William, 37, then asked: "Why does Claudia never dance?!" to which she hilariously replied: "I'm too creaky!"
Centrepoint is a charity that is close to Prince William's heart. Joining as a patron in 2005, the royal opened Apprenticeship House on Wednesday morning, which will support young displaced people in their journey towards independent living. The Duke has a history of showing his commitment to helping get people off the street, and strives to raise awareness of London's problem with homelessness.

Prince William was all smiles at the charity event on Wednesday 

Before opening the new building, William visited the house and chatted away to residents. A passion instilled in him by his mother, Princess Diana took William and brother Harry to meet homeless people in South London on one occasion, so that they could better understand the poverty that others experience. The cause stayed close to William's heart, and he inherited his patronship in 2005.
