Charles’ pint pulling mocked as Twitter asks ‘what happened to that poor beer?’

Prince Charles got a lesson in how to pull the perfect pint of Guinness and was very keen to drink it, eagerly asking how long he had to wait before taking a sip.

The Prince of Wales along with his wife Camilla visited the Irish Culture Centre in London on Tuesday (March 15) ahead of St Patrick's Day.

During the visit, Charles was shown how to pull a pint of Guinness and after a bit of a struggle he eventually succeeded.

After topping up another pint that had been half poured, he asked: "How much longer do I have to wait to drink it", before proceeding to take a sip, after only a few seconds of letting it settle and getting froth on his nose.

The Duchess of Cornwall was left in stiches with her husband's pint pulling attempts, with social media users being quick to mock his technique.

A Twitter user wrote: "What the heck happened to that poor beer?!" While another joked it was "badly poured".

A third Commented: "A stout like Guinness should rest for a minute or so before drinking it!"

Some users were not as polite in their criticism, with one exclaiming: "The video shows he doesn't know what the hell he's doing".

Elsewhere during the visit, the royal couple were also given a quick lesson in how to play a bodhrán – a traditional Irish drum.

They learned how to play a simple beat before the rest of the musicians joined in to play traditional Irish music, with the royals tapping their feet to the tune.

The couple were also treated to an Irish dancing show before Charles unveiled a plaque to mark the visit.
