Prince Charles the Break Dancer?

1980's Video Shows the Future King of England's Fun Side

A video of Prince Charles break-dancing with young people in the 1980s has made its way onto YouTube, defying perceptions of the Prince of Wales as distant, quiet and not much fun.

In the video, the father of the soon-to-be-wed Prince William is pulled onto a dance floor by teenagers and holds his own as he busts a few moves -- all while dressed in a suit.

"I got a lot of flak for a lot of things," Charles said in a BBC documentary in September. "I mean, potty this, potty that, loony this, loony that."

For the man who will be king of England, there are even more amusing -- even quirky -- stories out there. Read more about the rarely seen side of Prince Charles.
