By Heather Cichowski

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank volunteered with the Salvation Army UK during the coronavirus pandemic.

The younger Princess of York revealed the royal engagement on May 13 on Instagram. The 30-year-old stated that she and Jack had been invited to the Salvation Army UK's newly created hub.

"Since 1865 the Salvation Army has been there with open doors to help so many people," Eugenie wrote.

"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," she continued.

"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.

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

The royal included photos from her and Jack's visit. In the images, both of them are hard at work organizing and packing food supplies with the other volunteers.

Each one of them sported a neon yellow Salvation Army vest. The princess wore her dark hair swept back into a low ponytail. She was dressed casually in a deep green shirt with white T-shirt, black skinny jeans and white sneakers.

Jack wore a blue button-down shirt, black trousers, brown shoes and round glasses.

Princess Eugenie, her mom the Duchess of York, her elder sister Princess Beatrice and Jack have been lending helping hands during the COVID-19 pandemic where they can.

At the end of March, it was reported that the group had been dropping off care packages to London hospitals.

The gifts were intended to support the hospital staff who are working long shifts in light of the COVID-19 emergency. The care packages were thought to include food and self-care supplies, such as dried pasta, cereal bars, anti-bacterial wipes, soap and more.

As of this writing, Johns Hopkins University of Medicine reports there have been more than 4.3 million cases of COVID-19 confirmed in 188 countries and regions with over 230,000 cases confirmed in the United Kingdom. The illness has killed more than 294,000 people worldwide, but more than 1.5 million people have recovered from it so far.
