Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, made her way to Switzerland this weekend to attend (with her husband Prince William and his brother Prince Harry) a friend’s wedding and along the way managed to enjoy some fun downtime for herself. After Kate and the princes celebrated the nuptials of their friend, the group dressed down so that they could have some snowy fun on the slopes. As I understand it, Kate did not get into any activity that was too strenuous but she did appear to have some fun as best she could. Click below to see a couple photos of Kate and her Royal Baby Bump on the slopes of Switzerland this weekend.
The Duchess of Cambridge has proved that her pregnancy is not slowing her down as she enjoys a winter break in the Swiss Alps. But rather than get her skis on, Kate seemed to opt for a bit of sledging instead. Kate was pictured chatting to friends, including one carrying a baby, as she pulled a wooden sledge along the slopes of the luxury Arosa resort. Dressed in black trousers and boots, a brown jacket and wearing shades in the bright winter sunshine, the royal could later be seen mingling as skiers got kitted out for the day. Despite being an ardent fan of the sport, the Duchess appeared to opt for a gentle walk rather than getting her skis on. Skiing is listed by the NHS as one of the sports to avoid when pregnant because of the risk of falling. Kate, who is about four months pregnant, was first seen skiing with William in Switzerland in 2004, and they had they also had their first photographed kiss there two years later. Kate and Prince William are in Switzerland to attend the wedding of their friends polo player Mark Tomlinson to Olympic dressage gold medallist Laura Bechtolsheimer. Prince Harry was also a guest at the society wedding. While all eyes were focussed on the happy couple, the young royals acted as any other guest and chatted happily in the background … The Duchess of Cambridge, who beamed as she watched the newlyweds emerging into the bright Swiss sunshine after the ceremony, was elegant in a cream woollen coat over a floral dress, teamed with a chocolate brown pillbox hat and fur scarf. The chocolate-box Alpine resort is known for being small and compact, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains
Dude, can you imagine having members of the British Royal Family attend your wedding? On the one hand, it must be nice to rub elbows with royalty and call them friends. On the other hand, ain’t nobody giving a crap about YOUR special day when the royals are in the picture. Sigh, it must be rough for some people. But I digress. Kate isn’t really bumpin’ out just yet so she still looks the same to me. I’m glad she was able to have some fun this weekend but, yes, any snow sport activities are probably a bad idea for her right now. Still, it looks like a very relaxing and joyous weekend was had by all.
