Member of England's royal family Prince Harry was recently photographed skiing with his reported new flame, Cressida Bonas, a model for Burberry, at an exclusive ski lodge in Verbier, Austria.
The couple, who were also accompanied by Sarah Ferguson, Harry's aunt, were photographed walking, ski gear in tow, to the slopes, which are nestled in the country's Canton of Valais, earlier this week.
More photos show the couple involved in a warm embrace at the top of the ski slope.
The couple, who were reportedly introduced by Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie, have been dating since May 2012, but have kept their relationship very private from the media.
Additional reports indicate that the couple became partially estranged after compromising photos of Prince Harry from Las Vegas, Nevada, were leaked to the media in September 2012.
"She's very low-key and not a high-maintenance kind of girl, which is why it didn't surprise any of us when they first got together," one source told E! News of Bonas.
"She's not affected by fame and she certainly isn't intimated by the fact Harry's royal," the source continued.
"She's a high-society girl and has always mixed in those circles, but she's incredible, fun and easy to be around. She's a good choice for him as she knows how to be discreet and she can cope with the pressure of being with him very well," the source added.
According to the New York Post, Harry took Bonas to the slopes for her 24th birthday, as he is currently on leave from the army after serving in Afghanistan.
Bonas, dubbed by British tabloids as a "blue-blooded socialite," is the daughter of Jeffrey Bonas, an entrepreneur, and Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, the daughter of the 6th Earl Howe.
