Princess Eugenie is following in the footsteps of her cousin Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle as she enters the podcast industry. Eugenie’s podcast, Floodlight, will focus on the fight against modern slavery, something the Princess is very involved in, having co-founded the Anti-Slavery Collective charity.

Princess Eugenie has announced she will front a new weekly podcast that will focus on the fight against modern slavery.

Announcing the news on her Instagram, Eugenie confirmed that she and Julia de Boinville will co-host the weekly show, which is being presented by the podcast network Stak and The Anti-Slavery Collective, a charity that Eugenie and Julia co-founded.

In her announcement, Eugenie explained what to expect from the podcast, writing, “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.”

Fans online praised Eugenie’s efforts to tackle a problem facing people across the globe.

One wrote, “Thank you for this. We hear so much about slavery in the past but people fail to realise that it is as prevalent today as it was. I will certainly have a listen.”

Another added, “Now this is a podcast I want to listen to! Already learned so much through @the_anti_slavery_collective these past few years. Thank you sharing your knowledge and seeking change ladies.”

The podcast will be available to stream on all major platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Eugenie’s new venture will see her following in the footsteps of the likes of Prince Harry and Meghan, who signed a lucrative Spotify deal to deliver a series of original and engaging podcasts.

Meghan’s podcast, Archetypes, was recently given a release date, and its focus will be on the labels and stereotypes traditionally forced on women.

Over the last few years, several other members of the royal family have embraced the podcasting network.

Kate Middleton appeared on the podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby in 2020 to talk about her experiences with pregnancy and parenting, while Prince William recorded a special episode of Apple's Time to Walk series and more recently appeared on Cate Blanchett's new eco-focused Climate of Change podcast where he called himself a “stubborn optimist” about the climate crisis.
