Excuse us for a moment as we go all gossip rag, but we’ve recently come across some photos of Prince William and his gal pal, Kate Middleton, frolicking about on a snowmobile.

Like most of do once or twice a year, the pair was vacationing in the French Alps and decided to go for a spin on a Polaris sled. We can’t quite make out the exact model, but the bodywork suggests it’s powered by 550cc fan-cooled Twin.

So what does this mean for snowmobiling? As our British friends like to say, not bloody much. Still, anytime royalty takes to the trails on a snowmobile it’s always news. Right?
