King Charles breakdances as iconic rediscovered 1985 video goes viral on TikTok

A throwback video of King Charles attempting to breakdance has resurfaced on TikTok, with some videos amassing thousands of views, likes and astounded comments.

Back in 1985, the 37 year old, who was still Prince Charles at the time, visited Middleton-on-Sea, West Sussex, for a Youth Meets Industry course alongside 300 unemployed people.

The event was funded and organised by the Prince’s Trust, which was launched by Charles in 1976 to help vulnerable young people get their lives on track.

The video shows a group of young breakdances encouraging the young royal to take to the dancefloor.

While Charles was clearly no professional, he gave it a good go, and the crowd went wild for his robot arm dance moves

On TikTok, one person joked, “The real King of Hip Hop”, while another said, “How kool our king is a breakdancer and we didn't even know it.”

Another added: “Lock and pop your majesty.”

Other people weren’t so convinced by the royal breakdancer, with one person adding: “Oh no! Please stop him NOW. Love Prince Charles!”

Earlier this week, it was revealed the Monarch intends to sell 12 of his mother’s racehorses that were left to him following her death on September 8.

Just last year, 36 of the Queen’s horses were crowned winners, earning her winnings of a whopping £590,000.

It’s believed that the Queen earned £10 million from horse racing over the course of her life after making her start with just two trainers and 20 horses in the 1950s.

"The Royal stud could be a museum in three years. It would be a real shame,” a royal source told the Mail on Sunday.

King Charles also has 60 racehorses and 38 brood mares in Sandringham, though is expected to start selling them off for high prices in the New Year.

The source continued: "The connection between the family and the horse racing industry will continue.

"The desire is to continue with the traditions and connections with Royal Ascot but not on the same scale as Her Majesty because she had a passion."

Some horses have already been sold, but insiders said this is simply part of the “natural churn” of buying and selling animals.

The Queen is said to have sold at least 7 horses a year.
