Prince William has been pictured letting loose on a ski holiday with friends, including partaking in some questionable 'dad dancing' and it seems his wife Kate is less than pleased.

The Prince has attracted criticism in the British press after skipping a Commonwealth Day service earlier this week in order to go skiing with friends.

However, source told Vanity Fair that the Duchess of Cambridge is "less than pleased" with his antics.

"It was William’s choice to go away, but make no mistake Kate wears the trousers in their marriage, and she won’t be happy with William’s antics. She thought his partying days and larking around with the boys was a thing of the past. I imagine she’ll find this humiliating and William will have come in for a pasting,” a source told the publication.

Footage emerged this week of William dancing in a nightclub in the popular Farinet nightclub in Verbier with his friends and a mystery woman.

The boys-only trip comes before the pair travel to Paris for a state visit on Friday.

It is the first time the 34-year-old has visited the city since the late Princess Diana died there on August 31, 1997.

During their two-day stay, the couple will attend eight engagements as they begin to take a more hands-on role within their royal duties.

"Their Royal Highness' visit is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office," a statement issued by Kensington Palace confirmed.

"Full details of the visit will be announced in due course, but the itinerary will include a reception for young French leaders from a variety of fields, a formal dinner at the residence of Her Majesty's Ambassador and attendance at the Wales v France Six Nations test at the Stade de France."

Their trip to France comes weeks after Kate made her first solo trip to the Netherlands in October and is believed to be part of Britain's post-Brexit charm offensive.

They are believed to be staying at the new British ambassador to France Edward Llewellyn's home.
