William, Kate and Harry Arrive In Switzerland

Hello again Duchess Kate readers,

When I published 'Kate Loves: Weddings' this morning I checked my twitter feed and was surprised to see speculation was rife regarding the possibility William and Kate would travel to Switzerland for a wedding and the eagle-eyed @KateWill Watch was correct.

This morning William, Kate, and Harry travelled to the mountains of Grabunden with their friends Harry and Rosie Meade (with their adorable baby) for some skiing before the wedding of the Princes' polo friend Mark Tomlinson and Olympian Laura Bechtolsheimer tomorrow. The boys have played polo together for years, and Prince Charles is close with his parents, Simon and Claire, who own the Beaufort Club near Prince Charles's Highgrove estate.

More from the Schweizer Illustrierte story which contains a selection of photos:

'The two princes ventured for some skiing on the slopes while pregnant Kate used a Davos sledge. On Saturday they will enjoy the beautiful weather and eat lunch with 250 guests at the wedding of British-Swiss dressage rider Laura Bechtolscheimer and Mark Tomlinson.'

A look at Arosa, Switzerland: Ski tourism in the area grew in popularity from the late 19th Century when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, wrote about his skiing adventures between the towns of Davos and Arosa for The Strand Magazine and inspired other British people to follow in his tracks.


Kate kept warm in her  L.K. Bennett Darwin Jacket. I mentioned earlier this week that the £795 dark chocolate shearling jacket is very much a staple piece for the Duchess and a favourite for her during her pregnancy thus far.

Kate also wore black leggings, black snowboots and Givenchy sunglasses. I'm very excited to see what she chooses to wear, and I do love a wedding, particularly one where William and Kate are in attendance :) One can view more photos of the royals in Arosa at Blick.


The Duchess was spotted shopping in high street store Topshop earlier this week by tweeter @Suzmalooze who kindly shared Kate was wearing her Darwin jacket with black leggings and her hair worn in a ponytail. Kate was browsing downstairs and accompanied by protection officers. It was reported Kate was shopping for pieces from their maternity wear range.

See you all tomorrow for the wedding post :)
