Princess Eugenie spoke candidly about her hopes for her newborn son, August, during a recent interview. 


Princess Eugenie spoke candidly in an interview with CNBC's Tania Byer about her hopes for her newborn son August's future and her initiative, The Anti-Slave Collective.

She shared that the collective started after she and a friend, Julia, had gone to India with her mom, Sarah Ferguson, and met a group of people from the Women's Interlink Foundation.

During their India trip in 2011, they learned about modern slavery. Upon returning to England, they decided to act as "spies" and find out as much as possible about the serious social issue. 

During the conversation with Byer about her charity work, Eugenie opened up and shared what her hopes are for her son in the future. She explained:

"I think my child hopefully will be one of those people who will continue to see the world as a place that can be changed."


She added that she hopes the world will be a place where August can have hope and continue to know that he can make a big difference in the world. 

Eugenie spoke very passionately about her cause, adding that modern slavery is a hidden crime as people are not necessarily aware of where and when it is happening. 

Many fans also praised the royal for posting a photo that showed what a real post-pregnancy body looks like. 


She explained that the term "modern slavery" can be a little confusing but can be cut down to more explanatory terms such as domestic servitude and sex trafficking. 

Eugenie definitely has a lot on her plate as she and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, welcomed their son on February 9, 2021. Eugenie shared an adorable family photo to her Instagram, and the caption read:

"We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.. ???⁣ Thank you for so many wonderful messages. "


Philip honors Eugenie's grandfather, Prince Philip, who is currently in the hospital for observation. His doctor advised him to go to the hospital as a precaution. 

Fans commented congratulatory messages under her post. Many fans also praised the royal for posting a photo that showed what a real post-pregnancy body looks like. 


Eugenie is not a working member of the royal family and worked at an art gallery in London. She and Brooksbank have forgone a royal title for him as they do not want to create a burden for him.

She represents a few charities, despite not being a working member of the family. One of the charities is the Scoliosis Association. Eugenie received surgery for the condition as a child.
