“Sarah Ferguson interrupts promotion of her romance novel to make impassioned plea for climate change action”


Sarah Ferguson has revealed her crusade to fight climate change as she reveals that becoming a grandmother has made her ‘terrified’ of the state of the planet.

The Duchess of York, 63, who grew up on a farm and was surrounded by nature throughout her childhood, has revealed that her grandchildren August, Sienna and Wolfie gave her a sense of ‘urgency’ to do everything she could to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Writing in The Telegraph on Earth Day, Fergie spoke of her commitment to preserving the planet for the sake of younger generations.

Her article comes as her daughter Princess Eugenie, 33, shared a photo of two of Fergie’s grandchildren, August Brooksbank, two, and Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, one, enjoying the penguin enclosure at London Zoo.

Eugenie wrote that Sienna, Beatrice’s daughter, who was photographed for the first time in public, “has loved” going to London Zoo in Regent’s Park with her older cousin August, in a series of photos commemorating Earth Day.

The 63-year-old Duchess of York has written an article in the Telegraph revealing she has developed a sense of ‘urgency’ on the issue of climate change since becoming a grandmother

Writing about her commitment to preserving the environment for future generations, the Duchess of York said: ‘As I embark on a new phase of life as the grandmother of August, Sienna and Wolfie, my love of nature translates into a sense of urgency about climate change and the environment.

“I strongly feel that my generation has a responsibility to pass on a sustainable planet to our grandchildren.”

The Duchess added that her love of nature extends to animals as well, revealing that she is happiest while riding horses or tending to the late Queen’s corgis, Muick and Sandy.

Noting more extreme temperatures around the world as Britain experienced its hottest summers on record, Fergie argued that the issue of climate change was no longer up for debate.

Another thing she said couldn’t be ignored was that humans have been the cause of much of the damage done to the planet over the past century.

While calling for action on climate change, Fergie praised Princess Eugenie’s work with Project 0, for which she is an ambassador, in an effort to protect the ocean from plastic pollution.

The Duchess revealed that she also does her part, as an avid recycler who uses “environmentally friendly products” whenever possible.

Princess Eugenie also celebrated Earth Day with an Instagram post featuring photos of her son August and niece Sienna.

She posted a photo of the cousins ​​at London Zoo and said, “August and his cousin Sienna love going to London Zoo. It is part of the Zoological Society of London, a global conservation charity that helps restore habitats and protect wildlife. Every time you visit, you support their work.’

In the other photos, Princess Eugenie shows little August enjoying a BBC Earth experience, an immersive display from the BBC’s Natural History Unit.

The last photo in the series is a shot of little August walking through a picturesque forest full of blossoms with his father, Jack Brooksbank and the Labrador family.

About the last photo she wrote: “Because I love them and they love nature.”

Elsewhere, Eugenie posted a photo of her examining oysters as part of her coastal protection work.

She wrote, “Who knew oysters were so cool… one oyster can clean up to 200 liters of water a day.
