How to... sip a pint of Guinness if you're the King of Lesotho

A pint fit for a King…

KING LETSIE III of Lesotho has been in Ireland this week for an official visit which included meetings with the president, ministers and other important people.

But he and his wife Queen Masenate Mohato Seesion also took time out to do some fun stuff like visiting the Newbridge Factory and Museum and the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.

And it was there at the top of the tower on the final part of their visit that the King himself showed us how it’s done when it comes the humble pint of the black stuff.

It was all in sharp contrast to Prince Philip when he visited the Storehouse around this time last year.

Step 1: Pick it up, give it the eye, maybe talk to it a little bit and ignore all else around you including your wife making a remark…

Step 2: Bring it slowly towards the mouth…

Step 3: Lash the lips on, take a bit more than sip and bask in the glory as those around you admire…

Duking it out, part deux: Who wants to stop for a Guinness?
