Prince Charles says his sons have inherited his dance moves

The Prince of Wales shared some candid, fatherly musings recently to Australian Women’s Weekly. Prince Charles was in exceedingly good spirits as he spoke to deputy editor, Juliet Rieden, joking about his moves on the dance-floor and the possibility that his two sons may have inherited his talent.


The interview was given after The Prince’s trip to Australia with his wife, The Duchess of Cornwall.  The couple received a warm and enthusiastic welcome in Australia.  The Prince was especially pleased that Camilla had been so well received in the country and recognized by its people as, “an incredibly good sort.”

The Duke of Cambridge was often photographed dancing with his wife during their courtship and university days.  Now married, he has been seen enjoying dancing with The Duchess of Cambridge at charity events and also on their royal visit to Tuvalu.  Prince Harry was photographed dancing during his official tour to the Caribbean. The images of him dancing in Jamaica were popular around the world.  Prince Charles speculated that those moves may be in the DNA,  “…the old one-two and the two step come in handy. I’m glad to say that both my sons have inherited it, I think.”

When asked if he still enjoys dancing, Prince Charles remarked: “Perhaps, it’s slightly less becoming once you get to my age.” Of course, The Prince became a first-time grandfather this July with the birth of Prince George of Cambridge.  If he isn’t planning on donning his own dancing shoes as often now, The Prince did comment on how much he enjoys watching his children, “They’re very good. They do make me laugh when they get going.”
