Following the release of new Cambridge family photo album in the French Alps, we look back at the royals' fond love of the snow!
They're the relaxed snaps the world can't stop talking about! From Princess Charlotte's adorable pink beanie to Prince George's trademark pout, and of course William and Kate's competitive side as they have a snow fight.
Indeed, the slopes hold a special place for the Cambridges and it's no surprise their first holiday as a family of four was here.
In a case of history repeating itself, almost 25 years ago, Prince William and his younger brother Prince Harry joined their mum, Princess Diana, for a half-term skiing holiday in Austria.
No doubt the 33-year-old royal wants to honour his late mother's love of skiing and create precious moments for his little ones.
"This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow. It was very special and fun short holiday for the family, and they are grateful that (PA photographer) John Stillwell was able to capture the moment so well. The Duke and Duchess hope people enjoy the photos," Kensington Palace explained as they released the six new images.
