A story for the ages.

As Royal drama and the backlash from Prince Harry’s tell-all (some would even say tell-too-much) memoir continues to populate headlines, there’s a new bizarre Windsor family story to throw into the mix.

Arthur Gourounlian allegedly gyrated with Princess of Wales Kate Middleton in a London nightclub.

Arthur, who you may know as a Dancing With The Stars Ireland judge and the husband of Brian Dowling shared the story on 2FM’s Jennifer Zamparelli show, encouraged by a completely enthralled Jen.

The dancer recalled:

Years ago when I was a dancer, I used to go partying a lot and there’s a place on the King’s Road, there’s a club, I don’t know if it’s still open.

I was actually dancing and then there was this lady who was on the dance floor.

She grabbed me and I was dancing, and then I was behind her… And I was gyrating with her…

It was Kate Middleton.

Watch the interview below:

Positively giddy, Arthur continues: “Oh my god, I can’t believe it”, before assuring “She was on a break though [from William], remember when they had that break?”

No harm, no foul Kate.

Naturally, 2FM and Dancing With The Stars host Jennifer was curious about the Princesses moves, and asked: “Was she a good dancer?” to which Arthur replied diplomatically “She was okay”, before following up with “she can move. She was… you know.. moving”. Say no more Arthur, say no more.
