PRINCE Charles became Lord of the Dance yesterday as he and Camilla joined expert performers in a lively Irish jig.

Camilla laughed and struggled to keep up but the Prince of Wales was hailed a “total natural” by his teachers.
The spectators applauded as the music stopped — and the couple were invited to return for “more practice”.
Charles, who had earlier tried his hand on an Irish hand drum — a bodhran — joked that he needed “vigorous fitness training and a great deal more Guinness” to become proficient.
The couple were guests at the Brú Ború Cultural Centre in Cashel, Co Tipperary, Ireland.
It was the place where tragic teacher Ashling Murphy, 23, played concertina.
She was murdered while out jogging in January and Charles and Camilla met her parents Kathleen and Raymond privately to offer condolences.
The Prince of Wales then paid tribute to Ashling who, he said, had been “taken from us far too soon”.
A 31-year-old man has been charged with murder and awaits trial.
