The new mum delighted members of the organisation Survivor Alliance, as she joined them via video call to celebrate their third anniversary on Friday. She spent an hour interviewing the charity’s executive director, Minh Dang, about the group’s work. During her chat with the collective’s members, the Princess remarked: “I’m so incredibly proud for everything that’s going on now.
“I have to say I’m thrilled to be asking questions and not be answering them right now.”
Survivor Alliance work with survivors of slavery and human trafficking, with the goal of uniting and empowering them to become “leaders of the anti-slavery movement”.
It is a subject that is of particular interest to Eugenie, who along with her friend Julia De Boinville set up the Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017.
Its aim is to abolish modern slavery and provide support to vulnerable women.
The Princess announced the launch of her campaign at the Changemakers Summit in London three years ago.
At the time, she said: “We will be starting an Anti-Slavery Collective which is all about raising awareness of global slavery.
“Creating a platform where everyone works together, shares data and incredible stories.”
Eugenie became interested in human trafficking after visiting the Women’s Interlink charity during a trip to India in 2013 with her mother, Sarah Ferguson.
On returning to the UK, she became involved with several organisations, including the Salvation Army, which deals with issues including modern day slavery.

During an interview with the Salvation Army in 2016, she said: “Everyone who works within modern slavery and who tries to fight for the people who don’t have a voice are courageous.”
Eugenie also helped her parents, the Duke and Duchess York, set up Key to Freedom.
It is a social enterprise initiative that supports and facilitates a route to market for products made by the survivors of trafficking at the Women’s Interlink Foundation.
