Are you ready to see Prince William channel his inner goofball?

Prince William is already a major international celebrity. It's not like he needed us to love him more, and yet — and yet — he pretty much naturally melts hearts with everything he does. It only helps that he's becoming more and more of a lighthearted, goofy dad as the years go on. Honestly, it's a really good look for him.

Once again, William has shown us just how goofy he can be. On Tuesday night, William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, were in the audience at the 2017 Royal Variety Show, and, needless to say, they stole the show a little bit. Specifically, William stole the show when he demonstrated his "Miranda gallop," which is a running joke from the TV show of the 2017 Royal Variety host, comedian Miranda Hart. William's a natural at it, of course, and was totally game to show the rest of the audience.

Obviously, everyone died watching this unfold. A thunderous laugh erupted as William acquiesced to one of the young performers onstage who asked him to join in their fun (read: performing the Miranda gallop). Viewers took to Twitter to shower praise on William as well.

The only person who apparently wasn't impressed with William's dancing was William himself.

"I did apologize to him at the end and he said he'd practice his galloping," Hart said after the show. "I thought he was wonderful in joining in. I forgot to get him to knight me with a lightsaber but maybe another time."
