Princess Eugenie becomes the first royal to launch her own podcast
Princess Eugenie is making waves as a princess, and her latest project has fans buzzing. The 29-year-old is about to become the first ever royal to launch a podcast, and the topic looks fascinating.
The Anti-Slavery Collective, which she co-founded with her best friend Julia De Boinville in 2017, announced via Instagram that Eugenie and Julia will co-host the Freedom United podcast.
The podcast aims to raise awareness about modern slavery, Eugenie explains; "We are developing a podcast, Freedom United, and we will have a speaker series called 'Tech Tackles Trafficking.'"
The princess adds; "Now is the time to talk about this, this is on everyone's minds. And if it isn't, we will make it on their mind."
Fellow members of the British royal family have appeared on podcasts in the past, such as when Prince Harry interviewed Barack Obama in 2017 for BBC Radio 4's current affairs show, Today.
Eugenie, however, is the first royal to launch her own; "We are doing this for the person who can't scream and shout like we can, for the women, girls, men, children all over the world."
Speaking about the new initiative, Eugenie said;
"This is a whole, much bigger issue that's a hidden crime; it's forced labour, forced marriage, domestic servitude, it's people not being paid correctly, it's the 2004 Chinese cockle pickers that died in Morecambe Bay."
A launch date for the podcast has yet to be announced, but judging by how important the discussion around modern slavery currently is, she'll have plenty of listeners.
