Princess Eugenie helps out most ‘vulnerable’ people in society in surprising way | Royal | News

The princess recently helped the Salvation Army to deliver food parcels to those who need it most, and now she has shared a tribute to hospital workers and the countries most vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic. On her Instagram story, the royal posted a story that mentioned cereal company Mornflake, who has been delivering their products to hospitals so that staff can enjoy a proper breakfast.

Mornflake has also partnered with Defra (Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) to deliver parcels to the nation’s most vulnerable.

Eugenie wrote on her Instagram story: “Thank you to @mornflake who have been donating 100s of bags of their oats to hospital workers but also over a million now to the @defrauk care package scheme- a national initiative which sends care parcels out to vulnerable people across the country.”

The royals have not let lockdown prevent them from assisting in charitable endeavours.

Yesterday they helped the Salvation Army to pack boxes of food alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Eugenie uploaded a snap of them on to her personal Instagram account.

The princess captioned the photo: “Since 1865 the Salvation Army has been there with open doors to help so many people.

“In the past few years I have witnessed first hand their dedication and hard work, so when they invited Jack and I to their newly created hub to pack boxes, we jumped at the chance.

The York’s are not the only royal family members who have been doing their part during the national crisis.

Prince William and Duchess Kate have helped launch a new mental health initiative for COVID-19 first responders called Our Frontline.

The program will allow frontline workers digital access to mental health-related sources, toolkits and more to ensure their emotional wellbeing is supported.

“Over the past few weeks, millions of frontline workers across the UK have put their physical and mental health on the line to protect us all during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Every day they confront traumatic situations at the same time as having to contend with their own worries about the risks to themselves and their families,” read a statement from the Duke of Cambridge.

“That takes a real toll, and as I’ve seen for myself through my work with the Air Ambulance, without the right support at the right time the challenges they face will only be greater.

“Catherine and I, together with The Royal Foundation, will do all we can to support Our Frontline. This work will be our top priority for the months ahead.”

The Cambridges’ Royal Foundation is set to lead support for the new initiative alongside the mental health charity Mind, crisis text service Shout, as well as Samaritans and Hospice UK.

Following the announcement of the program, William is scheduled to head a roundtable discussion with emergency service workers and mental health experts.

The couple have also shared photographs and videos of their family clapping for the NHS
