Princess Eugenie joins mom Sarah Ferguson on 'Storytime with Fergie and Friends'

By Heather Cichowski

Sarah Ferguson was joined by a special guest on her "Storytime with Fergie and Friends" series on May 25: Princess Eugenie!

The Duchess of York launched a YouTube channel to debut the series in April in an effort to keep youngsters entertained during the coronavirus pandemic. In the latest instalment, her youngest daughter read All in One Piece by Jill Murphy.

The children's story is from 2006 and is about a family of elephants named the Larges. Mr. and Mrs. Large are getting ready for the office dinner dance. However, things aren't going to be easy with children Lester, Laura, Luke and the baby around. The book's description reads, "They'll be lucky to get out of the house all in one piece!"

"My darling daughter, there's nobody more in the world, that I love more in the world than you and Beatrice and I'm just so grateful to you both for supporting me during this crazy, this crazy time and for reading this story, Eug," Sarah said in a voiceover at the start of the video.

For the recent reading, the married royal wore a navy blue, black and white plaid jacket and dark top. Her hair was styled straight and she was beautifully fresh faced.

All In One Piece was an appropriate read for the 30-year-old Princess of York because she is focused on elephant conservation, like other members of the Royal Family. Eugenie and the duchess are both supporters of the Elephant Family, a charity campaigning to protect the Asian Elephant and its habitat.

Fergie's daughter also explained at the start of the video that elephants are her favourite animal!

Eugenie previously appeared on her mom's channel to read Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney at the end of April. In both cases, the British royal read as she sat on a rope swing in a sunny garden.

According to HELLO! UK, the swing is personalized with her name on it! It is likely a special piece from her childhood because Eugenie has been isolating at Royal Lodge in Windsor with her mother and her husband, Jack Brooksbank.

Other familiar faces have made appearances on the Duchess of York's YouTube channel including actress Cressida Bonas(Prince Harry's ex), actor Stephen Fry and Tessy De Nassau, formerly Princess Tessy of Luxembourg.

Eugenie and her hubby recently volunteered at the Salvation Army UK during the COVID-19 pandemic. On May 13, the youngest Princess of York uploaded photos to Instagram of her and Jack hard at work packing supplies at the Salvation Army UK's newly created hub.

"As a group of volunteers we helped pack trolleys of food that are then taken and distributed to the Army's hugely important and much needed food banks that feed thousands across the UK," she wrote in the caption.

"Their message is key – their doors are open, always have been and always will be," Eugenie concluded.
