"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.
Princess Eugenie had a fairytale wedding last October when she married Jack Brooksbank at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. It was a day full of love and celebration, but the couple had barely walked down the aisle when baby chatter started.
Rumours and speculation about when Eugenie will start a family have been following the pair around since their wedding day.
Both the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge have been hit with similar speculation to Eugenie. Meghan had only just given birth to baby Archie when headlines about when she’ll have her second child were splashed across tabloids.
We may think saying things like, ‘When will we hear the pitter patter of tiny feet?’ is harmless but we shouldn’t presume a newly married woman wants or can have children. They may be struggling with fertility issues or they simply may not want to be a mum.
We need to stop speculating and remember that regardless of their royal titles and lavish weddings, the royals may face fertility issues and pregnancy struggles like thousands of women around the world.
However, unlike Princess Eugenie we don’t have to read about our family plans in every national newspaper or listen to the public speculate when our tummy looks a little bigger than usual.
Jack sobbed as Eugenie was escorted up the aisle by her dad the Duke of York.
Apparently, Jack said: “Oh… my heart… Oh, break my heart,” as Eugenie walked up the aisle.
Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in front of celebrity friends and members of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II and husband Prince Philip were in attendance, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Charles and a host of celebrities.
Just a day after our heart's MELTED as Princess Eugenie married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank in St George's Chapel in Windsor, the beaming couple have already released four official royal wedding photos.
Princess Eugenie wore an incredible a Peter Pilotto wedding gown (designed by Pilotto and Christopher de Vos) for the ceremony – which incorporated a number of meaningful, personal symbols to the princess, such as a shamrock as a nod to her Irish heritage – and contrary to reports, did change into a formal evening dress for her evening reception at her family home in Windsor Lodge – a beautiful silk Zac Posen creation. The American designer, according to Buckingham Palace, was inspired by Windsor and the surrounding countryside and "the blush of an English rose," when designing the dress.
In the other three photos released, the bridal party was captured in the White Drawing Room in Windsor, including a beaming Prince George next to his sister Princess Charlotte with Jack alongside Theodora, the daughter of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field, and the rest of the page boys and flower girls.
A separate shot was also taken with the immediate members of the royal family, including Princess Eugenie's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip and her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Her now-husband's parents were also in the photograph.
Finally, a beautiful black and white portrait of the happy couple sharing a kiss during the carriage procession was released. The couple said they were "delighted" to share the pictures with the public.
The photos were taken by British fashion photographer Alex Bramall, who said it was "an honour and a privilege" to be invited to photograph the couple. He previously shot the Princess for a profile in Harper's Bazaar.
Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in front of their nearest and dearest friends, members of the royal family and 850 guests who were invited to join them on the special day, including celebrity friends such as Liv Tyler, Demi Moore and Cara Delevingne.
They looked genuinely in love and thrilled to be tying the knot, as we all say from the ITV broadcast which attracted over 3 million viewers – the highest view count for the channel since Will and Kate's marriage in 2011.
Sarah Ferguson arrived at St George's Chapel to witness her youngest daughter Princess Eugenie marry her fiancé and long-time boyfriend Jack Brooksbank.
Wearing an emerald green dress which show-cased her glamour, the Duchess of York donned an amusing green hat as she climbed the chapel stairs. The dress was made by local Ascot dress maker Emma Louise Design.
It seems to be the hat that’s gaining more attention than the dress, for once. It would be more suited to Hogwarts than Windsor Castle tbh.
It’s resemblance to the famous golden snitch from the Harry Potter Quidditch franchise has not gone amiss:
The hat was nearly blown away in the wind as she attended the wedding, but the wings probably would have carried it to safety, or else strategically landed on Princess Eugenie’s head to get the best view of the wedding.
Who knows, maybe two teams of Quidditch players would have chased it around the grounds on broomsticks?
Ferguson may even be showing her Harry Potter house colours, who would have thought she’d be Team Slytherin?
Princess Beatrice, elder sister and Maid of Honour to Princess Eugenie, has broken a slight tradition with her outfit for the royal wedding and opted for an outfit of colour, after some experts expected her to wear a more pastel colour in line with the bride, as Pippa Middleton did to sister Kate's marriage to Prince William. And she also opted to arrive with her mother, rather than the bride as was expected.
She arrived at St. George's Chapel in Windsor alongside her mother, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, wearing a boatneck-style Ralph & Russo dress, which was a vibrant royal blue. It was accompanied by a simple purple fascinator.
Eugenie's wedding dress code was quite strict (men had to wear morning coats and women day dresses), and Beatrice followed the rules to a T by perfectly matching her fascinator to her dress (as the royals do) and a pair of heels. Her style for the day, was fittingly, more demure than on previous occasions so that her sister would take centre stage.
A Maid of Honour isn't quite as big a tradition in Britain as it is here or in the US, but the royal family confirmed that Beatrice would take the role by sharing a sweet family snap of the two sisters on social media.
The elder sibling was also notably there as a support to her mother, who though no longer officially in the royal family, naturally played a key part in the wedding. Despite the Duke and Duchess or York separating many years ago, they still live together and are frequently seen out at public events supporting both their daughters.
Eugenie accessorised her look by matching the tiara with emerald earrings.
The diamond drop earrings are a gift from the groom, Jack Brooksbank.
Eugenie’s wedding shoes are by Charlotte Olympia and she carried a bouquet by Patrice van Hellen Oakes.

Guests have started to arrive at Windsor Castle ahead of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding.
The lovebirds are set to tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel this morning and it’s safe to say there’s been quite the turnout.
A mass amount of celebrities including Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Kate Moss and Robbie Williams have arrived at the chapel, but the public has been waiting with baited breathe for Kate and Meghan to arrive.
The Duchess York has officially fired back at the Daily Mail, and we could not agree more with what she had to say. Get it, mama!
Sarah Ferguson could not believe the content of the scathing article Jan Moir at the Daily Mail penned about her daughter.
Princess Eugenie recently announced that that her wedding will be held in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, and 1200 seats will be open for the public to attend.
Hold your breath: #royalwedding2 is coming

The CEO questioned what the article’s purpose was: ‘Is it to make a young couple feel embarrassed or ashamed of the choices they have made for their wedding day or it is to invite anger and hatred towards them?’
She also called the article ‘tantamount to bullying’ and said the Daily Mail’s words were ‘unfounded and hurtful abuse’.
Eugenie’s mother posted the letter with the caption: ‘Couldn’t agree more with this letter about the disgusting article that Jan Moir wrote about @princesseugenie and Jack. Bullying at its’ premium and hiding behind a newspaper commenting about people you’ve never met.’
It seems that Sarah Ferguson is not going to lie down while her daughter’s reputation is slandered by a widespread publication based on ‘unfounded’ grounds. Girls have got to stick together!
The charity CEO then ended the letter with: ‘It is imperative that we support freedom of expression, but not when the intended outcome is to inflict pain on another person or incite others to do so.
‘And Jan Moir’s article does just that.’
Commenters have expressed their support for the Duchess and her daughter Jeanie, and could not believe that Jan’s article had been approved by the newspaper.
‘Good for You Ms. Sarah! Awesome retart. All Mom's should take a page from your book!’ One mum from Texas replied.
‘Absolutely disgraceful article and it’s about time Moir was sacked ! Daily Mail get your act together.. bullying on an epic scale,’ said another comment.
We have yet to see a response from Jan Moir or the Daily Mail, but we're glad to see Sarah Ferguson is making a stand against uncalled for negativity and what another commenter called, 'defamation of character'.
