The Earl and Countess of Wessex recently flew to Switzerland on a £46 million private jet.
Britain's Prince Edward and his wife Sophie travelled to the upmarket ski resort of St Moritz in style, to enjoy a luxurious holiday with friends.
As the getaway was not a royal engagement, Sophie and Edward, both 51, paid for the travel arrangements themselves, with the jet believed to have cost up to £20,000 for the one hour and 45-minute flight, according to the Daily Mail.
During their getaway, Sophie and Edward attended a lavish costume party at Dracula Club hosted by Elle Macpherson
Meanwhile, next month the royal couple will travel to the US and the Bahamas on an official state visit.

Prince Edward - who is the youngest child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip - and Sophie have two children, Lady Louise, 12, and James, Viscount Severn, eight, together.
