Princess Eugenie travelled to Glasgow this week to make a surprise appearance at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26.

Recording footage from the conference, the mum-of-one uploaded a video detailing what events she had attended and the people she met, and captioned it: “A wonderful first day at COP26 meeting and speaking to some of the most inspiring initiatives and people out there.”

Her 1.5 million followers were clearly delighted that the royal was getting involved in the conference and were quick to comment on the post. One follower wrote: “Love that you attended and the whole family is getting involved!!! 😍❤️”, while a second put: “Wonderful that you are lending your support to this great initiative and supporting your family - well done!”, and a third commented: “Good job. Getting involved is of the utmost importance”.

One of the speakers Princess Eugenie recorded was fashion designer Gabriela Hearst talking about how to bring about real change in her industry.

The royal had aptly decided to wear a design by Hearst to the conference and looked stylish wearing the brand's Seymore knit dress, which costs £990. A favourite designer of the royals, both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex have also worn garments by the designer, who is the current creative director at Chloé, too.

Princess Eugenie finished her look with the wool and silk Ado side-buckle biker jacket by Nanushka (£825), her go-to Rag & Bone boots and the Louis Vuitton Cappuccine bag. Naturally adding an eco element to her outfit, she also wore a London Velvet Bottle Bag, which makes carrying around a reusable water bottle all the easier.
