Prince William paid a surprising compliment to Prince Harry during his recent trip to Belize, after receiving a comment on his brother's dancing skills.
- Prince William made a rare comment on his brother, Prince Harry, during his recent trip to Belize.
- The Duke of Cambridge has reportedly been on frosty terms with the Duke of Sussex for over a year now, having become 'distant' since Harry's high-profile withdrawal from the Royal Family in 2020.

Prince William and Kate Middleton channeled their inner disco at the start of their week-long Caribbean tour on Sunday, much to the delight of royal fans.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge learned the art of the “punta” at the Garifuna Cultural Centre in Belize, joining locals on the beach for a feel-good dancing festival.
William, 39, didn't hold back as he partnered with 57-year-old Laura Cacho for a jig on the sandy dunes—while Kate held up her floor-length Tory Burch as she bopped to the sound of maracas. After working up an appetite with their killer moves, the couple enjoyed a well-earned taste of the Hudutu broth-style meal that is frequently eaten in the Garifuna culture.
It was during this celebratory event that the future King made a rare comment on his younger brother, Prince Harry. The Duke of Sussex made his own trip to Belize in 2012 as part of a seven-day Caribbean tour in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, visiting many of the same places lined up on William and Kate's itinerary.
Cynthia Ellis-Topsy, ambassador at large for the Garifuna nation, told People magazine that she mentioned the 37-year-old's trip to William during the festive engagement.
"I said to William that when [his brother] Prince Harry came to Belize he was dancing and didn't need encouragement," she revealed. "He is a wild card. William laughed and said, 'Harry's not self-conscious.'"
Prince Harry and Prince William have reportedly been on frosty terms now for over a year, and it looks like they're not about to reconcile any time soon. The Duke of Sussex's relationship with his older brother has been particularly tense in the aftermath of his CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which he and Meghan Markle made allegations of racism against the Royal Family.
It's now understood that Harry is writing a memoir about his experiences growing up in the UK monarchy—a book that's likely to see the ex-pat royal drop further bombshells about his British relatives.
