Princess Eugenie only had words of praise for members of the royal family for their activity in raising awareness about climate change at the COP26 summit in Glasgow. The royal shared multiple photographs and videos on Instagram Stories to show her support, which included her grandmother the Queen’s touching message.
Attached to a clip of the monarch delivering her virtual address at the event in Glasgow, the royal wrote: “Brilliant beginning to the 20121 United Nations Climate Change Conference.”
In the video shared, the Queen says: “I, for one, hope that this conference will be one of those rare occasions where everyone will have the chance to rise above the politics of the moment, and achieve true statesmanship.”
Eugenie also reshared a video from Clarence House’s Instagram account, which showed her uncle Prince Charles delivering a passionate speech at the opening ceremony of the COP26 summit.
The Prince of Wales warned: “Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, many of your countries I know are already feeling the devastating impact of climate change, through ever-increasing droughts, mudslides, floods, hurricanes, cyclones and wildfires, as we’ve just seen on that terrifying film.
“Any leader who has had to confront such life-threatening challenges knows that the cost of inaction is far greater than the cost of prevention. So, I can only urge you, as the world’s decision-makers, to find practical ways of overcoming differences so we can all get down to work, together, to rescue this precious planet and save the threatened future of our young people.”
Among the final posts, Princess Eugenie reshared a photograph of all the royals there at the summit, which include Prince Charles, Camilla, as well as Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. The photograph was from the COP26 evening reception.
She simply added clapping hand emojis, as well as highlighting the Queen’s emotive message: “It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role my husband played in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet, lives on through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William. I could not be more proud of them.”
The mother-of-one, Eugenie does not carry out any official royal duties on her own, but she does work with many charities and talks about important causes on her social media accounts. Much like her uncle Charles and cousin William, she co-authored a piece for Spears’ November issue in which she described the ocean as “the best natural solution we have to climate change on the planet.”
Over the weekend, Eugenie shared an adorable photograph of her eight-month-old son August all dressed up in a blue monster costume for Halloween.
