We've rounded up some of the best pictures of the royals in chic skiwear on their winter holidays over the years...

Looking gloriously '90s, King Charles and his eldest son stopped for photographers during their trip to Klosters in 1994.

The Prince and Princess of Wales

The first documented skiing holiday of Prince William and then-girlfriend Kate Middleton saw them using a T-bar drag lift whilst in Klosters in 2008. Three years later, the pair would tie the knot.

We love this shot of Princess Eugenie rocking a neon look during another visit to Verbier in 2011.

Princess Diana

Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie

Isn't this picture of Prince William helping his baby cousin, Princess Beatrice, with the collar of her ski suit just the sweetest? The four cousins were snapped during an official photocall during a family holiday to Klosters in 1995.
