(CBS) Prince William and Kate are thinking of the less fortunate this holiday season.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit Wednesday to Centrepoint, a charity that helps homeless young people. William, who is patron of the organization, made his wife laugh when he started dancing during the visit.

The couple dressed in casual clothes for the visit to Centrepoint's Camberwell Foyer center in east London. Kate donned a turtleneck dress by Ralph Lauren, paired with a black belt, tights and boots. William ditched his traditional suit for a blue sweater and pants.

During the visit, the royals sat in on a group session of the organization's "Workwise" program, according to the Daily Mail, which helps prepare participants to find a job. They also took part in a healthy cooking class, making low-fat mince pies and gingerbread men.

They ended the visit, the paper added, by watching a performance by the winner of "Centrepoint's Got Talent."

William and Kate, both 29, got all dressed up earlier this week to attend the Sun Military Awards, where they were joined by Prince Harry. The three will soon travel to Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham estate for the royals' annual Christmas celebration - reports say the monarch and Prince Phillip have invited 27 royals to attend, making it the largest gathering in years.
