The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall tried their hands at table tennis as they toured the athletes' village at the Commonwealth Games - with Camilla joking that she would "leave it to the professionals".
The duchess, wearing a pale pink loose-fitted dress and a scarf adorned with two koala brooches, gamely picked up a bat to test her skills against Australian boxers Anja Stridsman and Caitlin Parker.
She was joined by Lucy Turnbull, the wife of Australia's prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, but, with a laugh and a smile, the Duchess concluded: "I think I'll leave it to the professionals."
But Ms Parker, 21, declared: "She smashed it!"
Ms Stridsman, 30, added: "It was a pretty special moment. I feel ready for my match now I've played royalty."
As the tour of the village's games room continued, Camilla did not stop there.
Picking up a pool cue, she looked bemused - but Australian shot put para-athlete Marty Jackson was on hand to help her out and show her how to use it.
Meanwhile, her husband spent a few moments testing out his own table tennis skills against a Bangladeshi athlete.
As the ping pong ball dropped off the table, he threw his hands up in the air with a smile.
Earlier, the couple had arrived at the athletes' village on Australia's Gold Coast to crowds of competitors and staff, all eager to catch a glimpse.
Charles is on a seven-day tour of Australia, with the duchess joining him for the first three days.
