PRINCESS EUGENIE has appeared on camera for the first time since her royal baby news was announced. The Princess opened up about her lockdown experience during an Instagram Live interview.
On Monday evening Eugenie joined TogetherBands charity ambassador Cameron Saul for an interview on Instagram live.
TogetherBands are handmade in Nepal by a collective of women who have been rescued from human trafficking.
The Anti-Slavery Collective Instagram post promoting the chat read: “Join us here this coming Monday at 7pm GMT for an Insta live with our Co-founder HRH Princess Eugenie.
“She will be talking to @togetherbandofficial about tackling modern slavery during a pandemic.
The post added: “Join us here this coming Monday at 7pm GMT for an Insta live with our Co-founder HRH Princess Eugenie.

During her interview with Cameron, Eugenie opened up about how she was finding the second lockdown.
The mother-to-be said: “Lockdown’s been OK for me.
“I can’t believe we’re on lockdown 2.0, as everyone’s calling it.”
She added: “I’m very lucky to have had my health throughout number one and number two and I just can’t really begin to imagine what people are going through, who are getting ill.”
Eugenie’s father-in-law, Jack Brooksbank’s father George was treated in intensive care for coronavirus in March.
Speaking about the worrying experience, Eugenie said: “My father-in-law was quite ill in lockdown one so I am so grateful that he is alive, that there are so many incredible people out there fighting for everyone’s lives.”
Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy was confirmed by the Palace in September in a statement.
Buckingham Palace said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.
“The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.”
Princess Eugenie and Jack’s baby will be the Queen and Prince Philip’s ninth great-grandchild and will be 11th in line to the throne.
The royal baby is unlikely to receive a title because of its low position in the line of succession.

Where will Eugenie and Jack spend Christmas?
Eugenie and Jack may choose to spend their last Christmas before becoming parents at the Royal Lodge with Eugenie’s parents.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson hosted Eugenie and Jack throughout the first lockdown and they are known to be close.
Eugenie and Jack could also be joined by her beloved sister Princess Beatrice, 30, and brother-in-law Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Eugenie and Beatrice are extremely fond of one another and may wish to treasure the time they have left before motherhood dramatically changes Eugenie’s life.
