The Duchess of Sussex’s first appearance after leaving the royal family was revealed – Meghan pronounced a Disney documentary about elephants.
Her collaboration with the popular film company is to benefit the charity Elephants Without Borders – an organization that is dedicated to protecting wildlife and helping protect animals from poaching.
Meghan agreed to do the voice-over at the direct request of filmmakers, and is believed to have recorded it in London this fall after seeing footage of the documentary.
A trailer for Elephant revealed that it “accompanies a family’s extraordinary 1,000-mile journey through Africa on an adventure that will change their lives.”
It comes after the 35-year-old Duke of Sussex was filmed at Lion King’s UK premiere in July as he advertises Disney boss Bob Iger for his wife’s voice-over skills.

The DisneyNature documentary will air on Disney + on April 3, three days after she and Harry quit as Senior Royals, the company announced today.
It sees the African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo being led through the Kalahari desert by their great matriarch Gaia.
They will be exposed to dwindling resources and malevolent predators as they try to follow their ancestors’ traces into a green paradise.
Last year, the Duchess joked that she and Harry attended the premiere of The Lion King in London to promote the work, as the event footage revealed.

The Duke was also filmed when he introduced Disney wife Bob Iger to his wife’s voice-over skills in July.
In the shocking video, Prince Harry pointed to his wife and said, “Do you know she does voice over?” A surprised Mr. Iger replies: “I didn’t know that” before Harry continues: “You seem to be surprised, she is really interested.”
The Disney boss says, “We’d like to try it. It’s a great idea, ”while Meghan, who was next to Prince Harry, continues to speak to Beyonce.
Meghan gave up a successful career as an actress – her most important role is the US legal drama Suits – when she became engaged to Prince Harry in 2017.
But the agreement with Disney points to Meghan’s future career plans, in which the couple could use their celebrity status to help select ends.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will officially end their role as high-ranking kings on March 31, as they “work to become financially independent”.
After visiting the UK for their latest engagements, the couple returned to Canada, where they currently live with their 10-year-old Archie.
In May 2019, the royal couple received a rare award from Disney – a beautiful watercolor winnie the pooh animation to celebrate the birth of the new royal baby.
The heartwarming story was hand-drawn by high-ranking lead artist Kim Raymond and shows the world’s most popular bear Archie delivers a book to.
In the meantime, Prince Harry has become very interested in African conservation projects over the years and became President of African Parks in 2017.
