The Prince of Wales picks his way through a massive mob of south Londoners during his royal visit to the ancient market at Beresford Square, Woolwich. The future king looks almost unnerved by = the attention, before he makes his escape by car, with nice shots of market stalls as the royal limo follows mounted police out the area.
