Prince William and Kate Middleton were reunited and seen enjoying their holiday at the French Alps since the Prince's return from his six-week duty in Falklands where he worked as a RAF search and rescue pilot.

The royal couple was spotted spending their Easter vacation skiing with Kate's family including her mother Calore, father Michael, Pippa and her brother James at the renowned Trois Vallees ski resort in the French Alps.

The family was also joined by Pippa's rumoured boyfriend, Earl George Percy. Pippa and Percy were dating while they were attending the Edinburgh University. They have known each other for 10 years.

There have been rumours that the duo is seeing each other after Pippa split from long-term boyfriend former English cricketer, Alex Loudon.

Earl Percy is heir to the Duchy of Northumberland. He will inherit, Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, which has been home to Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.

Prince William is said to be enjoying his time with the Middletons because he feels he can be himself around them. He was also seen sharing a bit of male bonding with Percy on the ski lift, reported the Daily Mail.

A source told the Daily Mail: "He genuinely enjoys the company of his parents-in-law. They are a very down-to-earth couple and he can be himself with them."

"It is the family atmosphere he never really had when he was growing up," the source added.

According to reports, the holiday trip was a gift from Carole and Michael Middleton for the newlyweds. They are also believed to have paid for the holiday as Kate and William's budget for trips is small. The royal couple flew from Manchester to Geneva on a low budget airline EasyJet.

During their separation, the Duchess of Cambridge was involved in various royal duties. She also accompanied the queen to some events as part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations. Besides, Kate gave her first public speech at the Treehouse, a children's hospice in Ipswich in southeast England

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary later this month.
