After travelling by boat to Muchelney in Somerset to assess the flooding, Prince Charles was asked by a young family if he would indulge in a high-five.
After a brief pause, the Prince of Wales obliged, much to the delight of the young girl's parents.
Prince Charles appeared to criticise efforts to help flood victims in today saying: The tragedy is that nothing happened for so long."
Ministers have been steering clear of flooded Somerset - but for how long? But after Prince Charles' visit, don't expect it to last.
