With all the royal duties on their collective to-do list, it's a wonder that so many members of the Royal Family have time to do anything other than their official biz. But, it seems that The Firm are a real go-getting bunch, as Princess Eugenie just announced she's taking on another very exciting role: launching and presenting a podcast. We often don't even have enough time to listen to a podcast, let alone start our own series!

Following in the footsteps of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton on the podcast front, the royal took to Instagram this week to share the news of her upcoming venture. "My charity, @the_anti_slavery_collective is delighted to announce its new podcast, Floodlight," she told her 1.5 million followers on the social media platform.

"Join me, and my co-founder, Julia de Boinville each week as we sit down with guests from all walks of life who are helping to combat modern slavery in a variety of ways," the royal added. "From lawmakers and company leaders to famous activists, survivors and journalists, Floodlight shows you just how prominent modern slavery is and that we can all do something about it."

Floodlight, the 32-year-old royal points out, is already available to listen to on any of the usual sites you stream your podcasts on. "Just search Floodlight or follow the link in my bio to listen now," she wrote at the end of her post.

Eugenie's foray into the world of podcasts comes just weeks after cousin-in-law and good pal Meghan Markle released the first clip of her own groundbreaking podcast, Archetypes, following a lengthy drama with streaming giant Spotify.

"This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us," the former Suits actor said in a teaser clip from the series. "But where do these stereotypes come from? And how do they keep showing up and defining our lives?"

The Duchess of Sussex went on: "I’m Meghan, and this is Archetypes: the podcast where we dissect, explore and subvert the labels that try to hold women back. I’ll have conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape our narratives. And, I’ll talk to historians to understand how we even got here in the first place."

Meghan ended the teaser by telling us that Archetypes is "coming soon."

*Adds both to must-listen list*.
