Earlier this month the royal opened up about her decision to have no plastic in her house.

Princess Eugenie said the decision was motivated by the birth of her son during a speech as part of the Reuters Impact Arctic Warning series at WEF.

She said: “My son's going be like an activist from two years old, which is in a couple of days.

“Everything is for them, right? I talked to Peter Thompson, the UN Special Envoy for oceans, and all he says to me is that ‘I do this with 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.

“But I think also as a mother you all of a sudden, totally you change, your hormones change, everything changes. But like now I'm scared of flying and things like that. I would never be before. It's the same with how you view the world.

“I think now all I think about is what happens to rising sea levels and the communities that are on the beaches, who depend solely on the sea, as well as what August can do about it in the future. You know what his education will be.

“At home we have no plastic and we're trying to, as much as possible, have no plastic. I'm trying to teach him that, but you know, it is a battle.”
