Princess Eugenie spotted having lunch with A-lister as circle of celebrity friends grows


    Princess Eugenie appears to have gained yet another A-lister friend as she was spotted stepping out of an Italian restaurant in Notting Hill, Chucs, accompanied by model and designer Camila Alves. Pictures taken outside of the restaurant show the pair walking arm-in-arm and sharing a warm hug.

    Eugenie and Ms Alves appear to share a similar fashion sense as they were both wearing camel coats for their outing.

    After their lunch, the pair left in the same chauffeur-driven car, Richard Eden wrote in his daily column.

    A fellow diner at the restaurant told the Daily Mail while commenting on the relationship between the princess and the model: “They seemed to be great friends.”

    Mr Eden added it isn’t clear how the pair know each other, but noted they are both involved in charities.

    Ms Alves is well-linked to Hollywood as she is the wife of Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey.

    Eugenie is known to be friend with a number of celebrities, including singer Ellie Goulding.

    At her wedding with Jack Brooksbank, celebrated at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in October 2018, Eugenie’s guest list included actresses Demi Moore and Liv Tyler as well as model Cara Delevingne.

    The lunch between Ms Alves and Princess Eugenie reportedly took place on Tuesday, the same day in which King Charles III’s niece joined her friend Julia De Boinville to mark Anti-Slavery Day.

    The pair, who co-founded The Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017, headed to Trafalgar Square to view a free exhibition called Art Is Freedom curated and created by survivors of modern day slavery, who shared their artworks and photographs.

    The event was co-curated also by Eugenie and Ms De Boinville’s Collective in partnership with another charity called Hestia, which supports adults and children in time of crisis.

    Taking to her Instagram account, Eugenie invited people to visit the free exhibition, writing: “I really encourage you to see this exhibition so you can see what you can do to help end modern slavery as well as supporting such strong, courageous artists and survivors. The exhibition is at Trafalgar Square, London Bridge station and outside South Kensington underground station.”

    Princess Eugenie and Ms De Boinville had previously said they first became aware of modern slavery in 2012, during a trip to India where they visited an organization called Women’s Interlink Foundation.


    The Collective has the goal to eradicate modern slavery by putting the spotlight on the issue affecting millions of people around the world and bringing together change-makers.

    Eugenie has never been a working member of the Royal Family but has nevertheless become associated with several charities as patron over the years.

    The organisations she has become involved with over the years are all linked to causes close to her heart, such as raising awareness on scoliosis, an issues she was diagnosed with when she was younger and for which she underwent surgery.
