Prince Charles dances to the hokey cokey in Sri Lanka

The Prince of Wales has been known to show off his dancing skills while away on official tours and in Sri Lanka he got another opportunity - doing the hokey cokey.

Charles clearly enjoyed his performance as he joined a group of mentally and physically disabled children taking part in a music lesson.

The impromptu dancing came on the last day of Charles and Camilla's 11-day tour of India and Sri Lanka.

Standing between a teacher and a girl Charles took their hands and walked into the middle of the room with the class singing "oh the hokey cokey" then performed all the actions.

The prince gamely joined in for a number of verses of the song but when a pianist continued playing he laughed and bowed out.
