Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands are enjoying some family fun time on their annual skiing holiday. The Dutch royals hit the slopes with their three daughters in the picturesque resort of Lech, Austria, where they have been going on holiday for years.

King Willem-Alexander looked at ease as he navigated the slopes followed by Queen Máxima, who showed off her impressive skiing skills in a stylish red ski jacket and matching trousers.

Princess Catharina-Amalia, 12, Princess Alexia, ten, and Princess Ariane, eight – who were all wrapped up in padded ski jackets for their day in the picture-perfect ski resort.

The young royals posed together happily for photos with their parents, before playfully starting a snowball fight. Princess Alexia appeared in high spirits as she created a snowball before throwing it as far as she could – much to the amusement of her sisters.

Willem-Alexander’s mother Princess Beatrix also joined her family on the getaway. The doting grandmother has been keen to spend as much time as possible with her family since stepping down from the throne three years ago
