Princess Eugenie visited a pop-up forest as part of an exhibit at Somerset House, London, to mark her new role as ambassador for the Blue Marine Foundation.

The princess attended the Forest for Change project, which features a temporary forest of 400 trees in the centre of Somerset House courtyard, as part of a climate change campaign.

In a post on Instagram, Princess Eugenie explained that, “in the middle of this magnificent forest are the [United Nation’s] 17 Global Goals as pillars. Today we were celebrating goal 14: Life Below Water on World Oceans Day.”

She then thanked the Global Goals organisation for “bringing us together to talk about the ocean” and revealed she also spoke about her “new role as a [Blue Marine Foundation] ambassador.”

Eugenie shared a selection of photographs of herself exploring the exhibition and said she “listened to some incredible people all doing remarkable things to help protect our oceans and be a force of change for them and the creatures in it.”

Many of Princess Eugenie’s 1.5 million followers commended the royal’s environmental work and thanked her for drawing attention to the cause.

“That looks beautiful and what an excellent cause. Thank you for sharing the photos with us,” said one commenter, while another added, “Great work Princess Eugenie.”

The Blue Marine Foundation is the second organisation Princess Eugenie has highlighted this week, as she also spoke with young cancer survivor Darcy to check in with her one year on, after meeting through the Teenage Cancer Trust last June.

The Global Goals Pavilion's Forest for Change is at Somerset House until 27 June. Find out more information on the Somerset House website.
