Lady Amelia Windsor has sent some of her clothes off to enjoy new adventures after having a spring clean of her wardrobe in aid of charity.

The royal, who is the granddaughter of the Queen's cousin, the Duke of Kent, raised £233 for Cross River Gorilla Project over the weekend via Depop, selling some of her clothes through the app. 

She posted on Instagram: "Had a Spring-ish clean of my wardrobe and selected some items to sell on @depop. 

"I’ve had many a happy time in these pieces but they’re now ready for new friends and new adventures. 

"All sales will be going to the charity @crossrivergorilla."

Lady Amelia, who is 42nd in line to the throne, is passionate about sustainability and eco issues within fashion, and is an ambassador for No More Plastic, and the Fashion Round Table.

Items on the model's shop ranged in price from £8 to £50 and included a Dolce and Gabbana bralette top which the royal described as "used". 

Other items included a vintage cardigan, high waisted jeans with daisies across them, and a skirt covered in strawberries.

One of the most expensive items was an Emporio Armani cardigan which she sold for £50.

The sales supported UK based Cross River Gorilla Project which says it was set up to "support the existing conservation efforts of the critically endangered Cross River Gorilla and to provide support to the local rainforest communities".

Lady Amelia, once dubbed the most beautiful royal by society magazine Tatler, is patron of the charity.

Her eco credentials go before her as she also made some of her clothes available to rent back in November.

Lady Amelia put some of her pieces onto By Rotation which allows people to borrow them for a few days or a week at a time.

She decided all the money generated will go to the Henry Dickens Community centre in West London. The centre was part of the response to the Grenfell Tower fire and continue to run activities for children.

She said: “I love the fact that you can share a piece of clothing with a community and have different adventures in it and it can give happiness to lots of people.”

Back in 2018, she told the Telegraph: “We’re all aware of the huge plastic crisis and the effect it’s having on our planet.

“Fashion has a key role in that, but then also there are ways we can deal with it. Stella McCartney is someone to look up to in that sense, she makes the bigger point in her collection that you can be sustainable and stylish.”

The royal was bumped two places down in the line of succession because of the arrival of Princess Eugenie's son in February and then Prince Harry's daughter in June.

She'll be 42nd by the end of the year when Princess Beatrice has her first child.

She's the only one of her siblings to still be in the line of succession as her older brother and sister have both been confirmed into the Catholic Church and so given up their places. 

Her grandfather, the Duke of Kent, carries out royal duties for the Queen, but is likely to reduce these following his decision to step down as president of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, where Wimbledon is held each year.
