It’s snow time! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoy a skiing trip with George and Charlotte


    The royal couple have been enjoying some downtime with their little ones on a snowy break in the French Alps 

    Kensington Palace has shared new photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first break as a family of four, frolicking in the snow alongside Prince George, two, and 10-month-old Princess Charlotte. The short holiday – which took place in the French Alps – was charmingly captured by the Press Association’s John Stillwell, who the couple invited along to take some private photos.

    William and Kate, who are both seasoned skiers, wrapped up a smiling George and Charlotte in cute snow suits and woollen hats as they posed for a series of shots and enjoyed family snowball fights in front of their chalet. It was the first time the children had experienced playing in the snow. And while William sports a £330 jacket from high-end ski label Spyder in the photos, little George plays around in his Mountain Warehouse snow suit which parents can snap up on the high street for just £24.99.

    “It was a very special and fun short holiday for the family, and they are grateful that John Stillwell was able to capture the moment so well,” said a Kensington Palace spokesman.

    We love the super-cute snaps – one for next year’s Christmas card, perhaps?
