  • Prince Charles has revealed the greatest gift he's passed down to the young Princes. And it's made us fall in love with them all over again

    Prince Charles has revealed the greatest gift he’s passed down to his sons: skills on the dance floor.

    The heir famously loves a good dance, having been photographed mid-swing many times over the years.

    He told Women’s Weekly in Australia this week: ‘I’m glad to say both my sons have inherited it, I think. They’re very good. They do make me laugh when they get going.’

    Though the idea of Charles, William and Harry in a dance-off is heaven to some, Charles believes his dancing isn’t what it used to be.

    He said: ‘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.’

    In Charles’ first interview with the magazine, when he was 26, he said: ‘If I hear rhythmic music, I just want to get up and dance.’

    Charles and his wife Camilla gave Christchurch a good show last year when they pulled some shapes to jazz music on a pop-up dance floor at the end of their Diamond Jubilee tour.

    So, if you see Prince William and Prince Harry partying away in Whisky Mist or another of their regular West London haunts, you’ll know where they got it from. Let’s hope baby George inherits it too.
