Kate Middleton is ‘less than pleased’ with Prince William’s ski trip behaviour

And we’re not surprised…

And we’re not surprised…

Prince William made waves earlier this week when he skipped the annual Commonwealth service at Westminster Palace for a boys ski trip in Verbier.

With Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry all in attendance, Prince William was the only senior member of the royal family to be absent from the prestigious event, something that didn’t go down well with the general public.

While Prince Harry was greeting crowds outside Westminster Palace, photo and video footage was emerging of Prince William unwinding in Switzerland and enjoying the après-ski life, dancing to hip hop until the early hours.

Prince William came under fire, firstly for being ‘throne idle’, with it emerging that he had only fulfilled 13 days of royal duties this year, and secondly for his ‘embarrassing dad dancing’, with videos showing the future King throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor – dancing with a mystery brunette at one point.

People have been wondering how the Duchess of Cambridge has taken the news, and sure enough Royal Watch sources have confirmed that Kate is ‘less than pleased’ with William’s ski behaviour.

The couple will be spending the weekend in Paris, due to arrive in the French capital today, just five months before the 20-year anniversary of the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
