DJ Prince Charles? Royal Works Turntables in Toronto

Anwar Hussein/WireImage(TORONTO) -- During a visit to a Toronto youth center this week, Prince Charles proved once again that it’s never too late to experiment with a new career.

The next king of England and his wife, Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, appeared at the Yonge Street Mission Tuesday, according to media reports, as part of a four-day trip to Canada for the Diamond Jubilee, celebrations surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s 60-year reign.

Charles successfully learned to scratch and fade a record as a deejay instructor let him try his hand at the turntables, according to the Telegraph.

It wasn’t the first time the royal showed his lighter, more fun side though. Earlier this month, the 63-year-old prince gave TV weather forecasters across the world a run for their money when he presented the weather forecast in Scotland during a visit to BBC headquarters in Glasgow.

In the past, Charles has also shown an appreciation for music — as well as a love for dancing.

In April 2011, the London Evening Standard reported that he and Kate Middleton, the wife of his eldest son, Prince William, had collaborated on the music for the upcoming nuptials by swapping iPods.

Also that month, a video of Charles break-dancing with young people in the 1980s made waves after it popped up on YouTube.

Prince William's, Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Date Set

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LONDON) -- It's finally time for millions of Britons, celebrities, and foreign leaders to save the date. After a flurry of speculation, the royal family said Tuesday that recently engaged Prince William and Kate Middleton have set a date for their wedding.

The royal couple will be wed at Westminster Abbey Friday, April 29, 2011, according to a statement by the royal house of Prince Charles, William's father.

As one of the most anticipated events of 2011, the date will be declared a national holiday and, in addition to the thousands of guests expected to attend the wedding, millions more will be watching on television and online.

The wedding could be an emotional return to Westminster for Prince William. It was the same place he said his final goodbyes to his mother, the late Princess Diana, at her funeral in 1997.
