Meghan Markle just hit the slopes with her two children—Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 2—and she almost went unnoticed.

This week, the Duchess of Sussex, 42, traveled to Utah to visit Powder Mountain Ski Resort with her two friends, Heather Dorak and Kelly McKee Zajfen. The trio took a photo together, and much to our delight, it was shared on Instagram by Dorak.

The caption read, “Wow, what a perfect trip!! My heart is so full. The kids crushed the slopes by day and the adults howled with laughter deep into the night. Truly lucky in love with our wonderful friends!”

Markle was wearing an all-black outfit, including a puffer jacket, ski pants and a cozy beanie. She accessorized with her go-to sunglasses by Blenders ($59). The royal was sporting the “Grove” style in the color midnight drama, which are polarized and offer 100 percent UV protection. (FYI, she previously wore the same sunglasses when she and her husband, Prince Harry, visited Canada.)

According to Hello!, Markle’s children were in attendance even though they weren’t featured in any of the photos (we imagine they still enjoyed their time in the snow). To our knowledge, the duchess was not accompanied by Prince Harry on the trip. He either kept a low profile (which seems doubtful), or he stayed at home in Montecito (perhaps to keep an eye on the couple’s growing chicken flock). 

Sounds like a trip for the books.
