The Royals showed off their skiing technique before standing for pictures before a mass of paparazzi.

More than 50 cameramen had turned up in the Alpine ski resort and Prince Charles remarked: "There's too many of you."

But the meeting remained good humoured as the Prince wished everyone a happy New Year and joked: "We're the barbershop quartet."

The photocall demonstrated the more open relationship between the Royals and the media, which has developed since the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

But the pay-off for Friday's pictures was made clear to the photographers, who included French paparrazi: stay away for the rest of the holiday.

Despite reports that Prince William, 15, does not like skiing he appeared eager to seize the chance to compete with his 13-year-old brother as they came down the slope to meet the media.
