Smiles all around in a royal winter wonderland

What better way to take advantage of the winter cold than to grab the kids, snap on some skis and hit the slopes?

Both the Dutch and the Danish royal families did just that this season, enjoying some family time in the Alps.

But despite the picture-perfect backdrop, it was the royal children - all smiles and cheer - who stole the show.

A true family affair, Queen Beatrix chose Lech, Austria to gather the entire clan (pictured) for their ski outing.
