Prince William may have faced some scrutiny for missing the Commonwealth Day service earlier this week, but the future King isn't letting it get him down. He's sidestepping past the press with a little dad dance.

In a video captured by a fellow clubber at Farinet nightclub at Swiss ski resort Verbier—and obtained by TMZ—Wills can be seen dancing to '90s hip-hop classic 'I Got Five On It.' The footage has since gone viral and been viewed millions of times worldwide. See it for yourself:

The 34-year-old royal has been enjoying a skiing holiday with friends including Guy Pelly, James Meade, and Tom van Straubenzee. His group of chums had been pictured on the slopes earlier in the day with model Sophie Taylor, whose mum has told The Mirror: "She [Sophie] said they met and had a few drinks. She said he was lovely and down to earth."

Taylor's boyfriend British chef Aaron Goodfellow was also at the resort, and described the Prince as a "great guy," telling the paper: "I enjoyed Will's company and he was a great guy."

The Duke of Cambridge was noticeably absent from the Commonwealth festivities on Monday, as was Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The date—which is considered one of the most significant in the royal calendar—includes a service featuring the Commonwealth Games baton setting off from Buckingham Palace ahead of its 388-day relay across almost 150,000 miles. The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Prince Harry were all in attendance

Editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine Ingrid Seward defended Prince William, saying (via Sky News): "I am sure that if he was expected to be (at the Commonwealth Day ceremony) then he would have been."

"I don't see that there was a real need for William to have been present," Seward continued. "He does a huge amount of work, he attends a lot of events and is very dedicatedhe's allowed to have a bit of time off."
