During a visit to a Toronto youth center this week, Prince Charles proved once again that it’s never too late to experiment with a new career.

The next king of England and his wife, Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, appeared at the Yonge Street Mission Tuesday, according to media reports, as part of a four-day trip to Canada for the Diamond Jubilee, celebrations surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s 60-year reign.

Charles successfully learned to scratch and fade a record as a deejay instructor let him try his hand at the turntables, according to the Telegraph.

It wasn’t the first time the royal showed his lighter, more fun side though. Earlier this month, the 63-year-old prince gave TV weather forecasters across the world a run for their money when he presented the weather forecast in Scotland during a visit to BBC headquarters in Glasgow.

In the past, Charles has also shown an appreciation for music — as well as a love for dancing.

In April 2011, the London Evening Standard reported that he and Kate Middleton, the wife of his eldest son, Prince William, had collaborated on the music for the upcoming nuptials by swapping iPods.

Also that month, a video of Charles break-dancing with young people in the 1980s made waves after it popped up on YouTube.
