The Prince of Wales had to cover his eyes with his hands during a magician's trick at a celebrity reception in Clarence House this afternoon.
Charles grimaced and looked away as illusionist Dynamo bent his fingers into an highly unusual and unnatural position.
The magician was performing as part of reception for his charity for young people, the Prince's Trust.
Dynamo, who set up as a magician with the help of the charity said the Prince appeared to like his handiwork.
The event was held to celebrate the creation of 100 job ambassadors by the Prince's Trust.
The ambassadors, who themselves faced long-term unemployment before turning things around with the help of the trust, have supported 100,000 other jobless youngsters to develop new skills and access jobs in their community.
Charles paid tribute to the celebrity supporters, as well as the young people who were helping to do the charity's work after benefiting from it themselves.
