The Countess met volunteers and local people supported by The Lighthouse and saw how their new hub is supporting the community by offering free clothing, equipment and toys for local children, families escaping domestic abuse and refugee families in the area.

Hands-on royal Sophie previously volunteered at their food bank during the pandemic so it's an organisation that is well-known to her.

The family-of-four were seen hitting the slopes with a group of friends, with Edward in a red ski jacket and Sophie and Lady Louise twinning in navy coats.
