Princess Eugenie was flooded with compliments from her fans after she shared an empowering message on Instagram. The Queen's granddaughter was raising awareness for her organisation The Anti-Slavery Collective and like-minded charity Stop the Traffik, both of which fight to prevent human trafficking.

Eugenie uploaded a photo during a visit to the latter and wrote: "I co-founded @the_anti_slavery_collective to bring together change-makers to raise awareness for modern slavery as a global epidemic. Today I met an incredible organisation, @stopthetraffik, who are empowering people to take action against #humantrafficking. Their intelligence-led STOP APP is the only one of its kind to combine community empowerment, big data management and anti-trafficking expertise to disrupt this horrific crime. #enditmovement."

Eugenie, 28, co-founded The Anti-Slavery Collective with one of her best friends, Julia de Boinville. Their mission is to raise awareness for modern slavery as a global epidemic. On their official website, Eugenie and Julia, or Jules as she is known, explained: "We met on the bus going on a school trip and we knew that this was just the beginning of a life-long adventure and friendship! After following each other around the world, then to Newcastle University, and into our careers; in 2012 we went on a trip to Kolkata, India."
