With all the excitement this week about the royal baby’s arrival – here are some skiing royals:
1/7/1939 Press Photo: St. Moritz, Switzerland. . . Escorted by the Marquis of Milford Haven, Princess Alexandria of Greece, Royal Coat of Arms embroidered on her ski jacket, is shown setting out for a ski jaunt at St. Moritz, where the society winter season is now in full swing. Truly an INCREDIBLE jacket!
2/25/1962 AP Press Photo: In skiing, there’s an unwritten rule: Women must carry their own equipment. Iran’s Queen Farah is no exception. She happily carries her skis to the slope of Abe-Ail resort near Theran for an outing with her sports-loving husband, the Shah of Iran.

3/3/1977 Press Photo: Twenty-year-old Princess Caroline and twelve-year-old Princess Stéphanie ski in the Berner Oberland, Switzerland. I can’t get enough of Caroline’s tomboy style: graphic sweatshirt from Tournier Sports Monaco paired with Ellesse Jet Pants!
And of course. . . HRH Prince George of Cambridge’s grandparents, Charles and Di.
I think it is safe to assume that the newest little royal will follow in the tracks of his family and in a few years be skiing the slopes of Davos Klosters and the like.
