Princess Eugenie's podcast has been announced as the royal joins legions of other podcasters across the globe. Her new project will be made in collaboration with her charity cofounder Julia de Boinville.

Princess Eugenie's podcast news was revealed in a newsletter from her charity, The Anti-Slavery Collective. She isn't the first of the Queen's grandchildren to start a podcast, as others including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle launched a new podcast recently.

Although not much information is known on the content of the Princess' new show, we know it's in collaboration with the charity. As well as this, the statement gave an idea of when we can expect it. It reads, "We were so excited to begin recording our long-awaited podcast this year, due to be released in 2022 so stay tuned!"

Alongside their news, the pair also shared a super cute photo of them, seemingly recording their show, beaming on a comfy cream sofa with microphones and some enviable bookshelves.

The Princess and Julia's relationship and how they came to set up their charity, and subsequently this podcast, were revealed in an Instagram post in October 2021.

It reads, "We met on the bus on our way to a school trip and knew at once that this was just the beginning of a life-long friendship and adventure!"

They then went on to study together at Newcastle University, and in 2012, during a trip to Kolkata, India that they first became aware of modern slavery. Their visit to a local organization called Women’s Interlink Foundation began their journey to co-found their own charitable organization. 

The post continues, "We spent the next 5 years educating ourselves. We became obsessive investigators and would visit anyone who could help us expand our knowledge; from policymakers, law enforcement agencies and academics, to NGOs, social workers and survivors." 

They concluded, "We asked everyone we encountered, ‘what can two young girls like us do to help?’ Without fail, the answer was always raise awareness. So this became our mission."

The announcement comes during a tumultuous time for the royal family and is only days after the Queen confirmed Prince Andrew has been stripped of military honors and his HRH title.
