Farewell to Hussein, a 'king among kings'.
Over 2000 people attended St Paul's Cathedral, London, in honour of the Middle East peace-maker who died in February.
They included Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, Prince Philip, Hussein's son King Abdullah, his wife Queen Rania and Hussein's widow, Queen Noor.
Charles said Hussein, who had strong links with the UK, combined the best qualities of "Bedouin Arab and English gentleman".
He joked how Hussein became a legend at Sandhurst military training school after a sergeant major addressed him as "Mr King Hussein, Sir".
Charles also said he "felt unequal to the task of doing justice to an inspiring man".
