Prince William and Catherine’s Courchevel trip
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their children skiing in Courchevel in France last week.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine flew to the French Alps for a mini vacation with Prince George, two and Princess Charlotte, 10 months, on Thursday (03.03.16) but refused to say exactly where they stayed.
However, the Daily Mail reports that the family of four stayed in the upmarket village in the Les Trois Vallées ski region which is popular with celebrities.
A source told the newspaper: “‘I saw a beautiful picture on a mobile phone of them enjoying lunch.
“They were just eating, that’s it. It was in a mountain restaurant. I am from Courchevel and I know the mountain behind.”
They were also spotted dining at Le Pilatus restaurant, with an employee saying: “They were here Saturday or Sunday, I can’t remember exactly. They had a small table, just for four or five people. No one bothered them.”
It is likely that their children’s nanny Maria Borrallo joined the family on their trip as both William and Catherine are experienced skiers and were no doubt keen to get on the slopes.
A message on the Kensington Palace Twitter page read: “This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children have played in the snow.”
