Prince Charles had an impromptu vibesing session with a traditional band after he arrived in Ghana for the latest leg of his West African tour.

The royal showed his moves when he was asked to join a group of local performers in Christiansborg Castle, Osu, today.

He performed a simple jig and rattled a calabash instrument as he found his rhythm.

Prince Charles may have chosen the simple moves because he was keen to avoid being mocked like Theresa May was when she danced with kids in Nigeria earlier this year.

He managed to pull it off and will not be made fun of like the Prime Minister.
