    ‘They painted murals themed around freedom and what it meant to each survivor.

    Earlier this month Eugenie celebrated her three year anniversary with her husband Jack Brooksbank. 

    Jack – who shares son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, eight months – with Eugenie, is the European Brand Director for Casamigos tequila which was founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber. 

    It’s believed Eugenie is on maternity leave from her role at gallery Hauser & Wirth where she’s a director, but she’s been keeping busy with her philanthropic interests.








    This month, she had an article published in Spear’s magazine, which she co-wrote with Clare Brook, CEO of the Blue Marine Foundation, calling for greater protection of the world’s oceans.

    ‘There is only one ocean. The challenges it faces are sadly man-made and most can be turned around if we act now. If we work together to protect it, the ocean will protect us – in perpetuity,’ she said.

    However, it’s no doubt been a rocky week for the York family as Prince Andrew’s legal woes rumble on.

    This month marked Eugenie's three year anniversary with her husband Jack. Jack - who shares son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, eight months - with Eugenie, is an ambassador for Casamigos tequila which was founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber.
