Prince William Reportedly In The Dog House With Kate Middleton After Wild Boys Weekend

Prince William is in the dog house. He was slammed in the British press for skipping a Commonwealth Day service earlier this week in order to go skiing with friends, where he was filmed “dad dancing” and partying with friends, which included a few women. But now he’s in serious trouble—with Kate.

Vanity Fair reports that the duchess is “less than pleased” that her husband was carrying on during the boys’ weekend where he was spotted at the Fairnet nightclub in Verbier putting his hand on a mystery woman’s waist while awkwardly singing and dancing.
