Sarah Duchess of York has always been vocal in supporting her family in their various endeavours - be it ex-husband Prince Andrew, or her daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.
And last week proved to be no exception, when the Duchess shared just how ‘proud’ she was of her girls after they held an important conference.
On Friday, the two York siblings hosted a United Nations conference in New York, centred around Eugenie’s own initiative, The Anti-Slavery Collective, which aims to shine a spotlight on modern slavery.
Clearly, Fergie couldn’t be more delighted with her daughters bringing attention to the important issue, praising them on her Instagram account.
She wrote, ‘So proud of my girls Beatrice and Eugenie @unitednations HQ. Eugenie hosted a conference about ending slavery in New York @princesseugenie #theun #newyork #nyc #usa’, alongside a picture of the Princesses.
Fergie’s followers agreed with the Duchess, lauding the work Beatrice and Eugenie are doing.
One commented, ‘You must be so proud of them! Pat yourself on the back. ❤’. And another fan wrote, ‘You must be so very proud of your two very caring and lovely daughters 🌸💖’.
Princess Eugenie also took to her social media following the conference in America, to admit that it was an “honour” to speak on behalf of the issue.
Like Fergie, fans were quick to praise the Princesses efforts, and thanked them for shining a light on the issue.
One wrote, ‘Thank you for speaking out about this problem that continues in today’s society.’, while another said, ‘Truly inspiring. Wish there were more like you 👏🙏’.
A third fan agreed, commenting, ‘Good work. Am utterly horrified by the images I keep seeing on social media. This has to stop.’
Bringing attention to the issue of modern slavery has long been a cause Eugenie has thrown her support behind.
Speaking in 2016 about a trip three years prior to Calcutta, where women are trafficked, Eugenie confessed, “that was my first view into it.”
Eugenie continued, “It’s something that always striked me as never really being talked about. And no one really knowing what’s going on.
“It’s something that I’m definitely going to shout about.”
