Never too old to learn a new trade, Britain's Prince Charles received some guidance on the finer points of scratching and fading a record while visiting an employment skills workshop in Toronto Tuesday.

The tutorial came during his and wife Camilla's four-day visit to the city, all part of the Diamond Jubilee marking his mother Queen Elizabeth's rule over the Commonwealth. Two weeks ago, Charles, 63, tried out as a TV weatherman in Scotland, and proved he could point to a map with the best of them.

But how was he as a deejay?

Amazingly adept. The heir to the throne received a loud cheer "when he tried and got it right first time," reports Britain's Telegraph, noting that he did have to ask if he had to wear headphones.

Replied his young instructor, DJ Loquenz (real name: Fayola Leach): "You do if you want to progress to the next level."
