It was a snowy royal vacation for Prince William and Duchess Kate, who enjoyed a skiing holiday in the French Alps. But this wasn’t just a typical Will and Kate vacay like their grown-up time in Mustique or Provence. This was a vacation with the kids; the Cambridges first holiday as a family of four. And the first time either of the children have played in the snow.
According to the Facebook post, it was a short holiday, and we’re not sure how much skiing was actually done, but could they look any happier? Prince George looks like he’s ready to take on the slopes, or maybe give his sister a snowball battle she’ll never forget. Not that Princess Charlotte would care because she looks absolutely captivated by the fluffy stuff around her.
A royal source told People mag that it’s the first time they’ve been on a vacation abroad and they “had a lovely time.” Will and Kate used to go on skiing holidays often, particularly when they started dating. But then they got married and had kids and, well, any parent knows that those trips tend to happen less and less. And it’s no different for royalty. But let’s enjoy these pics because whether they’re posed shots or totally candid, we can’t get enough of them.
