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!
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.

I instantly fell for this fantastic tri-color skirt worn by Julia Mancuso after her runs in Schladming. The Swedish brand Houdini is responsible for this skirt named Sleepwalker. It is perfect to throw on over a speed suit — or more pedestrian garments such as base layer or ski pants.
By far, this is my favorite of the insulated skirts I have seen – the relaxed silhouette looks extra cozy and the styling is the hippest with a little more sass than all the others. Speaking of sass, Julia is never short on style and effortlessly owned this look.
Over the past several years, nearly everything I have found inspiring — and appealing to buy and wear myself – has been of Swedish design: Peak Performance, Hestra, Dr. Zipe and now Houdini. I like what I see and am excited to have a new apparel brand to follow. The Sleepwalker skirt is sold out this season – but will be on the top of my list next winter!
I love how they announced the start of Ted’s runs with “It’s Ligety time”. Yes, it was. It is. Not since Jean-Claude Killy in 1968 – 45 years ago – has there been a triple world champion — incredible. Congratulations, Ted!
