Princess Eugenie has announced she will be hosting a brand-new podcast with the co-founder of her charity.
Princess Eugenie and Julia de Boinville founded the charity The Anti-Slavery Collective which works to raise awareness about modern slavery and facilitate ways to combat it, according to its website.
Now, the pair have launched a podcast together called "Floodlight", and Princess Eugenie shared the announcement on her Instagram account.
In a caption, she explained that each weekly episode will feature an interview with a different individual who is working to combat modern slavery in some way.
She said that the line up will include a range of people “from all walks of life,” with everyone, “from lawmakers and company leaders to famous activists, survivors and journalists,” taking part.
The princess added that, “Floodlight shows you just how prominent modern slavery is and that we can all do something about it.”
The official description for the podcast episode states that, “there are more people in slavery today than at any other time in human history,” asking how this happens and, “what can we do to solve this epidemic?”
The first episode launched on Wednesday (27 April) and is available to listen to now. It stars Caroline Haughey OBE QC, a barrister who helped draft the Modern Slavery Act.
The episode synopsis explains that she discusses “the details of the case, the struggle bringing the perpetrators to justice, and how you can spot signs of modern slavery in your own life.”
In a release, Princess Eugenie explained that the Collective's story began, "in 2012 when Julia and I visited a safehouse for trafficked women in Kolkata, India. We were shocked to discover the extent to which slavery still exists."
She said the pair then spent the following five years speaking to everyone from "policy makers, law enforcement agencies and academics, to NGOs, social workers and survivors," to expand their understanding before establishing The Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017.
A new episode will launch each Wednesday and the podcast is available to listen to on a range of podcasting platforms, which you can find here.
You can find more information about modern slavery and the work being done to combat it on The Anti-Slavery Collective website.
