A Cornish builder has bagged a selfie with the Duke of Cornwall.
Scaffolder Sam Wayne approached Prince Charles as the Royal visited an affordable housing development in Newquay.
The 34 old from Pool tells Pirate FM if you do not ask, you do not get: "He was OK. I think he was a bit camera shy at first but I got one in the end.
"I knew he was coming round the corner so I sort of like shuffled up and made sure I was there. I spoke to a site agent and I thought well, I might as well take my chances and I asked the Prince for a selfie.
"He was very chatty, made me feel at ease, he didn't make me feel awkward about it or anything; yeah it was nice. I felt quite comfortable talking to him you know? You've got to be brave.
"I think it will be a profile picture or something."
Prince Charles and Camilla were visiting Tregunnel Hill in Newquay which is a mixed-use neighbourhood on Duchy-owned land on the south-western edge of Newquay town centre.
It comprises 174 homes including 48 two and three bedroomed affordable homes and employment space for around 30 jobs.
Work on the 4.4 hectare site started in 2012 and will be completed in 2015 using granite and slate from local companies in places like Tintagel and Tavistock.
The Royal couple have also visited flood-hit businesses in Looe and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen on a three day tour of the West Country.
