Posting a short clip to Instagram, the mum-of-one – who is a global ambassador for the cosmetics giant – opted against showing off her matching bikini top, and instead wore a breast cancer T-shirt from the company.

Enjoying a splash in her beautiful surroundings, Elizabeth wrote: "I’m on my #pretendvacation, but on #WorldCancerDay, my thoughts are with all those affected by cancer.

"As the Global Ambassador for @esteelaudercompanies Breast Cancer Campaign, I am honoured to support all of The Campaign’s incredible work in its mission to create a breast cancer-free world.

Elizabeth revealed she has friends battling breast cancer

"Female breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide so it’s more important than ever to self-check, stay on top of routine screenings and take care of our health. I have several friends battling breast cancer right now. It’s #TimeToEndBreastCancer #ELCambassador."

Many of Elizabeth's fans applauded her message, while others were blown away by her age-defying appearance. "Love this," responded one. "Still an absolute beauty," said another. A third wrote: "Such a stunning woman."

Earlier this week, Elizabeth nearly broke the internet again when she shared a joyful clip of herself splashing around in a swimming pool wearing a bright blue bikini.
