Wills in Happy form at Paris soiree after Swiss sojourn

By Tony Jones

The Duke of Cambridge has been reminded of his controversial Swiss ski weekend after a French group performed one of the songs featured during his "lads only" break.

As Kate dazzled Paris in a stunning dress during a star-studded dinner staged in the royal couple's honour, William was left listening to a group of young performers belt out the Pharrell Williams hit Happy.

It featured in video footage from his break in Verbier when he was captured "dad dancing" in a club, but Wills, making his first official trip to the French capital, showed no sign of embarrassment.

The royals were guests at a dinner staged at the residence of the UK Ambassador to France and the Duke sat between film stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Audrey Tautou. Kate, who was sat opposite between film star Jean Reno and yachtsman Alex Thomson, wore an ice blue floor-length gown by Jenny Packham.
