William and Kate found themselves battling in the snowy setting of the French Alps when they took their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte on a short skiing break.

The trip was the first time the family of four had been on holiday together and the Cambridges have released a series of photographs to mark the event.

John Stillwell, the royal photographer for Britain’s Press Association, was invited to take the pictures, which include snaps of William and Kate having a snowball fight.

“It was very special and fun short holiday for the family, and they are grateful that John Stillwell was able to capture the moment so well. The Duke and Duchess hope people enjoy the photos,” the palace spokesperson said, in a statement carried by the London Evening Standard.

The Duke and Duchess are both avid skiers, and news of their budding relationship first splashed across British tabloids back in 2004, after they were pictured hitting the slopes at the Swiss resort of Klosters.
