William Whisks Kate to the Alps, Why the Queen is Protective of Kate + More

Hello Duchess Kate fans,
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. 


Swiss Chalets


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!

  3. Lovely comments from Edward about Catherine.

    If people learn from the past - that is a very good thing. The entire British royal family has stepped up to the plate and learned that to support the new members ultimately strengthens the entire family.

  9. Royalfan and Monica - Things have changed *dramatically* since Princess Diana's early days. It's quite amazing really. I do hope William and Kate have a wonderful time wherever they go. Verbier is the rumoured destination but there has been no confirmation.

  10. It is so nice to hear that the royal family love the Duchess. She has brought a breath of freah air to the royal family. With her Prince by her side, the royal family will shine for many years to come. I realy do beleive that the royal family has learn from their mistakes with Princess Di and were not going to let that happen again with the beautiful Duchess and that her Prince was not going to let it happen either.
    I hope wherever the beautiful couple are, they have a great time together.They need the time together since they were apart for so long. Wish we would get some pictures but then again they need their private time.
    Thanks again Charlotte for this wonderful blog and for keeping us up to date.

  14. I really like Duchess Catherine and her prince William. They are a wonderful couple and they help the Monarchy to start a new area by approaching both the Monarchy and the british people around the world in a strong and natural unity.
    I'm so happy to see how prince William and the Queen are very protective and love the Duchess. Catherin Duchess of Cambridge has helped clean the worse image of the british Monarchy since princess Diana tragedy.

    Thanks Queen. Thanks prince William. We love the Duchess.
