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.
Gretchen Bleiler took 3rd in Women’s Halfpipe with style wearing pieces from her signature Oakley GB Collection.
Burton did a pretty fantastic job with the tie-dye event jackets. Tricia Byrnes does a fantastic job at everything she does, which is a lot, including winning this shindig when she was 17! (I’m coveting her stack of old-school lift tickets from Mt. Baker.)
Hannah Teter happy with 2nd place.
