For years, Spain's royals got the winter sport season started with a ski trip complete with photo call. In the last few years, there's been no snowy snap fest and no on expected one. So there was surprise all round at the weekend when King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their two daughters turned up in snow suits, helmets and skis ready for some action shots on the slopes. Yes, Spain's annual royal ski trip seems to be back on.
The night before, the family had been spotted in a hotel in Jaca where they posed for photos after enjoying a meal together. The following day, they headed to the ski slopes of Astun where they posed for photographers before heading off to enjoy the snow.
It's the first time that Princess Leonor and the Infanta Sofia have been seen ski-ing although they clearly have experience as both girls showed confidence navigating the slopes.
