Way to rock the Ardah, Prince Charles.

Donning traditional robes and wielding a giant sword, the Prince of Wales busted out some gallant (if not somewhat awkward) moves in his 10th official visit to Saudi Arabia as part of a traditional sword dance in Riyadh.

Members of the Saudi royal family led the 65-year-old prince through the all-male ceremony at the annual cultural and heritage Al-Janadriya festival Tuesday evening.

Charles was decked out in traditional flowing robes known as a "thobe," along with a checkered headdress and ceremonial dagger. 

He's no Lawrence of Arabia, but the prince did all right.

We'll walk you throught the steps, Prince Charles style:

1. Don traditional Saudi garb

4. Watch carefully (i.e. look very serious and don't pull out your sword yet)

5. Make a playful go at it, thrusting your huge sword in the air while laughing
