Even royals gotta cut loose sometimes.

Prince William showed off a few hip-hop moves today during his visit with Kate Middleton to a homeless shelter in southeast London, where the cute-as-ever couple also took part in a baking class and helped make cookies for a resident's 18th birthday.

Later it was off to join Queen Elizabeth II and family at their traditional Christmas gathering place of Sandringham, but first, Kate and Will spread some good cheer closer to home.

The Camberwell Foyer center where they went today is run by Centrepoint, a leading charity benefiting homeless youths, which runs a number of social-service programs around the United Kingdom. Princess Diana used to take her boys with her on visits to Centrepoint shelters, and now William is the organization's patron.

According to the Daily Mail, Will and Kate met with residents, sat in on a group session devoted to preparing people in the program to enter the workforce, donned aprons to make gingerbread and mince pies in the kitchen and watched a performance from the winner of the in-house competition, "Camberwell's Got Talent."

Will kept it casual in cords and a sweater, while Kate wore her apron over a Ralph Lauren jersey dress—cinched at the waist—and knee-high black suede boots.

Of their royal patron's visit to the hostel, Centrepoint chief executive Sey Obakin told the Mail, "It is a powerful motivator and Prince William is a keen and passionate patron."
