Prince William is obviously a good sport. The newlywed amused his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, when he showed off his dance moves at a royal visit to a charity he sponsors.

While at Centrepoint's Camberwell Foyer, a hostel for homeless teens, the Duke made headlines when he did the "swag dance" with one of the center's residents, 18-year-old Vanessa Boateng. Vanessa, who had won the organization's "Centrepoint's Got Talent" contest, had already performed for the visiting royals.

"You dust your shoulders off twice," Boateng instructed William, who performed the routine.

As a giggly Kate looked on, William gamely brushed off his shoulders -- one of the dance's key moves.

Dressed casually in a sweater and corduroy trousers, 29-year-old William and Kate, who once again stunned in a form-fitting knit sweater dress, seemed in good spirits during the visit. They even made mince pies and gingerbread cookies with some of the youth.

"Does this mean you're going to make me mince pies when we get back [home]?" Kate jokingly asked, which William answered with a chuckle.

Centrepoint is an organization dear to William's heart. His mother was the charity's patron, and in 2005, William added it to his list of personal charity projects to sponsor.
