Princess Eugenie visits the Câr Y Môr regenerative ocean farm

Princess Eugenie dressed down in an overcoat and sunglasses to visit a regenerative ocean farm.

The royal, 32, wore a dark coat underneath a life jacket for the excursion on a boat at Câr Y Môr in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in her role as ambassador of the Blue Marine Foundation, which aims to restore the ocean by addressing overfishing.

She looked at the seaweed and shellfish farm and then returned inland to see the seaweed processing facilities. 

The visit was carried out to mark United Nations World Oceans Day, which is marked on June 8 as a reminder of the destruction caused by human activities such as waste, sewage disposal and oil leaks. It is not known when the visit took place.

The 32-year-old swept her brunette locks off of her face for the visit, sporting dark sunglasses. 

She kept her makeup minimal and wore a dark brown corduroy jacket and black trousers. 

Eugenie attended the ocean farm without husband Jack Brooksbank, 36, and their son August, one.

Câr-Y-Môr is a community benefit society which aims to improve the coast and people’s well being.

Canada first proposed the idea for a World Ocean Day at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. 

The aim of the day is to celebrate the world’s ocean and our personal connection to the sea, as well as raising awareness of the role it plays in our lives and the health of the environment.

Today there are in-person and online events, lectures and activities and the theme is ‘Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean’.

The events will ‘shed light on the communities, ideas and solutions working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains.’  

Princess Eugenie’s appearance at the ocean farm comes after a busy weekend of Platinum Jubilee celebrations for her grandmother the Queen. 

On Sunday, she attended the Platinum Jubilee pageant in which her son August made his first official appearance. 

Eugenie, 32, could be seen bouncing son August, one, on her knee while attending the event alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank, and her sister Beatrice, 33, who was joined by her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and his son, Christopher, whose nickname is Wolfie, and who he shares with his former partner Dara Huang.

The one-year-old August was wearing a jumper with a Union flag on the front, while Wolfie donned a smart navy jacket while sitting between his father and step-mother. This marks the family’s first appearance at the public event – although Beatrice’s daughter Sienna, who is just eight-months-old didn’t attend Sunday’s outing.

The sister’s – dressed in elegant dresses – were joined by Charles, Camilla, Zara and Mike Tindall, and the Cambridges in the royal box, set at the end of the 2½-hour procession outside Buckingham Palace, to mark the end of the celebrations in honour of the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. 

The pageant was split into four acts: For Queen and Country with a military parade; The Time of Our Lives progressing through seven decades of culture, music and fashion; Let’s Celebrate telling the story of the Queen’s life in 12 chapters with corgi puppets and carnival creations; and the Happy and Glorious musical spectacle.
