Princess Eugenie: Expert on how the royal highlighted the cause
Princess Eugenie took to Instagram to share the exciting news, two years after Meghan and Prince Harry signed a multi-year deal with Spotify to produce exclusive audio content and podcasts. The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson announced in a post on Wednesday morning that her charity, The Anty Slavery Collective, is launching her new podcast.
The weekly program is called Projector and will host an array of guests discussing modern slavery and how to end it.
Princess Eugenie co-hosts the podcast with her close friend Julia de Boinville, who co-founded the Collective with her – an organization aimed at raising awareness of modern slavery and finding ways to end it.
The Princess’ message read: “My charity, @the_anti_slavery_collective is delighted to announce its new podcast, Floodlight.
“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 various ways.

“We want to thank all of our guests for joining us, and @stakpod for bringing this project to life.
“It’s available wherever you listen to podcasts, just search Floodlight or follow the link in my bio to listen now!”
Eugenie also shared a promotional photo for the podcast, showing herself and Ms De Boinville.

Meghan Markle’s Archetypes podcast will be released this summer
The couple have already released the first episode of their new venture, a 37-minute show in which they talk about modern slavery with Caroline Haughey OBE QC – a lawyer who helped draft the modern slavery law and led the prosecution for Operation Fort, the largest human trafficking ring ever uncovered in the UK.
Princess Eugenie is not the first member of the royal family to host a podcast.
In December 2020, Meghan and Prince Harry led a special holiday episode, shortly after news broke that they had signed a deal with Spotify.
During the special episode, the couple reflected on 2020 and welcomed an array of guests, including comedian James Corden and singer Sir Elton John.

Several months later, on March 24, the Sussexes’ audio production company – Archewell Audio – announced that the Duchess would be leading a new podcast, called Archetypes.
The program aims to investigate the labels and stereotypes fabricated to “try to hold women back”.
Archetypes will launch this summer and feature “uncensored conversations” on the subject.
In a trailer released last month, Meghan can be heard saying, “This is Archetypes, the podcast where we dissect, explore and subvert the labels that try to hold women back.

“I will have conversations with women who know all too well how these typographies shape our stories.
“And I will talk to historians to understand how we got here in the first place.”
Spotify isn’t the only streaming giant the Duke and Duchess of Sussex work with.
Two years ago, after stepping down as senior royals, Meghan and Harry also signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce docuseries and children’s shows, among other shows.

The duo have so far announced the production of two products – Heart of Invictus, centered on the Invictus Games and its participants, and Pearl, an animated series retracing the adventures of a young girl.
Princess Eugenie and the Sussexes are not the only ones within the Firm to have set foot in the world of podcasts.
In February 2020, Kate appeared as a special guest on an episode of Happy Mum, Happy Baby by Giovanna Fletcher.
During the 30-minute show, the Duchess spoke candidly about motherhood, her pre-birth preparation and her own childhood and how it inspires her as a mother.
