This clip of Kate Middleton cracking up as Prince William awkwardly gallops like a horse is a holiday gift
Turns out, Prince William‘s equestrian skills don’t only come in handy when he’s playing polo.
A new video has surfaced from this year’s Royal Variety Performance, which took place at London’s Palladium Theatre on November 24 and was broadcast in the U.K. on Tuesday. In it, William shows off his best gallop — minus the horse and in a tux.
The move came at the request of one of the young members of the cast of Annie, which is currently playing on London’s West End. The Annie actress was convinced to do so by the evening’s host, British comedian Miranda Hart.
“Please sir, will you gallop with us?” the little girl asked, before William stood up and showed off his gallop — much to the delight of his wife, Kate Middleton. Kate couldn’t stop laughing as a blushing William briefly dance-galloped from his place in the Royal Box. The cast of Annie followed his lead and galloped off stage themselves.
One thing’s for sure: Never say the future king isn’t a good sport!
