Princess Eugenie has revealed how she and husband Jack Brooksbank are spending lockdown.

Princess Eugenie has shared a series of lovely behind-the-scene snaps to reveal what she and husband Jack Brooksbank have been up to during the coronavirus lockdown.

The royal shared a stream of photos of her and husband Jack volunteering with the Salvation Army, where they can be seen organising packages of dry food dressed in high-vis jackets complete with protective gloves.

Since 1865 the Salvation Army has been there with open doors to help so many people,’ wrote the Princess.

In the past few years I have witnessed first hand their dedication and hard work, so when they invited Jack and I to their newly created hub to pack boxes, we jumped at the chance.

‘As a group of volunteers we helped pack trolleys of food that are then taken and distributed to the Army's hugely important and much needed food banks that feed thousands across the UK.

‘Their message is key - their doors are open, always have been and always will be. @salvationarmyuk’.

It came just hours after the Princess shared a lovely tribute to the world’s nurses in honour of International Nurses Day.

On International Nurses Day I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to every single nurse on the front line,’ she wrote alongside a powerful collage of nurses working on the front line.

Opening up about her history with spinal condition scoliosis, Eugenie continued, ‘I was only 12 when I was operated on at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in 2002.

The nurses were a constant source of comfort and support to my family and I. They were able to help me through one of the toughest moments of my life and all with a wonderful smile on their faces.

‘Thank you to them and thank you to all those out on the front line as we speak’.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
