Princess Eugenie has announced a new mini-series on ocean conservation ahead of the upcoming UN ocean conference.

The Princess made the announcement via her official Instagram page yesterday (9 June) to mark World Oceans Day.

Speaking directly to camera in a video, she said she wanted to share some words and hear from experts about why we should “protect the ocean and how vital it is that we do so.”

In the Ocean Advocate Series, Princess Eugenie promised that we would, “hear from some incredible people who’ve sought to protect the ocean and what lives in it for many, many years.”

In a second post, she revealed her first guest will be musician and activist Rocky Dawuni, who the Princess said she met at COP26 where the pair “quickly realised our paths are intertwined and that our mission is to help our environment and oceans.”

In the video, her first guest can be heard describing the ocean as the “life blood of humanity.”

Princess Eugenie is an ambassador of the Blue Marine Foundation which works to protect the ocean through its work.

She asked people to, “Please tune in over the next couple of weeks to hear from these remarkable people who are protecting the ocean and the wildlife in it, from oysters to sharks. We can support and care for the ocean like one of our own.”

The environment has very much been on the royal agenda of late, in particular from Prince William who launched the new Earthshot Prize and spoke about climate change during the Queen’s Platinum Party at the Palace concert over the Jubilee weekend.
