The royal entourage was visiting Complexo da Mare, one of the largest (and most dangerous) slums in Rio. They were greeted by crowds and dancers, who cajoled the Prince into an awkward rendition of the samba.

Charles addressed the crowd of onlookers, explaining that his history with the dance began 30 years previous.

"I can remember dancing a somewhat rudimentary version of the samba with a rather dramatically semi-naked lady here in Rio." he said.
