Watch: British royal Prince Charles hits the dancefloor (again) in Saudi Arabia

<p>It’s the kind of footage that might have his sons Prince William and Prince Harry running for cover.</p> <p>Prince Charles, next in line to the throne in Britain, wore traditional robes as he danced during a festival of culture in Saudi Arabia.</p> <p><iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/YsV0KkOSOqc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p>He took part in the sword dance in the capital Riyadh, during a tour of the Middle East, which will also include a visit to Qatar.</p> <p>The dance, called the Ardah, was performed as part of the Janadriyah Festival, a two-week cultural extravaganza that celebrates Saudi heritage.</p> <p>Official royal visits have seen Prince Charles take to the dancefloor on a number of occasions, as euronews’ montage below shows. </p> <p>It includes, perhaps most infamously, breakdancing in the 1980s and doing the waltz in Glasgow, Scotland.</p> <p><h3>Prince Charles breakdancing</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/CPncTy2AKeI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><h3>Prince Charles does The Hokey Cokey in Sri Lanka</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Ro5pNy81QhI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><h3>Prince Charles dances in New Zealand</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/AwMwhJCaHXA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><h3>Prince Charles doing the waltz in Glasgow</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/yxkH5bmbbn8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><h3>Prince Charles dancing in India</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/6_Dv-t8-4FI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><h3>Prince Charles, William and Harry dancing montage</h3><br /> <iframe width="606" height="341" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/YnapYVpO9e4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p>
