The Yorks have been enjoying winter holidays in Verbier ever since the Princesses were little, although it has been reported that Sarah and her former husband, Prince Andrew, have put their luxury abode, Chalet Helora, on the market for £18.6m, six years after buying it. The property is said to boast fantastic views over the Bagnes valley.

The Duchess first visited Verbier, in the canton of Valais, when she was 16 but started skiing at the age of three. She also briefly worked as a chalet girl before joining the royal family.

"Since that first visit, I have regularly returned for holidays to Verbier," Sarah previously told Swiss newspaper Le Nouvelliste. "My family has followed me over the years. We feel free and happy, we feel at home. Anyway, I call it 'my home'."

The Duchess launched her Storytime With Fergie And Friends YouTube channel at the start of the first lockdown in 2020. The project sees her reading a traditional children's story daily, as well as sharing arts and crafts ideas and fun recipes.
