While her cousins have been celebrating the festive season in Sandringham, Lady Amelia Windsor has opted instead for some fun on the slopes.

The Duke and Duchess of Kent’s jet-setting daughter has been sharing envy-inducing snaps from her skiing holiday in Méribel with her sister, Lady Marina, this week.

The society sisters are believed to have flown out to the upmarket ski resort, where Pippa Middleton celebrated her secret hen party, earlier this week following the Queen’s annual lunch at Buckingham Palace.

Amelia, 22, and Marina, 25, looked to be enjoying every moment of their winter jaunt and even sported matching necklaces in a selfie posted on Instagram.

The personalised diamond-set necklaces from Annoushka spell out their nicknames, Mel and Win, and are believed to have cost £1,520 each.

The Chelsea-based jewellery brand is a firm favourite with the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Rihanna and Gigi Hadid.

In another snap, Amelia, who is signed with Kate Moss’s former modelling agency Storm, can be seen frolicking in the snow in a £1,085 Moncler jacket.

The society beauty, who is 36th in line to the throne, was once dubbed ‘Britain’s most beautiful royal’ by society magazine Tatler and has walked the runway for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana. 

The University of Edinburgh graduate also recently appeared in new British Vogue editor Edward Enninful first ever issue.

Industry experts have predicted that Amelia – who has all the kudos of royalty without any of the restraints placed on more high profile members of the family – could make £1 million a year through brand collaborations alone.

Amelia’s first foray into the world of modelling came in 2010, when she and her siblings posed for Hardy Amies.

But she has previously hinted that her interest in fashion extends beyond appearing in front of the camera, telling Vogue she wants to understand ‘every aspect’ of a fashion house – down to how the fabrics are manufactured.

The rising star has also completed an internship at Chanel and said of her time with the fashion house: ‘It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. To see how much goes into making a fashion business is quite exciting.’

Amelia and Marina also posed in a glamorous photo shoot for Tatler along with their older brother Edward, Baron Downpatrick, in 2010. 

Distant cousins of William and Harry, the trio are the children of the Earl of St Andrews, and great-great-grandchildren of King George V.
