The Princes of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall danced to Elvis during a visit to Scotland.

An amusing clip, filmed during a tea dance at Dumfries House in East Ayreshire, showed Prince Charles twirl Camilla around as impersonator John Reid performed the rock and roll god’s hits.

The dance took place at the house’s walled garden pavilion and was attended by 45 people from community groups.

It is part of a series of events to mark 10 years since the Prince helped secure the future of the stately home.

They also attended a garden party where they met people from the local community.

Charles spoke to Mason Kidd, 12, who is carrying out a kindness project, performing 18 acts of kindness in memory of his brother Ross who died of cancer aged two and would have turned 18 on December 1 this year.

As his twelfth act of kindness, the Cumnock Academy pupil gave the Prince a framed photo of a view of the temple at Dumfries House.

Mason said: “I was extremely nervous to talk to the Prince but happy that the twelfth act of kindness is done.”

His other acts have included taking doughnuts to the police and pizza to firemen, and leaving balls at a dog walking park.

His mother Alyson Kidd, a photographer, said: “He started in March and is using his pocket money to get money for the acts of kindness.

“Mason told Prince Charles about the project and the Prince was very moved.

“I’m blown away that the Prince was so interested and he said Mason was doing a great job.”

The couple, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, met also children from local primary schools who were taking part in education activities and having a tea party in the Pierburg Garden.

They then went on to a dog show, accompanied by Camilla’s two Jack Russell dogs Mabel and Bluebell. 

The celebrations are being held to mark a decade since the stately home was saved for the nation by the Prince.

Charles helped arrange a £45 million deal to buy the house and its collection of Chippendale furniture.
