Don’t worry, folks. The prince has still got it. Prince Charles danced when he took part in a 1,000-year-old traditional Dene Dum Dance in Yellowknife, the capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories.
The Prince of Wales, who has been on a three-day royal tour of Canada with Camilla, also spoke with Chief Edward Sangris and Chief Fred Sangris privately about issues affecting indigenous people on his trip to see the Yellowknives Dene First Nation Leadership at the Chief Drygeese Government Building in Detta.
Prince Charles Shows Off His Smooth Moves During Traditional Drum Dance In Canada
According to those who were there, Charles was then happily coaxed by the chiefs to participate in the conga-style dance. He smiled as dancers took selfies while the line wound itself in a circle around the room. The dance, which consists of drumming and singing, is performed at most gatherings and celebrations. The drummers sing and play their caribou hide drums in a rhythmic beat while dancing around in a circle – always in a clockwise direction, to follow the direction of the sun.
In other words, the future king of England still has his smooth moves and even at his age, too.
Earlier in the month it was reported that many critics want Charles and Camilla to apologize for Britain’s colonial past in Canada. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, went to Canada and apologized for the “terrible crime” of the Anglican Church’s involvement in the residential schools system. He said: “I am so sorry that the Church participated in the attempt… to dehumanize and abuse those we should have embraced as brothers and sisters.”
After hearing stories from survivors, Justin Welby told them: “I am more sorry than I can say. I am ashamed. I am horrified.”
