The 26-year-old royal and her partner have been spotted chatting to holidaymakers at the plush resort, where the Duchess of York lives in a £13m seven-bed chalet.

Eugenie took a break from her job as an associate director at a modern art gallery to visit her mother, but still found the time to warmly greet onlookers in Switzerland, according to the Daily Mail.

Verbier is an especially significant location for Eugenie and Jack, because it is where they first met in 2010 during a skiing holiday.

Princess Eugenie's trip comes shortly after she and her sister, 28-year-old Princess Beatrice, were praised by their mother for being "incredible" and "humble".

The Duchess of York admitted she is very proud of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie - whose father is her ex-husband Prince Andrew - and said she is especially delighted that they recently joined her in becoming patrons of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

She said: "The Duke and I couldn't be more proud of this moment.

"Their actions show their commitment and dedication to their grandmother and their country.

"It's so great to see them shining and I'm very, very proud.

"I think they're the most humble people I know in my life and the Duke and I are lucky as parents to have these incredible, humble children."

Beatrice, for her part, revealed she was pleased to follow in the Duchess' footsteps and "do this as a family".

She shared: "It's about supporting young people and making sure we recognise that teenagers have to go through so much - and then you add cancer on top of that."
