Prince Charles, 73, is known to enjoy his ski holidays in Klosters, Switzerland, which is also a beloved ski destination for many members of the Firm. However, during one trip 40 years ago it seems the future monarch had enough of being instantly recognisable and took matters into his own hands.
In January 1980, the Queen’s son decided to don a hilarious disguise to mask his royal identity.
In a ruse to hide from the press photographers, Charles paired his ski equipment and winter gear with sporting glasses, a giant nose and a fake mustache.
However, the royal’s plan did not do the trick as the Prince was soon spotted by photographers.
Catching on to the prank, the photographers sported their own fake noses and red hats in return.

Embracing the habit of avoiding attention, William and his wife Kate Middleton, 40, attended a screening of Toy Story 3 sporting “fancy dress and wore wigs”.
The manager of a movie theatre revealed to the Daily Mail: “Prince William’s was purple if I remember rightly.”
Similarly, while Royal Family members have official social media accounts where they post announcements and day-to-day activities, one member of the Firm tried to use private profiles, unknown to the public.
Prince Harry, 37, reportedly had social media accounts under the name “Spike Wells”, which was active from 2008 to 2012.
The now-deleted Facebook account had over 400 friends “including some of the UK’s wealthiest and most glamorous socialites” and listed interest as “all sports”, according to the Mirror.
