Mirror: Prince William Revealed He's Watched 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Wife Kate Is a Huge Fan of the Show
Prince William, 37, recently attended a 50-year celebration of homelessness charity Centrepoint. At the event, the Royal met BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing” head judge Shirley Ballas, 59, and host Claudia Winkleman, 47, alongside Duran Duran.
Ballas is an ambassador for Centrepoint. Speaking to Ballas and Winkleman, William allegedly asked: “Why does Claudia never dance?!”
The host reportedly giggled and responded: “I’m too creaky!” Ballas then asked the Royal if he watched the dance show.

The Royal’s mother-in-law is Carole Middleton. Ballas is a judge on the show alongside Bruno Tonioli, Motsi Mabuse, and Craig Revel Horwood.
They work together weekly to give verdicts on the celebrity dancer’s performances.
Duchess of Cornwall loves the dance competition too

Wednesday’s star-studded gala was held to open Centrepoint's Apprenticeship House in London. Centrepoint was one of the first patronages William took on in 2005.
He chose the organization after visiting many projects with mother Princess Diana. William has been a committed supporter and has camped out overnight on the street, made several private visits, and championed the young people that the charity supports.
The charity helps more than 15,000 young people yearly.
William looked dashing at the gala

The Royal chose a different look for the gala event in the evening. He looked dapper wearing a green velvet jacket, black bowtie, and trousers.
His style change was noticed by singer Rita Ora who complimented him. William’s cousin Princess Beatrice also attended the gala to celebrate Centrepoint’s half-century of success.
The charity has helped men and women aged 16 to 25 to lead independent lives after being homelessness. Beatrice wore a long black jacket over a floral dress; accessorizing it with a whimsical headband.
