The Prince of Wales's nose proved an irresistible attraction to a toddler whose parents endured watching their home burn to the ground during the Tottenham riots.
Charles returned to the scene of the major disturbance to learn how the area is recovering.
The heir to the throne shared a lighter moment with husband and wife Mehmet and Burcin Akbasak - who lost their home when rioters set fire to the Carpetright building and flats above.
The dramatic pictures of the Tottenham landmark glowing red hot became a iconic image of the August 2011 riots.
In the shadow of the rebuilt building, Charles sympathised with Mr Akbasak and his wife - who are originally from Turkey - as the couple held their twin daughters Kayla and Lara aged 12 months.
Kayla reached out and made a grab for the prince's nose and he leant forward and happily let the toddler play with his face.Mr Akbasak, 33, said: "Both my daughters are friendly but Kayla was quite interested in the prince and they shared a nice moment."

Prince Harry, who has twice been deployed to Afghanistan, is to become a Staff Officer at HQ London District, which organises ceremonial spectacles like Trooping the Colour and state visits.
Earlier it was announced the Prince has completed his attachment with the Army Air Corps flying Apache helicopters.
He will begin his job in the next few weeks and there is speculation his new role based in Horse Guards in central London will allow him to get in involved with the Warrior Games.
Harry flew to America last year to support competitors taking part in the Games, a paralympic style event for injured servicemen and women, and he hopes to help bring the event to the UK.
Lieutenant Colonel Tom de la Rue, who commanded Harry in the Army Air Corps, said: "Captain Wales has reached the pinnacle of flying excellence as an Apache pilot, particularly in Afghanistan and, in the process, has proved to be a real inspiration to the many Army Air Corps officers and soldiers."
Prince Harry is to take up a new military role organising major commemorative events involving the Army after completing his attachment with the Army Air Corps flying Apache helicopters, Kensington Palace said today.
Prince Harry has completed his attachment to 3 Regiment Army Air Corps and will now take up a Staff Officer role in HQ London District.
The Prince will take the position of SO3 (Defence Engagement). His responsibilities will include helping to co-ordinate significant projects and commemorative events involving the Army in London. Prince Harry will retain the rank of Captain and be based from Horse Guards, in Central London.
