Glowing in green: Princess Eugenie turns heads in floral for surprise engagement

Princess Eugenie is embracing the warmer season in the most glamorous way she knows how.

During a surprise appearance in London for an important cause, the royal opted for a stunning ensemble that turned heads for all the right reasons.

With most of the royal family now on summer holidays, Eugenie delighted fans when she arrived at Westminster Abbey to show support for a cause that’s close to her heart – The Anti-Slavery Collective.

The charity aims to beat modern day slavery, and Eugenie met with John Cotton Richmond, the US Ambassador-at-Large for Combating Trafficking in Persons.

The 29-year-old stunned in a green and gold floral Alice & Olivia dress, which came complete with a matching ribbon tied around her waist.

The wrap style silhouette and bunched sleeves made the Princess look right on trend, with the deep green hue complimenting her brunette locks.

She finished off the look with a pair of nude heels.

Eugenie has previously discussed her work in anti-slavery initiatives, with the most recent interview being from last year when she appeared on podcast Global GoalsCast.

The Princess and her long-time friend, Julie de Boinville, who works with the royal on Antislavery Collective, both revealed the time they visited Calcutta in 2013 and met a woman who started the Women’s Interlink Foundation.

The Foundation aims to get trafficked females off the streets by teaching them skills such as fabric design and creating clothing.

“Jules and I, that was the first time we ever really saw what modern slavery was and human trafficking and what really that is in the modern age,” said Eugenie at the time.

The Princess has been kept busy this summer by making a number of appearances at Royal Ascot, as well as attending the Queen’s garden parties at Buckingham Palace.
