Letizia and Felipe (then fiances) skiing. (from seegerpress)

It seems that Letizia will have another break in her skiing lessons. Last year she was just after the labour and c-section and this winter she will already have a big belly

Too bad for The Princess of Asturias's skiing improvements but what a joy for the family!

They're all much better skiers than I am :) I didn't learn until I turned 30, and it's only my second season at it- I love it but I'm not good at it. They're lucky that most learned as children and I love seeing their ski weekend photos

Skiing, Prince Charles and the BRF

The BRF now has a long tradition of enjoying skiing. Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward and their families have all enjoyed skiing.

The Duke of Windsor was also a keen skier having skied in Norway in 1914 and in Austria in 1935.

I was wondering who introduced Prince Charles to Skiing?

Was it his father the Duke of Edinburgh? Was he a keen skier?

Or was it Lord Mountbatten?

Did the Queen ever ski?

Charles learned to ski as a schoolboy, a 14 year old.. His early trips were to Scuol in Switzerland and Vaduz in Liechtenstein. I’ve never heard of the Queen skiing at all, though perhaps Prince Philip did when he was very young. Edward VIII certainly skied, as you stated. There are photos of himself and Wallis Simpson at an Austrian ski resort in the 1930s. Charles was probably taught on the slopes by a ski instructor.

Press photos from 1969 of Charles ‘at skiing and polo lessons’

Thanks for that.

What I was wondering is who wanted Charles to do the lessons? It would have been quite a trip to Switzerland for a 14 year old. Was Prince Philip behind it?

I have also found out that the Kent family were skiers with Prince George skiing with the Duke of Windsor in the 1930s and the current duke skiing in the 1950s. Prince William of Gloucester also skied in the 1960s.

It may have been one of those end of term trips organised by Gordonstoun school itself. British public schools often arrange trips like that for groups of students. Interesting that Pr George of Kent, who was close to his oldest brother, also skied. Prince Charles hero worshipped Pr William of Gloucester and perhaps wanted to emulate him.
