Prince Charles shows off dance moves
Nov 16, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla showed off their rock 'n' roll dance moves yesterday (15.11.12).
The royal couple were visiting Christchurch in New Zealand to learn how its residents have rebuilt their lives following a devastating earthquake in February 2011and one of the things they were shown was a pop up dancefloor.
Gap Filler, a charitable trust, has been finding uses for open spaces, with the dance area given sound through a washing machine that plays tunes from an mp3 player.
Camilla was first on the dancefloor after accepting an invitation from university student Sam Johnson.
Swaying to the 1940s music, Camilla - a keen fan of ballroom show 'Strictly Come Dancing' - told her husband: 'Come on darling, you've got to dance too'.
Lisa Shannon, a 57-year-old psychology student, thought the prince looked 'lonely' so asked him to dance and was impressed by his footwork.
She said afterwards: '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 couple - who were on the last day of their Diamond Jubilee tour - also visited a shopping area to see how retailers have set up home in renovated cargo ship containers after the earthquake forced them out of their premises.
