Zermatt awakens Prince William's romantic side
However, onlookers might have rubbed their eyes in disbelief - according to the Sun, the usually shy royal embraced his girlfriend, Kate Middleton, in an exceptional display of affection.
It is not difficult to see why a ski holiday in Zermatt persuaded the prince to show the public his romantic side.
Framed by the legendary Klein Matterhorn, the Swiss resort is a breathtaking setting for a lovers' liaison.
Spectacular skiing is combined with gorgeous views as skiers ascend the Klein Matterhorn on the resort's highest-climbing lift.
Middleton - who met the royal at university in St Andrews - certainly looked like a princess alongside her beau on the slopes.
After such a successful trip, it would be unsurprising if the classy couple return for another ski holiday in Zermatt.
