Skiing with Penguins: Les Gets, France
2/11/1977 Press Photos: PENGUIN SKIERS. . . It is holiday month for children in the winter sport area, and for those young enough and lucky enough from further afield to spend time learning to ski. In this special junior ski enclosure at Les Gets Penguins are supplied as a novelty and as tame pets. They seem to enjoy being with the children and showing off their paces. Some of the Penguins are even fitted with miniature skis and the Penguins’ race is one of the attractions. This young skier (top) is trying to encourage two sporting Penguins by offering them a tastey morsel of fish.

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.
