Star deemed Princess Eugenie "a bit tone deaf" upon announcing the launch of her podcast venture earlier in January. It is said to be "ironic" as the materials will tackle human trafficking and modern slavery while Prince Andrew is facing a sexual assault lawsuit.
Insiders told the outlet for its February 21 issue that several of the royal's friends expressed their concerns regarding the timing of her launch. "Considering [that] her father will likely end up in court," the set timetable for her new venture is "terrible."
But, despite the reported criticisms and worries, the youngest Princess of York is claimed to be "not fazed" about it. She cannot allegedly do anything as the "spotlight is already on her family."
What she can do, though, is to "speak out against these atrocities."
It is unclear whether there are, indeed, forms of negative feedback toward Princess Eugenie's advocacies. The same sources did not disclose any type of evidence to prove the allegations.
But, it is true that the royal-born Princess has been voicing out her concerns against modern slavery and trafficking. She, alongside friend Julie de Boinville, founded The Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017.
People said that the two women first met way back on a school trip. It seemingly appeared that their charity emerged after they travelled to India together and visited the Women's Interlink Foundation, where they "first became aware of modern slavery."
In one of their engagements, the York princess and de Boinville shared that the discovery "shocked" them, especially after learning the "extent" of slavery's existence in this day and age. They even asserted that "there are more enslaved people today than at any other point in history."
Years after working on their advocacies, the charity, along with its founders, revealed in January that they will launch a podcast series sometime this year. Princess Eugenie and Julia de Boinville, also, shared their excitement for the project in the initiative's monthly newsletter, according to Express UK.
The two personalities accompanied the announcement with a photo, showing them sitting on a sofa and recording with microphones. It comes with a caption, as well, saying that they were so "excited to begin recording" their long-waited podcast in 2022.
The publication consequently said that royal blogger Gert's Royals reposted the image. He claims that the picture was taken at the royal-born Princess's home.
Princess Eugenie currently lives at Frogmore Cottage with her husband Jack Brooksbank, as well as their first-born child, who turned one last week. They relocated to the royal property months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left it for the United States.
