Prince Charles Visits London Ideal Home Show, Meets Topiary People (PHOTOS)

Prince Charles made his official rounds at the Ideal Home Show in London Friday, touring exhibits, testing furniture, and ... meeting topiary people?

The Prince of Wales was introduced to living topiary statues, and his reaction seemed to be one of confusion. But with what looked like a nervous smile, the good prince shook hands with the people dressed in leafy costumes, which we applaud. After all, it is etiquette.

Either way, it's an awkwardly entertaining moment, no?
