Prince Charles, Klosters, Pattie Palmer-Tomkinson, Princess Diana, Maj. Hugh Lindsay
Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson)at Klosters on skiing holidayThe Prince and his guests on a days outing in the mountains near Klosters, Switzerland, schussed down an off-piste ski slope. The royal party released an avalanche that buried two of its members and almost swept way the Prince himself. Maj. Hugh Lindsay, one of Charles closest friends, died beneath tons of snow. Another friend, Pattie Palmer-Tomkinson, required four months in a Swiss hospital to repair her mangled legs. After the accident many journalists accused the Prince of deadly nonchalence. An enquiry found the Prince should not be singled out for blame as he was the host of the party not the leader.
