Prince Charles Takes Part in Saudi Sword Dance

Prince Charles did his best to enter into the spirit of things during a ceremony celebrating cultural life in Saudi Arabia last night. The Prince of Wales joined members of the Saudi royal family in an Ardah ( sword dance) in a stadium in capital Riyadh. The prince wore a flowing outfit known as a ‘thobe’, traditionally worn by men from the Arab Gulf states, a chequered headdress and a ceremonial dagger.

The ceremony was performed to celebrate the Janadriyah Festival, an annual event lasting 17 days which celebrates Saudi culture and is being held this week in Riyadh.
