Prince William books Swiss ski holiday
The 26-year-old shunned the five-star hotel he normally stays at with his father and brother in favour of a luxury villa, complete with spa baths and trained chefs, reports the Daily Mail.
A source told the newspaper that Prince Charles has said he will not be going skiing this year so his eldest son has decided to go on holiday with some of his closest friends.
"William has booked a chalet which is out of this world," commented the source, adding: "It's not the place they usually stay, but William has decided he wants to do something different."
In a recent interview with a ten-year-old cancer patient to promote the work of Royal Marsden Hospital, Prince William revealed that during his childhood he dreamt of joining the police.
