Prince Charles’ attempts to pour the perfect pint of Guinness gave Camilla a fit of giggles during a reception at the Irish Cultural Centre in in Hammersmith, west London. 

As the Duchess looked on, Prince Charles went behind the bar where he was shown how to properly pull two pints of the black stuff.

She appeared to be laughing as he carefully poured the iconic stout, while also commenting on his progress.

As he finished filling one glass, the Duchess smiled as Charles tasted the beverage.

The Prince then took several sups, committing the cardinal error of not letting it settle first.

Camilla also quietly told her husband that there was a spot of Guinness froth on his nose and after quickly cleaning his face, the Prince of Wales burst out laughing.

The royals, who were given a colourful reception when they earlier arrived at the centre with a band performing traditional Irish music, later joined the musicians and tapped their feet along to the tunes.

They were later given a quick lesson on how to play the bodhrán, and were treated to a show including traditional dances.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess Camilla visited the centre to mark its 25th year, just days before the future King and his wife are set to depart on an official visit to Ireland.

It was announced last month that the pair will visit between March 23 and 25.

On their last trip here, in 2019, they met President Michael D Higgins in Co Wicklow on what was the Prince of Wales's fifth visit in five years.
