During Charles' tour of the JW3 community center, he also spoke to school children packing presents and food hampers for families around Camden. His visit including a meeting with refugees baking gingerbread biscuits.


ABBA might have to release another dancefloor filler called Dancing King as Charles, who notoriously loves a boogie, had another memorable moment of movement this week.

Charles met with a group of Holocaust survivors – one being the stepsister to Anne Frank – during his visit of the JW3 community center in North London on Friday.

Charles also joined the guests for a Hannukah tea reception. The guests were only informed ahead of time that a surprise guest would be joining them, and no one expected it to be the King.

But Charles really got into the spirit of the occasion.

Eva Schloss, a 93-year-old survivor and the stepsister to Anne Frank described the monarch as “sweet.”

She told The Telegraph, “He really took part, he seemed to enjoy it… he was very relaxed and he enjoyed it, I was trying to get a dance with him.”

"They are so easy to talk to, they are not standing on a higher level where you have to make an appointment, they are human beings and want to be part of the community and part of the British people and help everybody."

During the visit, Charles also met refugees baking gingerbread biscuits and survivors of the Holocaust.

JW3's chief executive Raymond Simonson, who accompanied the King on his tour of the center, said Charles turned up with a car boot full of rice and tinned tuna to go into the donation packets.

The King was presented with a menorah bearing the inscription, “One person’s candle provides the light to many.”

The JW3 tour came after the release of part two of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries, which further explored their difficulties with the Royal Family.

As Charles’ touching visit of the Jewish center shows, it’s business as usual for the royals though, who are refusing to comment on the Netflix special.  

While there's speculation that William is "unlikely" to ever rebuild his relationship with Harry, there's been no official word from the Palace since the final three episodes dropped on Thursday (December 15).
