In a tribute to Erick Morillo, who died last week, party organiser Tony Truman shared a story about how the future king once partied in Ibiza to the late DJ's music.

"A story just came to me about Eric that I will never forget many moons ago (12) or so years I think," he wrote on Instagram.

"HRH Prince William came to Ibiza & I had the pleasure to help arrange his party plans while on the Island with Kate & their entourage. I asked Eric & @francisco_ferrerfr to look after him @pachaofficial for Eric's @subliminalrecords night. They obviously done a great job as the next day I get a call from HRH William (like u casually do) and Will says thank you Tony I was not a fan of house music until last night & your friend Eric was amazing now I love it.

"I was blown away not just by Will casually calling me, but that Eric had got the Royal RnB loving posse into House Music. William might be the Prince but that night Eric was the king[sic]," he said of the musician, known for his smash hit I Like To Move It.

According to People, William and Kate, along with Pippa and James Middleton, visited Ibiza back in 2006. They seemed to have had a good time too - when they weren't hitting the night clubs, the royals were photographed sunbathing on a luxury speedboat.
