Princess Eugenie says she’s teaching her one-year-old son about climate change

Princess Eugenie says she’s teaching her one-year-old son about climate change

Princess Eugenie has revealed that she’s already teaching her son about climate change.

The British royal family member spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos to share that she’s teaching her one-year-old about sustainability.

"My son's going to be an activist from two years old, which is in a couple of days. So, he, everything is for them," she explained during a chat with Reuters IMPACT and Arctic Humanity at Risk Basecamp.

Princess Eugenie said becoming a mother has helped her think about the world that she's leaving to the younger generations and wants to be a role model at home.

She added: "I talked to Peter Thomson, the UN Special Envoy for Oceans, and all he says to me is that I do this for my grandchildren. And that's the same.

"Every decision we now make has to be for whether August, what he's going to be able to look at and do and how he's going to live his life."

And just like her uncle, King Charles III, she aims to keep her entire household plastic free.

She said: "At home, we have no plastic, we try to as much as possible have no plastic and I'm trying to teach him that.

"But it's a battle.”

However, the mother admitted that while it's easy to portray things as ‘doom and gloom’ she likes to have a positive mindset regarding the climate crisis.

She said: “I'd rather be that way, but sometimes the facts and the figures and sometimes having the dinners do give you that sort of sense of frustration and doom and gloom.”

But the Princess has been passionate about saving the earth for quite some time.

In 2021, she was appointed an ambassador for the Blue Marine Foundation, an organisation dedicated to restoring the ocean to health.

In November 2021, she shared top tips for being kinder to the ocean in a Hello! magazine article.

She wrote: “It's estimated 100 million marine animals die from plastic waste each year.

"We can all make a difference if we try to reduce our use of single-use plastics - an easy change to make is using a refillable water bottle as opposed to plastic.”

She adds that it’s imperative to respect oceanic habitats.

“If you are exploring a marine environment, remember to be considerate, and treat any plants or creatures you come across with care,” she wrote.
