Inside Prince William and Kate Middleton's ski getaway

We take you inside the remote Canadian ski lodge where William and Kate enjoyed one of their most romantic holidays ever.

Looking around at the idyllic snowy peaks it’s easy to see what attracted Kate Middleton and Prince William to the stunning Banff National Park.
In April 2011, the then newlywed Wills and Kate trekked to one of Canada’s remote corners for some privacy and quality time together post-nuptials. The pair found themselves at the rural Skoki lodge which is located off the grid in the Western wilderness of Alberta.
While one may assume that accommodation bereft of running water, electricity and flushing toilets may not be fit for a future King, the down-to-earth royal couple reportedly loved the lodge.
Away from the prying eyes of the media that besieged Wills and Kate at the time of their wedding the pair finally got a chance to relax in the alpine environment and sources say they were fond of taking treks out in cool mountain air.
With only a handful of staff, the lodge’s cluster of cosy cabins are off the beaten track with supplies delivered by skidoo.
The royal guests were apparently delighted by the fact that one of the first people to sign the visitors' book soon after the Lodge opened in 1931 was Lady Jean Rankin, The Queen Mother's lady in waiting, who came on honeymoon for three days and ended up staying for three weeks.
Here’s a peak at the loved-up couples holiday location.
