Kate Middleton and Prince William Learn to DJ in Adelaide, Australia: Duke of Cambridge Says He Likes House Music
Royal DJs in the house y'all! Prince William and Kate Middleton stormed the DJ booth at a community-run music center geared towards youth in the Adelaide suburb of Elizabeth, Australia on Wednesday, April 23. Dressed impeccably, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took turns spinning on the turntables, and oh, how the tables turned!
While Prince William, 31, struggled to get the hang of scratching some vinyl, his wife Kate was a natural! Middleton took to the tables with some hesitation at first -- "William's got lots more experience than I have," she quipped -- but the Duchess quickly caught on.
Laughing over her success behind the booth, the Duchess gave an adorable thumbs up to the crowd as the audience cheered in response.
As usual, the Duchess, 32, looked resplendent in a blush pink ensemble by Alexander McQueen, which included a long-sleeve peplum top featuring a plunging neckline and matching skirt. Kate paired her polished outfit with her favorite nude L.K. Bennett pumps.
"She was fantastic, but he can fly a helicopter," DJ Shane Peterer remarked. "So horses for courses."
The royal couple was met by 15,000 cheering fans before they made their way inside the Northern Sound System on Wednesday. There, both Will and Kate met with young rappers, dancers, and other musicians. The Duke spoke to Mark Reilly, a 19-year-old wheelchair-bound rapper, who asked William what type of music he liked. "I quite like house music," the future King responded. "I like a bit of rock 'n' roll and R&B. I'm not a big heavy metal fan -- I'd like to be but I'm not." (For the record, EDM/pop singer Ellie Goulding sang "Lights" at the couple's royal wedding back in April 2011 -- and the bride and groom danced!)
Will and Kate also spoke to a group of young locals, ages 14 to 20, who shared some of the issues they faced while growing up in the neighborhood. "They were really awesome," said Daniel Niutta, 20. "They stayed and chatted to us for a bit. It was quite a lot of fun," added Niutta, who has suffered problems with depression and bullying.
Though the couple did not dance inside the studios, Kate mischievously suggested at one point that her husband wanted to break it down on the floor. "Do you reckon I'll be able get him to dance?" 26-year-old dancer Angie Kaoschk asked the Duchess. Middleton replied, "Secretly, he'd love to try." William then interjected, amidst the rippling laughter within the room, "He said: 'It would take a few drinks to do that.'"
