Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank yesterday announced they were expecting their firstborn in early 2021, delighting royal fans. It will be Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s first grandchild and the Queen and Prince Philip’s ninth great-grandchild. The royal baby will be 11th-in-line to the throne after Eugenie but will not have a royal rank as titles are inherited from the father.

Because of this, it is likely to be raised away from the spotlight.

Eugenie has also previously revealed how she intends to raise her child.

She partnered up with Project Zero back in 2018 in an attempt to ban single use- plastic, and it has clearly had a huge impact on the royal.

She told Vogue: “It’s been eye-opening.

“My whole house is anti-plastic now — and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that too.”

Their child is likely to therefore grow up without single-use plastic.

Eugenie showed her dedication to the cause once she returned from her honeymoon in 2018 and decided to push her focus onto a new anti-plastic initiative.

She joined supermodels Kate Moss and Cara Delevinge and actress Sienna Miller, to design a whole host of reusable products for the Sky Oceans Rescue and Project Zero’s #PassOnPlastic.

She told Hello!: “Sadly we have a tendency to take the ocean for granted, assuming that it is an endless vessel for us to take from and give nothing in return.

“It is, however, time to give back. Everyone can easily do this with just a few small changes to everyday routines.”

Last summer, she took to Instagram and promised to stop using single-use plastic and “to do my part to clean up our beautiful world and oceans”.

However, Eugenie is not the first royal to champion the environment.

Her mother Sarah Ferguson tweeted recently about her thoughts on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

Writing back in March, she said: “Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms… like the spoilt children we are.

“She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us.

“She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control.”

Eugenie’s uncle Prince Charles has also spoken out in favour of action against climate change for decades, and is known as the primary champion of the environment within the Royal Family.

For instance, in 2018, he warned the public about the impact environmental damage could have on future generations.

The grandfather-of-four said: “I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon.

“It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them.

“All grandchildren deserve a better future.”

Most recently, the Prince of Wales warned the public the environmental crisis will “dwarf” the pandemic.

Last week, he said: “Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to ‘reset’ for… a more sustainable and inclusive future.

“In other words, the global pandemic is a wake-up call we cannot ignore.

“[The environmental] crisis has been with us for far too many years – decried, denigrated and denied.

“It is now rapidly becoming a comprehensive catastrophe that will dwarf the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”

At the World Economic Forum, he launched a ‘Great Reset’ project, imploring leaders around the world to make sure the economies are rebuilt with nature at their centre.

Prince William has echoed his father’s concerns for the climate crisis, and will soon join 50 ‘leading thinkers and doers’ at a TEDx Countdown discussion to address the climate crisis.

He also launched the Earthshot Prize, a multimillion-pound award to find solutions to the “world’s greatest problems by 2030”.

Prince Harry has inherited a passion for climate as well — he launched the sustainable travel initiative, Travaylst, which aims to reduce the negative impact of travel on the planet.
