Was Prince William mocked at a dinner held by the British Ambassador?

On Friday evening, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a black tie dinner in Paris hosted by British Ambassador Lord Edward Llewellyn.

While most eyes were on the Duchess in an ice-blue Jenny Packham gown, the music for the evening did not go unnoticed.

Kids United, a youth musical group whose campaigns are set up to support UNICEF, had a familiar choice in song when performing in front of the Duke and Duchess, choosing Pharell’s hit song ‘Happy’.

If you can’t seem to place why that song might sound familiar, let us remind you. Prince William’s viral club dancing video of his boy’s skiing weekend was to that very same song. While Prince William didn’t budge, it seems he can’t escape his ill-timed vacation that he took in place of attending Commonwealth Day celebrations.

Other than that gentle reminder of last weekend’s events, the evening went off with out a hitch. The Duke and Duchess dined with guests like Kristin Scott-Thomas, Jean Reno and Audrey Tautou on sole crown and Dublin Bay prawns, crayfish, braised leg of Welsh lamb with a seasonal vegetable garnish and roast potatoes with thyme, and an iced white and dark chocolate soufflé, butterscotch sauce with a pistachio and almond diamond shortbread.

The dinner capped off the first day of the two-day tour of Paris.


Starting off their two-day visit, the Duke and Duchess were met by French President Francois Hollande on the steps of Elysee Palace where the trio smiled for pictures before heading inside.

During their visit, they will meet with survivors of the terrorist attacks in Paris and Nice, as well as taking in a Six Nations rugby match between France and Wales.

The visit comes after Her Majesty signed her Royal Assent to the Brexit Bill. Le Point, a French political magazine described the royal visit by the Duke and Duchess as a “weapon of glamour against a hard Brexit.”

Do you think the choice of song was deliberate? Should they have picked a different song? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below:
