“My goodness, it’s the guy’s birthday. Lighten up!” the actress declared. “It’s the guy’s birthday, let him do what he does.”

The other ladies also agreed with Goldberg, as they noted how the royal family has been going through it as of late due to Kate Middleton and King Charles' cancer diagnoses.

Sara Haines also praised William for letting loose.

“I’m a big believer in ‘dance like no one’s watching,’” Haines, 46, said. “That’s the time, even if you have to close your eyes when you’re dancing. There are a lot of times when I wouldn’t want anyone to see me dance. Everyone is watching him.”

Alyssa Farah Griffin exclaimed, “Go off, future king. I loved it. I wasn’t expecting big moves out of William, so I like that he gave them.”
