Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are visiting Jordan and Egypt this week, becoming the first members of the Royal Family to carry out a major overseas tour since the pandemic started. They arrived in Jordan yesterday, and started their public engagements for their four-day visit. Today he was shown a playground where primary school-aged children were using the swings and slides. He was given a range of handmade gifts by the children. 

A clip has emerged from the playground of Charles meeting the children. 

In the clip the Prince can be heard asking: “What’s his favourite subject in school?”

A translator then informs the Prince that the child’s favourite subject is in fact English. 

Prince Charles can then be heard asking: “Are you getting very good at English? Can you say a word in English?”

The child replies: “This is a frog.”

Charles then laughs and says: “Brilliant. Of course the next thing is to know what a swing is.”

The child carries on swinging on the swing, as Prince Charles tells the translator: “You can tell him, my Arabic is not as good as his English.”

He added with a smile: “You’ll have to teach me some Arabic.”

During his engagements today, the Prince was asked about his mother’s health.

He revealed that the 95-year-old monarch is “alright.”

Charles cheekily added: “Once you get to 95, it’s not quite as easy as it used to be. It’s bad enough at 73.”

The Prince celebrated his 73rd birthday on Sunday.
