This royal’s got rhythm!

Prince Charles couldn’t help but dance along as a Mariachi band serenaded him during a visit to the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

Ever the dignified noble, the prince’s moves – captured by the British Embassy’s Twitter account – involved swinging his arms and a slight shimmy.

Charles, 66, and his wife Camilla, 67, are stateside to tour the U.S. capital. The couple already visited Abraham Lincoln’s cottage and will meet President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden at the White house later in the day, according to USA Today.

The Carlos Rosario school helps teen and adult immigrants earn their GEDs and learn English.
