Rockin' Royals: Prince William and Kate Middleton Do The Hula in Tuva(lu)

20 September 2012 by

Team Grazia are no strangers to the dancefloor – we’re mid-fashion week mayhem after all! Not forgetting where to host our annual Christmas party is one of THE hottest conversations of the year. But not everyone is quite so lucky as to limit their abilities to a few friends on a Friday night. And no, we’re not talking about the Strictly contestants here.

Part of every royal’s tour of duty seems to include some local jiggery and Prince William and Kate Middleton were no exceptions as they busted out a few moves in Tuvalu. Still in the party mood and celebrating the Queen’s jubilee, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were adorned with grass skirts, garlands of flowers and took part in the local dance with much gusto. K-Middy looked her graceful, elegant self as always showing willing to get involved with a big smile on her face and excellent coordination. Wills alas, did not fair quite so well. His enthusiasm DEFINITELY matched Kate’s but in the skills department… well we can’t help being reminded of Hugh Grant from the scene in Love Actually when he rocks out to Jump. Amazing.

Fair play to them both, we’re not sure how well we’d have coped knowing the whole world would be tuning in to watch the performance. But these two are far from being the first royals to demonstrate their dancing ability.

Like his older brother, Prince Harry also got roped into a spot of local bump ‘n’ grind as he was hauled up to join in during a Bob Marley song while on tour in Jamaica earlier this year.

Prince Charles and Camilla were caught on camera doing an impromptu routine while on tour in Zanzibar. But without a shadow of a doubt the best example of a royal rocking out, in terms of skill, determination, effort and enthusiasm is Prince Charles who back in the ‘80’s, attempted to break dance while wearing a dapper-looking suit and tie. Watch and learn people, watch and learn.
