Prince Charles & Camilla Parker Bowles Share a Laugh After He Struggled to Pour a Guinness

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles stopped by the Irish Cultural Center in London. During their visit, the royal couple enjoyed a laugh or two while Charles attempted to pour a pint of beer.

Per People, Charles made a valiant effort, but he struggled to pour himself a glass of beer after being shown how to do it correctly. After a few failed attempts, the Duchess of Cornwall was overcome with giggles. At one point, Charles took a sip of the beer and got a little bit of foam on his nose.

While visiting the center, Charles and Bowles learned about Irish cultural history and toured various sections of the facility. (The ICC is the home of Irish culture in the U.K., showcasing film, art and literature.) They were even invited to play the Irish bodhrán drum, which is a traditional instrument in Irish music.

This public appearance comes after Bowles invited the women of Team ExtraORdinary to the Clarence House to celebrate their milestones. In the office, Prince Charle has a photo collection that features old snapshots of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In one photo, we see a younger version of Harry smiling for the camera. Next to it was a black-and-white snapshot taken at Harry and Markle’s wedding. It shows Prince Charles and the bride walking down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel. Markle donned a white boat-neck dress that was designed by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller.

It’s nice to see Charles and Bowles immersing themselves in Irish culture.
