A new viral video on TikTok highlighting Kate Middleton’s impressive dance moves over the years has garnered more than 700,000 plays and climbing.
Unlike her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, a lifelong ballet aficionado, the Princess of Wales has no formal dance skills.
However, Kate has demonstrated at several royal engagements that she knows how to let loose on the dance floor when the occasion calls for it.

TikTok’s viral video shows Kate dancing fun, lighthearted steps like the “Hokey Pokey” during a visit to Cornwall.
It also includes the now famous “princess shuffle” that Kate did while repositioning herself during a photo shoot in Denmark.
More exotic dances from Kate’s royal tours abroad are also featured, such as a traditional Garifuna dance she joined during her trip to Belize with Prince William earlier this year.
Fans have flooded the comments praising the princess’ moves, with one writing “Princess Kate definitely can move, such a beautiful lady.” Another netizen said, “She is so beautiful. Future Queen of England. Diana would have been so proud of you.”
The video underscores Kate’s growing prominence over the past year since becoming Princess of Wales, and her continued efforts to connect with the public through both serious and lighthearted moments.
In the words of one fan, “She’s perfect” when it comes to combining her royal role with the likability that has long endeared her to the world.
