Prince William and girlfriend Kate Middleton shredding the Alps

The heir to the British throne, Prince William, is currently vacationing in the ski resort of Courcheval in the Alps. He’s not alone either, enjoying the slopes with girlfriend Kate Middleton and her parents, Carol and Mike. While off the slopes, Prince William and Kate may seem all love-dovey, but when they clamp on those ski boots, the competition becomes fierce! The two reportedly race each other down every run, not giving anything up without a fight!

Off the runs however, they seem to be in a good place. A friend said, “I don’t think I have ever seen them so in love.”

Queen Elizabeth encouraged the prince to keep a low profile on this trip so citizens don’t think the Royal family is living in extreme luxury while the rest of the UK is suffering financially. While they’re not staying in the same type of chalet they normally would…it’s still pretty luxurious. Another source added, “William has booked a chalet which is out of this world. It’s not the place they usually stay, but William has decided he wants to do something different”.
