Prince William and Kate Middleton have released six intimate photographs of their first vacation in the French Alps as a family of four.
Charlotte is seen smiling broadly as she is held up by her father, with a wintry backdrop to the image.
Now a mental health campaigner, Benjamin has praised William and Kate for the efforts they are making in addressing the issue, and joined Neil to meet the royal couple and share their own experiences.
It was the first time the children ever had played in the snow, a spokeswoman from Kensington Palace said.
William and Kate have a well-known competitive streak and the Duchess was determined to win the snowball fight with the Duke.
It comes after Prince William has been accused by some newspapers of shirking royal engagements, with the Sun demanding: “Where’s Willy?” They look so in love.
The Belgian and Dutch royals have each participated in playful photocells during their recent winter getaways, and may have inadvertently inspired the Duke and Duchess to follow suit.
Beside family photos, William and Kate were photographed frolicking in the snow.
“The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all over the world and they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do”, the palace said in a statement.
In this undated photo released Sunday Nov. 29, 2015, by Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, showing Princess Charlotte with her cuddly toy dog, at Anmer Hall in Sandringham, England.
Both William and Kate have enjoyed skiing since they were children and want George and Charlotte to be good at the sport too.
At 10 months old, Princess Charlotte wore a pink beanie and snow jacket, while George was not hard to miss in his bright red beanie topped with a pom.
And let’s face it – those cute photos of the family of four throwing snowballs were definitely worth the bad press.
