Meghan Markle Lends Her Voice to New Disney Film 'Elephant'

March 26, 2020

Meghan Markle has her first post-royal project in the works.

The Duchess of Sussex has lent her voice to an upcoming Disneynature documentary, "Elephant," announced on Thursday. The feature will begin streaming on Disney+ on April 3.

People reports that the former "Suits" star recorded the voiceover last fall in London.

Disneynature took to Twitter Thursday with the announcement of "Elephant" as well as a second film, titled "Dolphin Reef." The tweet reads, "Two new movies, unforgettable journeys. Start streaming Disneynature's Elephant, narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, and Disneynature's Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman, on April 3, only on #DisneyPlus."

According to People, the film "Elephant" will follow African elephant Shani and her son Jomo as they make their way across hundreds of miles of the Kalahari Desert, led by herd matriarch Gaia.

The project benefits Elephants Without Borders, a charitable organization dedicated to conserving wildlife and natural resources. The film will drop just days after Markle and Prince Harry have their last day as senior working royals on March 31.

This isn't the first time that Markle and Prince Harry have supported Elephants Without Borders. In 2017, the couple traveled to Botswana to help Dr. Mike Chase of the organization. They spent their time seeing the animals up-close while also helping in the conservation efforts.

The news of Markle's latest endeavor comes after rumors that she may be working on a project with Disney. While attending the London premiere of Disney's remake of "The Lion King," Prince Harry can be heard talking about Markle's talents to Disney CEO Bob Iger.

"You know she does voiceovers," Harry can be heard saying.
