Various members of the Royal Family are known to enjoy a skiing holiday in prestigious Klosters, Switzerland, and they have struck a deal with the press that means they're left alone throughout the majority of the trip in exchange for . On one such occasion — in 1980 — then-Prince Charles thought he would have a little fun with it all, turning up to the photo shoot wearing a red hat and large ski goggles on his head, plus a fake nose, joke glasses, and a fluffy moustache.
