Poor Prince Charles always gets made to dance whenever he goes anywhere, and his tour of Saudi Arabia is proving no exception.

Wearing a traditional Saudi full-length outfit known as a thobe, Charles played his part in an ardah - or sword dance - at a stadium in the Saudi capital Riyadh.
Charles wore a chequered headdress and ceremonial dagger during the dance which featured hundreds of Saudi Arabian men and boys in formation holding swords,  part of the annual 17-day Janadriyah Festival.
