Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren’t the only royals with Hollywood connections—Princess Eugenie was recently spotted hanging out in London with Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey’s wife.
Eugenie And Alves Step Out In London
The pair was spotted hugging on the street before walking into a restaurant in London’s Notting Hill area. Eugenie and Alves were dressed in contrast, with the princess in all black and Alves in all white.
The duo was also seen leaving Chucs restaurant in the same chauffeur-driven car. “They seemed to be great friends,” one of the other diners at Chucs told the Daily Mail.
It’s unclear how or when the two first met, but it seems that they are very close friends. Alves isn’t Eugenie’s only high-profile friend. Her wedding guest list included actresses Demi Moore and Liv Tyler, as well as British stars like Cara Delevigne and Jimmy Carr.
The Pair’s Charity Work
Some have hypothesized that the pair met through charity work. Both Eugenie and Alves have a history of humanitarian work—Alves with the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation she founded with her husband, and Eugenie with her work to end sex trafficking and slavery.
According to the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation’s website, the organization was created “to empower high school students by providing them with the tools to lead active lives and make healthy choices for a better future.”
Eugenie’s First Public Appearance Since Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral
Princess Eugenie’s first public appearance since the death of Queen Elizabeth was also for a good cause. The princess attended an art exhibit put on by The Anti-Slavery Collective, an organization she and her friend Julia de Boinville co-founded in 2017 to fight trafficking and slavery.
“The Art is Freedom exhibition has supported survivors of modern slavery of all ages, from across the world, for five years now. It is inspiring to see the project give survivors the opportunity to express their feelings, emotions and stories through art,” the princess said in a statement about the exhibit.
She continued, “This exhibition serves as a space to dispel the stigma around survivors, and let their stories speak for themselves. This year, the Anti-Slavery Collective is honoured to be co-curating the exhibition, and we look forward to helping to shine a light on this important issue.”
As Eugenie continues to raise awareness about these issues and grow her organization, it’s likely she’ll continue rubbing shoulders with big stars like Alves and her husband.
