Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, visit oyster festival in Whitstable

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall showed they have rhythm today – by joining a samba band on stage in Whitstable.

The royal couple started a tour of the county at the Whitstable Oyster Festival Рand even banged drums with group Samba Pelo Mar.

Musical director Ann Day said: “They were both very chatty and relaxed and up for enjoying themselves and joining in.

“I gave them two beaters and got the crowd to join in. They did really well and have certainly got potential.”

Thousands of well-wishers turned out for one of the prince’s first public engagements since the birth of his first grandson, Prince George.

He and his wife met local fishermen and business owners at the Whitstable Harbour.

And the future king even tried an oyster at West Whelks – before “wiping his mouth with satisfaction”.

A cake for the royal couple – decorated by the KM Group – was presented to Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, by local children.

It is one of three stops in Kent today: the couple are also this afternoon visiting the Prince’s Trust Centre in Chatham to meet unemployed people getting help from the charity’s Fairbridge programme, and the Historic Dockyard Chatham.
