Princess Eugenie has shared a throwback picture of her visit to Australia in 2009 as she voices her support to those affected by the bushfires

The royal, 29, shared the picture of her as a teenager visiting Mogo Wildlife Park with her aunt Jane Ferguson in New South Wales.

The black and white pictures show her casually dressed in a hoodie, laughing as a meerkat sits on her lap. 

Another snap captures two ferrets cheekily climbing up her clothes, while a third sees her aunt holding a serval wild cat, and further pictures see the Wildlife Park with smoke in the distance.

The park closed during the tragic bushfires, but has now reopened – after the zoo’s staff risked their lives and stayed to fight the fire to save the animals during the fire. 

And Eugenie shared her support for the sancutary, writing: ‘I was lucky enough to go to @mogowildlifepark in 2009 whilst visiting my Aunt in Australia. 

‘It was such an incredible experience to be with the animals and meet such a dedicated team of people supporting these magnificent creatures. 

‘Mogo Wildlife Park reopened this past weekend after the devastating bushfires threatened the park and lives of the keepers and animals.

‘Chad Staples, the zoo’s director, received a text ‘leave now to the east towards the beach and shelter in place’, but he and his team chose instead to stay and fight the fire to save the park. 

‘I’m in awe of how human determination and drive can overcome such terrifying circumstances and I wanted to share this story of hope after what Australia has been through. 

‘All my thoughts have been and are with all those who are affected by the fires in Australia. @mogowildlifepark @zookeeper_chad’.
