The Cambridge's have been keeping a low profile since William's return. It is being widely reported that William has whisked Kate away on a skiing holiday to make up for missing Valentine's Day. The 29 year old Prince has allegedly booked the romantic mini break. Last year the couple cancelled a ski trip over fears it would not be appropriate in these recessionary times. Kate has been incredibly busy performing solo duties and William spent fifty days in the Falklands, so I think it's a well deserved break. A source said
"William missed Kate terrible when he was away. They spent Valentine's Day apart and he has been thinking for some time how to make it up to his wife. He want a reunion in the most romantic possible fashion. They've had some brilliant times skiing, and William decided a getaway in Switzerland, where they can wear goggles and hats and go around unnoticed, would be perfect. Kate was delighted when he eventually told her about his plans and cannot wait for the pair to spend some quality time together."
We first saw the couple publicly kiss in 2006 whilst enjoying a skiing holiday. A rather romantic coincidence.
Let's take a look at a newly built chalet to get a glimpse of the couple's accommodation and surroundings.
The Chalet Frater is stylishly furnished to a high standard. The interior is bright and spacious. It features a patio with a built in BBQ and is only a five minute walk from the best restaurant in town.
The open plan kitchen, dining room and living room provides a relaxing, cosy setting.
The breathtaking view faces the Grand Muveran, south of the Swiss alps. I hope the couple have a wonderful time!
I expect we will be able to gauge the veracity of these reports very soon as the couple were spotted on a flight today.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed William and Kate joined the Middletons for a skiing trip 100 miles from France.
Prince Edward has revealed her Majesty's true feelings about Kate. The Monarch has been thrilled and surprised by Kate's huge popularity and is determined to shield her. The Prince spoke candidly whilst chatting to guests at the Lord's Taverners' Umpires dinner at the Hyde Park Hilton last week.
"Catherine has taken to royal life like a duck to water. She's very gracious and the family is very proud of her. It was never going to be easy for Catherine as the whole world is watching her every move. William is very protective of her, he's grown up with the attention but Catherine hasn't. We were all thrilled to welcome Catherine into the family because she's lovely. Very charming indeed and a perfect companion for William."
Kate has grown into her role as 'Duchess of Cambridge' over the past years and it is wonderful to see it has not gone unnoticed by senior royals. Lovely words by Prince Edward.
Prince William and Duchess Kate have been immortalised as cartoon characters for a special one off Wembley edition of much loved comic Beano. Prince William is often seen at Wembley in his role as the present of the football association. The artists have drawn Kate wearing a pink suit.
It has been announced William, Kate and Harry will join her Majesty and Prince Philip on June 5 for a carriage procession through London to mark the Diamond jubilee. The Royals will also appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace. Looking forward to the jubilee engagements!
