Britain’s Prince Charles tried his hand at making strawberry tarts in Scotland?today (05.08.13).

The Prince of Wales paid a visit to the Reid’s bakery in Thurso, north Scotland, and wasted no time getting involved in the family trade by donning a traditional white coat and hat before filling pastries with cream and putting sticky strawberry in tarts.

The 64-year-old royal was praised for his efforts by 19-year-old staff member Lauren McKenzie, who gave him a demonstration, but shortly before he had a go at making the calorific treats with a piping bag, he said: “I’ve no idea how these things work.”

She told The Herald newspaper: “He did very well. He didn’t grasp the bag tight enough at the top, but I think he did really well.”

Charles – who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland – was also given a tour of the facility, where he watched biscuits being packed and saw cakes being created, and he was “really interested” by the whole baking process.

Bakery worker Charlene Banks, 18, said: “He asked what type of flour I was using and how the scales worked. He seemed really interested.”
