Royal Family shares first vacation photos with Princess Charlotte and Prince George

WATCH ABOVE: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children George and Charlotte spent some time on the snowy slopes last week.


Prince William and Kate Middleton have released six intimate photographs of their first vacation in the French Alps as a family of four.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pictured with a bundled up Prince George, 2, and 10-month-old Princess Charlotte, who’s sporting two bottom teeth in a picture with her doting dad.


“This was … the first time either of the children have played in the snow,” Kensington Palace wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

“It was very special and a fun short holiday for the family.”

The royal couple invited Press Association photographer John Stillwell to capture the trip.

He managed to snap a few candid shots of the couple goofing around in the snow.

The two are both known to be fond of ski trips. William and Kate’s romance became public in March 2004 when they were pictured together on a Swiss skiing holiday.

In 1998, William spent some time on the Canadian slopes, in Whistler B.C.

Prince William, Prince Charles and Prince Harry were all smiles as they paused for a photo-op on the slopes of Whistler Mountain, B.C. on Apr. 6, 1998. The trio were on a three-day ski holiday in Whistler, BC, their first vacation together since the death of the boys’ mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, who died the summer before.

It looks like it’s a tradition the couple’s kids have happily embraced, even if they might be a little young for the full experience.

Here’s a look back at other photos Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared of their children:
