Prince Charles in 1985

A TikTok user by the name ‘Royal Daily Tea’ managed to dig up an old video clip of the then-37-year-old crown prince busting out some dance moves to entertain a young crowd during his visit to Middleton-on-Sea in West Sussex at a Youth Meets Industry course along with 300 other people. The course was organized and funded by the Prince’s Trust in 1976 to help the youth get their lives on track.

During the royal visit, Prince Charles got to meet and interact with the young crowd that managed to get him to breakdance in front of everyone. However, one thing was clear — the royal heir was not formally trained in the art of dancing.

Not one to disappoint the crowd, the young prince got everyone cheering him on for his impromptu breakdance.

People on social media laughed at the cringey, old-school dance routine but admired his willingness to be a sport.

The King Always Liked to ‘Shake a Leg’

This isn’t the first time that King Charles took to the dance floor. Back in 2012, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall danced in a ‘parachute game’ in Guernsey.
