Prince William has revealed the Cambridge family's unexpected morning ritual, which involves Princess Charlotte showing off her dancing skills.

During a special Christmas episode of Apple Fitness+'s audio podcast series Time to Walk, the Duke of Cambridge said the six-year-old royal, known for taking private ballet lessons, uses breakfast time to go 'completely crazy'.

So much so that her brother, Prince Louis, three, ends up following her around trying to emulate his older sister.

Speaking of his and Kate Middleton's three children, including eldest son Prince George, eight, the duke said that there's even been disputes between Charlotte and George as to what song gets played in the morning.

The children's clear love for dancing to music in the early hours has meant that Charlotte and George now take turns to pick their preferred song.

'Most mornings there's a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning,' Prince William said, before adding: 'George gets his go, then Charlotte gets her go. Such is the clamour for the music.'

When it comes to specific songs the young royals enjoy dancing to, Columbian singer Shakira's 2010 hit Waka Waka is up there with one of the songs the kids are 'loving' right now.

'There's a lot of hip movements going along. There's a lot of dressing up,' Prince William also said of his children's dancing antics during the podcast.

'Charlotte, particularly, is running around the kitchen in her dresses and ballet stuff. It's a really happy moment where the children just enjoy dancing, messing around, and, and singing.'

Learning of the news that she was a favourite in the royal household, Shakira recently tweeted: 'I’m so pleased you like my music Princess Charlotte.'

In addition to Waka Waka, Prince William also revealed that he plays Tina Turner's 1989 hit 'The Best' which his late mother Princess Diana used to play in the car as a away to combat him and brother Prince Harry's anxieties ahead of going back to school.

The Duchess of Cambridge recently launched the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood as a way to raise awareness of and highlight how important the early days of a child's life is in shaping their future being.

Giving a speech about the centre, based at the Royal Foundation offices at Kensington Palace, the duchess said she hopes we can 'transform lives for generations to come. Because I truly believe big change starts small'.
