Well, if this whole King of the Britons lark doesn't pan out, it's nice to know Prince Charles has a few backup plans.

Having already proven that he's a whiz with a green screen when he delivered the world's poshest weather report earlier this month and made commuters fear for their safety while manning the London Underground earlier this year, the heir to the throne this week tried out his hand at yet another possible avocation: spinning some phat beats.

Talk about a fresh prince. So where, how and dear God why did Chuck turn DJ?

It's all in a day's work for the globetrotting, photo-op-producing prince on the royal family's latest tour of the Commonwealth.

While visiting the Yonge Street Mission youth center in Toronto, the Duke of Cornwall proved he's down with the kids by grabbing a pair of headphones, stepping behind a turntable and doing his able best not to mortify sons William and Harry by playing DJ.

The 63-year-old seemed to be enjoying himself and was taught how to—brace yourselves, now—successfully scratch and fade a record. Game as ever, he laughed and joked (in somewhat atypical DJ attire of a pinstripe gray suit and pocket kerchief) his way through the lesson, which earned him a couple of warm if not exactly spontaneous rounds of applause.

Charles was accompanied by wife Camilla on his four-day trip to Canada, embarked upon in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee year.
