Prince Charles has had his name reinstated on the side of a cable car at his favourite Swiss ski resort after it was controversially replaced by the logo of a sponsor earlier this year.

Britain's Prince Charles has had his name reinstated on the side of a cable car.

The 66-year-old royal's name was removed from the ski lift at the resort of Klosters in Switzerland and replaced with the name of its sponsor M&G.

However, after much campaigning from locals and British tourists - who were proud of the royal connection - the Prince of Wales' name has now been reinstated on the side of the vehicle, HELLO! magazine reports.

The heir to the throne's moniker is now etched on to two of the resort's bright red cable cars in a bid to make up for the upset.

A source shared: "His name has been elevated to the upper cable car, which is altogether rather fitting. I am not sure if His Royal Highness is aware yet but I know he will be delighted."

Prince Charles has been skiing at the resort for a number of years but was last seen there in March 2013 and is thought to have given up the sport because his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, is less skilled on the slopes and reportedly suffers from vertigo.
