Bella Hadid hasn't been shy about voicing her political opinions — she's protested President Trump's stance on immigration and routinely takes to social media to share her frustration with the administration's policies. On Friday, Hadid once again took to protesting, this time in response to Trump's recent decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Hadid, whose father Mohamed is of Palestinian descent, was in London to celebrate the opening of Tag Heuer's new flagship store in the city. She attended a public protest – carrying a "Free Palestine" sign and all – while still clad in her floor-length red-carpet gown from the event. Her bodyguard, who can be spotted by her side during almost any of her public appearances, was close at hand.

Hadid also took to Instagram to voice her thoughts on the Middle East, saying, "Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write. Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace."
