Jackie Chan offers to teach Prince Charles Kung fuNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:18 am ICT by admin
Charles got the unusual invitation at an awards ceremony in London, which was organised to recognise the achievements of “unsung heroes” among the UK’s Chinese community.
“I send all my love and kisses … especially for Prince Charles. If you want to learn some kung fu, give me a call, I will come right away,” Daily Snack quoted Chan as saying in the message.
The video also shows Chan apologising for not making the offer to Charles personally.
The Prince’s attendance at the Pearl Awards at the Royal Festival Hall capped off a China-themed day, which began with a visit to London’s Chinatown with the Duchess of Cornwall.
He introduced the awards by praising the 250,000-strong UK Chinese community’s “significant and largely unsung contribution to national life”.
He talked about Chinese cuisine, traditional Chinese medicine, and China’s “precocious and brilliant musicians”.
Charles even mentioned an “extremely talented and industrious” young man from China who recently joined his office. (ANI)
