Kensington Palace has released photos of Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and their children George and Charlotte on a ski holiday in the French Alps.
The six images published on Monday show William, Kate, two-year-old George and 10-month-old Charlotte on the snowy slopes last week.
The palace says it was “their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow.”
Two photos show the royal couple having a playful snowball fight.
The release of the pictures follows a media policy established when William and his brother Prince Harry were children: privacy in exchange for agreed-upon photo opportunities at birthdays and during school holidays.
That allows the princes to have — by royal standards — a relatively normal upbringing.
