Prince Charles displayed a competitive edge on Friday, beating pub regulars in a game of dominoes during a brief tour of a North Yorkshire village.

The Prince had earlier stopped at the wool mill in Muker, Swaledale to unveil a plaque celebrating the company's 30th anniversary in the village.

He was presented with a hand-knitted Christmas jumper for his efforts.

The Prince also visited a stonemason's college in York and an agricultural college in Teesdale, County Durham.

Prince Charles enjoyed a whisky while chatting with local farmers and taking them on at dominoes.

He told them: "I love this part of the world."

Pub regulars at the Farmers' Arms were said to be delighted when he won.
