Prince William a 'good sport' as he gets roasted at comedy gala

Prince William
Prince William was all laughs at the comedy gala.

If you’re in the need for a new charades partner, Prince William might be your man.

The royal attended the star-studded Royal Variety Performance with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge in November and new video captured on the night shows Kate in a fit of laughter as William is roped into doing an impression of a horse for the audience. 

Host Miranda Hart made plenty of light-hearted jabs at the royals’ expense, at one point asking the whole audience to recreate a ‘posh party’ and do their best impression of posh laughter and whispering before roping the prince into a number of her skits. 

William laughed along as he was forced to shout out Hart’s catchphrase “such fun!” when on command and jumped out of chair to imitate a galloping horse, much to the audiences amusement.

His horsey antics were immediately praised on social media channels, many happy that he had been such a good sport about the whole thing. They took to Twitter to heap their admiration on the Prince.
