Princess Eugenie has shared a sweet picture as she welcomed a new CEO to her charity.

The Princess of York posted a smiling picture of herself and Sarah Woodcock on her Instagram accompanied by a glowing description of her new co-worker.

Eugenie co-founded the anti-slavery charity in 2017, which advocates to end modern slavery worldwide.

In the photo, the princess stands next to Woodcock smiling beaming into the camera wearing a black blazer with gold buttons and a delicate necklace.

The post read: “We are thrilled to introduce our new CEO Sarah Woodcock at The Anti Slavery Collective.

“Sarah brings over a decade of impactful leadership from her time at ActionAid. She has been a driving force in pioneering innovative approaches to global fundraising, demonstrating impact, strategic partnership development, and programme design.”

The princess co-founded the charity with her friend Julia De Boinville in an attempt to find solutions to tackle modern slavery.

Eugenie continued: “As she takes the helm as CEO of The Anti Slavery Collective, we are confident that her visionary and unwavering dedication will propel us toward our shared goal of ending modern slavery worldwide.

“Join us in welcoming her to our team as we embark on this transformative journey together.”

Last year, the princess launched the podcast Floodlight to promote the charity’s causes.

Former Prime Minister, Theresa May, was the first guest to appear on the podcast due to her political history of fighting against modern slavery.

Despite being the nieces of King Charles, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are not working members of the Royal Family.

However, they are both patrons of several charities and have careers of their own.

Earlier this month, a royal commentator claimed that royal charities are “crying out” for the York Princesses to step up.

Royal commentator Phil Dampier said: “Many organisations and charities are crying out for a royal patron and would welcome them. They already have 30 or so between them so why not a few more?

“They are both pleasant intelligent women who are now wives and mothers with experience of life.

“Beatrice and Eugenie are grandchildren of the late Queen and as such would get a lot of respect from the public.”
