Kate Middleton and Prince William, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, traveled to the French Alps this past weekend for a few days away in a snowy setting. While there they posed for some new family portraits.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace tells the media of the royal family, "This was the first time either of the children had played in the snow."

The spokesperson also confirmed that Kate Middleton and Prince William wanted to share their new photos with the public.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family," the spokesperson said. "The images show Their Royal Highnesses enjoying a short skiing holiday with their children in the French Alps."

"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 John Stillwell [The PA photographer] was able to capture the moment so well," the spokesperson concluded.

Prince William and Kate Middleton typically travel to Mustique each year for their family getaway, joined by members of Kate's family. This year they opted for the cold, snowy weather instead, and it looks like everyone believes it was an excellent choice.
