Princess Eugenie is planning a 'plastic-free' Royal wedding

Her new Ambassadorship has been eye-opening.

IT’S NOT JUST supermarkets who are committing to going plastic-free – the Queen’s grand-daughter is too.

Princess Eugenie has recently become an Ambassador of Project 0, which is an initiative  committed to

 fixing the world’s largest and most solvable problem – the ocean.

The new Ambassadorship has been life-changing for Eugenie. In an exclusive interview, Eugenie told Vogue that:

It’s been eye-opening. My whole house is anti-plastic now – and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well.

Eugenie is following a family trend. Buckingham Palace announced in February that the royal household would ban plastic straws and bottles on the estate.

Princess Eugenie announced her engagement to Jack Brooksbank back in January, just two months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became engaged.

The wedding will be held on October 12th, and like Harry and Meghan, it will take place at St. George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The lovebirds met through mutual friends seven years ago at a Swiss ski resort. Her future husband has quite the glamorous job as the brand ambassador of Casamigos Tequila, a company founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, the husband of model Cindy Crawford and father of up-and-coming teenage model Kaia Gerber. The company sold in 2017 for $1billion.

Speaking of the wedding, Eugenie said:

It’s very 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.

Nothing else except that by 2040 there’ll be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
