The boyfriend of the Australian model pictured partying with Prince William in Switzerland isn't jealous of their celebrations as he gave his blessing in advance.

Sophie Taylor (24) hit headlines around the world on Monday after pictures of her chatting with the Duke of Cambridge and friends, including Guy Pelly, on a boys trip to Switzerland at the weekend.

According to Ms Taylor's mother Joni, she said her daughter would never put her relationship with club manager Aaron Goodfellow "in an awkward position" and he encouraged her to party with the prince.

"She's very close with her boyfriend," she told Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

She says Aaron told her: "Go out, you're with Prince William, have the best time. I wish I could be there, but I've gotta go to work."

"She's the most beautiful, down-to-earth, humble girl. And it's a shame because she's been targeted."

The father-of-two was pictured in the exclusive ski region, favoured by the royal family, enjoying drinks with friends until the early hours of the morning at the après-ski Farinet nightclub.

Earlier in the day, he was pictured with his group making some new friends including Taylor, who joined the crew later that evening at the exclusive Mouton Noir restaurant and wrapping up the night at Farinet, where her boyfriend also works.

The Duke of Cambridge was notably absent from Britain's Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on Monday and reportedly jetted home from his weekend away on Sunday, which Kensington Palace cited as part of his "private schedule" and would not comment.

William and his wife Kate Middleton are due to visit to Paris this weekend and will arrive in the City of Light this Friday and the trip is particularly poignant for William as it takes place five months before the 20-year anniversary of his mother's death.

It is the first time he's visited the city since the late Princess Diana died there on August 31, 1997.
