    Britain's Prince William is taking flak for going on a ski holiday instead of attending a major royal engagement with his family.

    Criticism mounted after footage emerged of 34-year-old William busting late-night dance moves in the Verbier, Switzerland, this week.

    It has fueled claims from the tabloid press that the second in line to the throne does not work hard enough. The tabloid Sun used the headline "Throne Idle."

    William was skiing while his 90-year-old grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals attended a Commonwealth Day service in London on Monday.
