    The royal’s "participation" in the performance made people immediately take to social media to share their impressions.

    Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton were enjoying the Royal Variety Performance, when Miranda Hart, famous comedian, who was hosting the show, took the Duke of Cambridge by surprise.

    She was talking to the young cast of Annie, when one of the actors implored Prince William to try galloping, which is Miranda’s signature move at her eponymous BBC series Miranda.

    "Please sir, will you gallop with us?" the girl asked.

    The Duke of Cambridge seemed to feel shy at first, holding his face in his hands, but then the prince rose from his seat and started galloping, which left the Duchess of Cambridge giggling. The entire audience burst into laughter and praised the royal’s willingness to participate.

    Predictably, Prince William’s “scene” couldn’t go unnoticed on social media:

    Commenting on the show later, Hart said: "I did apologize to him at the end and he said he’d practice his galloping. I thought he was wonderful in joining in. I forgot to get him to knight me with a lightsaber but maybe another time."
