Royals Gone Wild: See Kate Middleton Dancing In A Grass Skirt

On the tiny Pacific island of Tuvalu. Prince William eventually joined in, thereby fully exploring (and exploiting) his awkwardness.

1. When William and Kate arrived in Tuvalu on the last leg of their Diamond Jubilee tour, they were carried from their plane to a welcoming ceremony.

Measuring only 10 square miles, the Polynesian island of Tuvalu is one of the smallest countries on Earth.

2. Kate changed into traditional dress, and even William allowed a crown of flowers instead of diamonds to be placed on his head.

This wasn’t Kate’s usual tiara, that’s for sure, but hey, it wasn’t her usual tweed shirtdress either.

3. She joined the dance…

7. Eventually the Stiff Prince (no pun intended, you filthy minds, you!) joined in.

Once he put on his hula skirt, he finally lost all inhibitions. Hips don’t lie!
