IDOMENI, GREECE – MARCH 6: Refugees wash a new born baby as they stay in tents that they set up in the Idomeni town in Greece, near the Macedonian border on March 6, 2016. (Photo by Iker Pastor/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)

The refugee camp in Idomeni, on the border of Greece and Macedonia, is filled with families living in squalor as they wait for Macedonia to reopen its borders.

Thousands of people left everything behind and escaped the dangers of war on their front steps, hoping to build better lives for themselves and their children in Macedonia, which has subsequently tightened its border restrictions.

This three-or-four-day-old newborn baby who was likely born in the tent has nothing, not even warm water to bathe in.

With weather conditions making the camp increasingly colder and muddier, Greek authorities are trying to persuade people to leave and move further into Europe.

Prince William and his wife Kate took their children skiing in the French Alps.

Since their two infants have the best, warmest outer wear money can buy and a nice warm fire to cozy up to in the ski lodge, they had fun getting a little cold and wet, unlike the newborn baby living in a tent who has to be cleaned by cold water from a bottle over the muddy ground in Idomeni.

If you want to see more pictures of these rich assoles playing in the snow, you’ll have to find them yourself, because this is not news and I’m not going to link you to it.
