Prince Charles will celebrate his 70th birthday on 14 November and a whole host of festivities have already been lined up for the royal – including a TV magic show.

The Prince of Wales will be honoured with a London Palladium gala starring Britain’s finest magicians.

The show – called We Are Most Amused and Amazed – will be broadcast by ITV, who said it would put on “a truly unique and unforgettable night where the world’s greatest comics join forces with the most accomplished of magicians to celebrate The Prince of Wales’s 70th Birthday”.

It’s a fitting tribute to the royal, who was inducted in to the Magic Circle in 1975 after performing a classic cup and ball trick of his own.

The line-up for the gala is still be announced but street magician Dynamo is tipped to the star of the show.

He was supported by The Prince’s Trust and has revealed it has helped to change his life.

He said: “When I said I wanted to be a magician they didn’t laugh in my face as so many others had done, they gave me the help I needed.”

Prince Charles was introduced to the secretive Magic Circle by his great-uncle, Earl Mountbatten, who had been a member for 20 years.

Celebrations to mark his milestone birthday began earlier this summer, when Charles threw a garden party at Buckingham Palace for his staff and to celebrate the work of his charities. Prince Harry gave a heartfelt speech in his honour.
