A sword-wielding prince may sound like something out a fairy-tale, but it's just another day for Prince Harry.
According to NBC News, the 30-year-old royal was handed a traditional Omani sword on Wednesday and, without much prompt, squared off and engaged in a mock sword fight with a 60-year-old folk dancer.
He joked, "So, where are the press?"
The fourth in line to the British throne was never in any actual danger, but even if he was, he's not stranger to swords. As an officer in the Household Cavalry he holds a sword whenever dressed in his ceremonial uniform.
Prince Harry is on a three day trip Oman and then heads to Abu Dhabi to compete in a charity polo match.
