Prince Charles in a right royal selfie
Photo features the Prince of Wales looking a tad confused by it all
A young boy who managed to snag the first ever Prince Charles selfie has said he plans on keeping the "very good" image forever.
The picture was taken when Prince Charles visited the Coptic Orthodox Church Centre in Stevenage, Hertfordshire on Tuesday, according to the BBC.
The boy, who was a member of the church congregation said: "I went up and said if I could take a photograph. It's a very good picture of me close up to him.
"I didn't wait for the bodyguards to push me out of the way."
Prince Charles was visiting the church to hear concerns from its members over the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. He also met with Bishop Angaelos, the leader of Coptic Christians in the UK.
It has been a busy year for the selfie, with Prince Charles following world leaders, religious heads and political figures such as David Cameron, Barack Obama, Pope Francis and Ed Miliband by joining in the popular phenomenon currently taking social media by storm.
So busy in fact, 'selfie' was even named word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries, beating 'twerk' and earning an official definition of: "A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website" in the English dictionary.
