HILARIOUS footage has emerged showing Prince Charles and wife Camilla giggling like naughty schoolchildren during a performance of Inuit throat singing in Canada.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t contain their laughter while two girls performed the unusual duet during a ceremony in the country’s Arctic capital Iqaluit last week.

And despite Camilla wearing a headscarf and sunglasses, she could not disguise her side-splitting reaction.

Known as Katajjaq, the traditional and energetic practice of Inuit throat singing is usually performed by two women who battle it out to see who can last the longest.

Standing facing each other, the singers take turns to make sounds by inhaling and exhaling and only stop when one of them misses a beat or runs out of breath.

Charles and Camilla landed in Canada last Thursday where they joined Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at an event in Ottawa marking the country’s 150th birthday.

Their unusually candid reaction has been praised online for its human and relatable nature.

In May, it emerged Charles had his state visit to Israel dropped by the Foreign Office.

The heir to the throne was set to become the first Royal to carry out an official state visit to the nation since it was created in 1948.

The Prince was set to travel there to honour thousands of British who died in the war at the centenary of the WWI Palestine Campaign and the historic Balfour Declaration.

But insiders say the controversial trip — unofficially pencilled in for later this year — has now been binned.

It is feared the decision may have been taken to avoid upsetting Arab nations in the region who regularly host UK Royals.

A former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan branded the decision an “insult to British war dead” although there is no suggestion Charles was personally involved in any discussions leading to it.
