A Plastic-Free Princess

Princess Eugenie is set to take an environmental stance in the fight against plastic by having a plastic-free Wedding. The Queen’s granddaughter is set to marry Jack Brooksbank this Friday at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle and in a rare interview last month in British Vogue, said, “My whole house is anti-plastic now – and Jack and I want our Wedding to be like that as well.”


Princess Eugenie has recently shown her support for the fight against plastic by becoming an ambassador for Project Zero, a marine charity which aims to restore and protect the ocean. Showing her commitment to the anti-plastic movement by publicly announcing a plastic-free Wedding serves to highlight the issues of single-use plastic further, “At the moment I’m picking up the mantle of anti-plastics, so I work with Project Zero which has just partnered with Sky Ocean Rescue. Together, they’re trying to end single-use plastic… we aim to inspire people to make sustainable choices to stop the ocean from drowning in plastic.”


The second Royal Wedding of 2018 will take place in the same 15-century chapel as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married in May. No one yet knows who has been commissioned to design the Royal Wedding Dress of the ninth in line to the throne but Princess Eugenie has revealed that it is a British-based Designer.

In her interview, published in British Vogue’s September issue, Princess Eugenie told fashion features editor Ellie Pithers, “I’m not stressed at all. It’s nerve-wracking because you want it to be perfect but then you realise that you’re going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters… It’s about how we feel, but also how our family and friends feel. I want it to be beautiful and fun and to bring out our personalities as much as possible.”
