Prince William is catching flak for being caught dancing at a club in Switzerland instead of attending to more “serious” matters.
Criticism mounted against William, 34, after video footage emerged of him dancing the night away in the Swiss ski resort town of Verbier. The tabloid press in the U.K. is taking the stance that the second-in-line to the throne doesn’t work hard enough.
The prince went on a ski holiday with friends while Queen Elizabeth, 90, along with other senior royals, attended a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in London.
An official record of royal engagements says William has carried out royal duties on 13 days this year, compared with 18 for his brother, Prince Harry, and 24 for the Queen. On Friday, William and his wife, Kate Middleton, head to Paris for an official two-day trip.
Naturally, Twitter users mocked the royal’s dancing.
Prince William "dad-dancing"? Round our way that sort of thing is called fifteen-pints-and-a-couple-of-pills dancing.
