Prince William and Kate Middleton took Prince George and Princess Charlotte skiing last week in the French Alps and released photos.
William and Kate took George and Charlotte to the Alps where the kids played in the snow for the first time. Though the Cambridges went in secret and did not do a photocall like Diana and Charles used to do and some of the European royals do now, they did take one photographer and posed for photos (on March 3).
Kensington Palace said:
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family, enjoying a short skiing holiday with their children in the French Alps. The Duke and Duchess invited the Press Association’s Royal Photographer John Stillwell to take the photographs earlier in the week. This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow. It was very special and fun short holiday for the family, and they are grateful that John Stillwell was able to capture the moment so well.”
We finally got that photo of William holding Charlotte that we’ve been waiting for. Charlotte’s got some tiny teeth growing in on the bottom.
I’m actually shocked to see William and Kate goofing around with each other here. They are usually so staid and grumpy looking with each other. These are probably my favorite photos from this set since it shows movement and playfulness while the others are a bit boring. Nice, but boring. I wish they’d have shown us the kids playing in the snow. But oh well. Also, I wonder why Kate took off her gloves for the top photo? It’s the only one she’s not wearing gloves in. Odd.
Overall, I like these photos. I wish we had gotten pictures of the kids playing in the snow, but the ones we did get are nice.
These photos don’t absolve William and Kate their laziness, though. Let’s just be clear on that.
