Prince William 'Practising His Dance Moves' Before Diamond Jubilee Visit, Says Duchess Of Cambridge Kate

The Duke of Cambridge has been practising his dance moves ahead of their visit to the Solomon Islands, the Duchess revealed today, as the couple met dignitaries from across the Commonwealth to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The Duke and Duchess will travel to the Pacific islands later this year and described their excitement about the tour during a reception at the Guildhall in London on Tuesday.

The Duke and Duchess spoke about Gary Barlow's recent visit to the Solomon Islands, where the musician recorded part of the official Diamond Jubilee song Sing.

The couple are also expected to visit Malaysia, Singapore and Tuvalu, in the South Pacific, as part of the tour.

If they need any help before their visit, they'd be well advised to look at this gallery of Charles and Camilla's romance in (very) silly pictures.
