years ago at Buckingham Palace.

Clarence House kept royals watchers in the loop, tweeting: "The Prince of Wales celebrated 2 years of the @iwill_campaign with @susannareid100, @dallaglio8 and 50 young ambassadors in London today."

The presenter was helping Charles promote youth volunteering

Charles said he was proud of the "deliberately ambitious" initiative to get 1.5 million 10 to 20-year-olds involved in volunteering, fundraising and campaigning by 2020.

"About 40 years ago, when I was allowed to speak in the House of Lords, I suggested a national community service. Then no one wanted to know, but it's more and more apparent there is a need," he said of his long-standing commitment to youth volunteering.

Speaking in a video message, Prime Minister David Cameron echoed this sentiment, saying volunteering helped develop "more confidence, self-esteem, resilience and character".

Last year Charles, as patron of charity Step Up To Serve, took part in his first Google+ Hangout to mark the charity's first anniversary. The project's aim is to make social action – such as volunteering, fundraising and campaigning – the norm for all 10 to 20 year olds in the UK.
