The new royalty, Kate and Prince William stopped by the Polynesian island of Tuvalu. Here, they danced. For Kate it was great, for her husband, eh... not so great. Racked National has watched the video of this interesting moment closely and pinpointed each cultural reference as they come out in the dance. The influences range from Sir Mix A Lot's "Jump on It" as demonstrated by The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to Harry Potter. [Racked]
