Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, have gone to a ski getaway on their first holiday as a family of four to the French Alps early this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were captured by Press Association photographer, John Stillwell, during the memorable family vacation, that was not only the first one with the whole family, but also the first time Princess Charlotte and Prince George ever played in the snow, as reported by CNN.

“This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow,” the palace said in a Tweet that was accompanied by a photo of the royal family in the snow.

Even the two young children appeared to have cooperated for the emblematic photos, as they smile and acted like a true role model for all babies and big brothers posing for a photo. When the time for the adults came, the lovely married couple showed some moments of true fun while playing romanticly in the snow.

The Duchess wore in their trip a white E+O ski jacket with a fur hood, paired with red ski trousers, the same outfit she wore to the resort in 2010, when the couple holidayed with her parents, as reported by The Telegraph.

An unannounced trip

Apparently, the couple had not had the opportunity to come back for their quiet space since before Prince George was born. On Wednesday night, the family flew to the Alps to celebrate Mother’s Day together before returning on Sunday night.

The couple did not reveal any intention to go on vacation, as they choose to go privately and unannounced. The palace would not reveal how they travelled, but it is thought likely they took a private jet.

A kensington Palace spokesman said that the Dutch and the Duchess were “delighted” to share their photos of the family trip on their return and were grateful that the moment had been captured so well. “It was a very special and fun short holiday for the family,” he added.
