It looks like Prince William wasn't the only one who got away from it all last month on a guys' trip to the Alps. While Will got his party on in Switzerland, his lovely wife Kate Middleton was also hitting the slopes in Meribel in the French Alps for her sister Pippa's bachelorette party.


Pippa's "hen party" reportedly took place during the same time as William's getaway last month, and of course included her beloved sister, the Duchess of Cambridge. She's marrying financier James Matthews in May, so obviously it was the perfect time for a ski trip.

According to People magazine, Pippa, Kate, and friends relaxed in a catered chalet with a maid and chef in Meribel, while William and his buddies were only 100 miles away in Berbier, Switzerland. They even apparently shared a private jet, which dropped them off at their separate locations.

It's not surprising at all that Pippa chose such a sporty getaway for her bachelorette party, instead of going out clubbing or something similar. She's always enjoyed being active, and it's a passion we've seen her share with her fiancé as well. 

It's awesome that she was able to share it with Kate as well, even when William was off enjoying his own time away from it all. Apparently they didn't even have to rely on royal nannies or childcare for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as they reportedly stayed with Kate and Pippa's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.

We're sure they weren't spoiled at all by their doting grandparents. Just kidding. We're pretty sure they had an even better time than either one of their parents.

Pippa and James's wedding is rumored to scheduled for May 20. It's been described by People as a "private, low-key ceremony at St. Mark's church in Englefield," and a reception will follow at the Middletons' Bucklebury home. Low-key or not, we're sure that the event is still going to be pretty posh.
