Camilla in a spin at Jewish centre’s 80th anniversary
The Duchess of Cornwall was left in a spin when she stepped on to the dance floor during a visit to an East End centre for the elderly.
Camilla, 71, was twirled around by a sprightly 86-year-old who could not believe his luck that one of the youngest women in the room wanted to dance.
The duchess was visiting Jewish Care’s Brenner Centre in Stepney, an area of east London once famous for its vibrant Jewish community, to celebrate its 80th anniversary.
When a singer began performing the traditional Jewish song Hava Nagila, Camilla joined a ring of dancing guests who all held hands before she linked arms with 86-year-old Abraham David and they spun around.
Mr David, from Shadwell, said: “It was a lovely, wonderful experience, I think I’m dreaming.
“She put her hand out to mine and wanted to dance – I couldn’t believe it. I won’t sleep tonight I’m so excited.”
