He looked exuberant as ‘dad danced’ to Pharrell Williams’ hit song Happy during a booze-fuelled lads’ skiing holiday last weekend.

But Prince William seemed decidedly more sombre as a French choir sang the same tune to him at a dinner at the British embassy in Paris on Friday.

Perhaps reliving his wild Verbier antics, the Duke of Cambridge failed to crack a smile as the child performers gave a rousing rendition of the chart-topping song.

The Duke of Cambridge hit the headlines over the weekend after more clips emerged of him dancing in a nightclub in Verbier.

During the same night he was seen putting his hands on the waist of a mystery blonde and gyrating with another glamorous clubgoer.

In an embarrassing series of videos, the ‘worse for wear’ 34-year-old is seen letting loose with some ‘dad dancing’ while partying with friends at Farinet nightclub in Switzerland.

The second in line to the throne is then seen turning away from his friends and familiarly putting his hand on a woman’s waist, before leaning in to talk to her.

The woman is believed to be Australian model Sophie Taylor, 24, who William was seen high-fiving on the side of the slopes on the weekend.

In further footage, the father-of-two – who left Kate and his two children behind to enjoy the ‘lads’ trip – is seen cutting some shapes while wearing a woman’s hat, while a blonde woman dances nearby. 

The numerous clips emerged after William was criticised for skipping a major Commonwealth event to go on the skiing holiday in Switzerland. 

Meanwhile, Kate ensured all eyes were on her as she stole the show in her range of sophisticated outfits

The Duke of Cambridge – who has previously been accused of being ‘workshy’ – was one of the only key members of the Royal Family who did not attend the event at Westminster Abbey, despite the occasion having deep personal resonance for the monarch.

It revived criticism that William is failing to knuckle down to his royal role.

In the first clip, which emerged on Tuesday night, Prince William is seen ‘raising the roof’ as he dances to the hit song ‘I Got 5 On It’ by American hip hop duo Luniz.

A second clip shows him surrounded by friends, pointing and grinning as he dances to You’ve Got the Love by Florence and the Machine.

Then, in a third clip, Prince William is filmed clapping, pointing and throwing his arms around one of his friends while dancing to Pharrell Williams’s pop tune Happy.
