Princess Eugenie makes first work trip since pregnancy announcement

Princess Eugenie has been out on her first engagement since announcing her pregnancy.

HRH Princess Eugenie and her Anti-Slavery Collective co-founder Julia de Boinville were "incredibly moved" by conversations they had with slavery survivors.

Last month the 30-year-old posted a snap of her holding baby slippers on Instagram to announce that she was expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank, 34.

Eugenie shared the snap with the caption: "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021…."

Now pictures of Eugenie's baby bump have been shared online by her charity the Anti-Slavery Collective, as the Queen's granddaughter visited a Salvation Army safe house.

Eugenie and Ms de Boinville posed in matching face masks as they held handmade flower pots given to them by the slave labour survivors they met on the day.

The pair's charity Anti-Slavery Collective posted three photos of their day with the caption: "In honour of #AntiSlaveryDay, earlier this week our co-founders HRH Princess Eugenie and Julia de Boinville visited a @salvationarmyuk safe house for a socially distanced visit with modern slavery survivors and staff members.

"They were incredibly moved by the courageous stories of the survivors who had endured sometimes decades of abuse at the hands of traffickers and slave labourers.

"These incredible individuals have the courage to remain inspired by the prospect of a brighter future, despite their difficult journey in the face of extreme adversity.

"In addition to vital safe houses such as the one we visited, Salvation Army also help adult victims get access to education opportunities, legal advice, counselling, and support in obtaining employment and housing."

Eugenie and Julia set up The Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017 – an 'independent collective whose mission is to bring change-makers together to raise awareness for modern slavery as a global epidemic'.

Eugenie's child will be born eleventh in line to the throne but will not have a royal title because it will have come from a female line of the Royal Family.

He or she will be just be a 'normal' Master or Miss Brooksbank.

The Queen has the power to change that by giving Eugenie's husband an earldom or issue Letters Patent to amend the rules.
