Harry's no Eddie the Eagle
Hanging about: Charles and Harry take it easy
The Prince of Wales may be a famed skier but he has conceded that his youngest son may be getting the advantage on him.
The prince landed without any unfavourable comparisons to Eddie the Eagle Edwards - even though he was wearing short snowblades and not using poles.
Prince Charles, 50, jumped before his son, using normal skis and poles.
"I suspect age - youth - has the advantage," said the heir to the throne.
"I hope you all noticed I've got a new suit on," said Prince Charles, wearing a grey ski suit, a jaunty blue and white handkerchief tied around his neck and a pair of slick mirrored sunglasses.
Harry plumped for a fashionable all-black ski-suit, over a bright red fleece, and wore a black baseball-style hat bought during his skiing holiday last year at Whistler, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
The royal skiing party expect to be allowed to have a private holiday in return for the photo opportunity given on Tuesday.
Skiing with Prince Charles and his son are Tiggy Legge-Bourke, 33, Prince Harry's former nanny, and friend Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, 27, often seen at fashionable parties in the pages of the London Evening Standard newspaper.
Zara Phillips, the Princess Royal's 17-year-old daughter is also expected to be joining the holiday.
