Princess Eugenie is launching a new podcast about modern slavery.

Tech Tackles Trafficking will be hosted by both Eugenie and her close friend and human rights advocate Julia De Boinville.

The series will focus on the work of the women's charity, The Anti-Slavery Collective, and the many ways that slavery still exists around the world in the 21st century.

Eugenie and Julia founded the charity in 2017 and have since been raising awareness of these human rights abuses including human trafficking, child labour, and mental and physical restraints.

"The Anti-Slavery Collective’s mission is to bring people together because together, we’re so much more powerful and we can affect serious change," said Eugenie in a video launching the podcast.

"If we can do that and get people working in the same thing, sharing information, sharing what their best practices are then we can make a real difference."

"There are an estimated 40.3 million slaves in the world today," Julia said.

"We witnessed first-hand how many amazing charities there are in the UK and beyond, doing phenomenal work, so we wondered how we could highlight the work they are doing and raise awareness."

This is the first time that a member of the British royal family has presented a podcast series, but it isn't the first time a royal has founded one.

The Duchess of Cambridge launched a podcast series in 2016 alongside the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

The Child in Mind series was directed towards parents who may not know how to approach parenting a child with mental health issues.
