Meghan Markle lands post-Megxit job narrating Disney elephant movie
Meghan Markle has landed her first post-Megxit job with Disney after Prince Harry touted her for work at the Lion King premiere.
The Duchess of Sussex was today confirmed as the narrator for Disney+’s new show Elephant after her husband was filmed suggesting her for a job, according to news/11262705/meghan-markle-disney-role/” target=”_self” type=”[object Object]” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>The Sun.
The Disneynature channel made the announcement on Twitter, writing: “Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.”
It comes after Prince Harry was filmed revealing his wife’s interest to be involved in a project to Disney chief Bob Iger at the London premiere of the Lion King in July last year while the couple were still royals.
In the astonishing video, the Duke, 35, pointed to his wife and said in hushed tones: “You do know she does voiceovers?”
Mr Iger, looking surprised, replies “ah I did not know that”, before Harry continues “you seem surprised, she’s really interested”.
The Disney bigwig says: “We’d love to try. That’s a great idea”.
It is understood Meghan lent her voice to the film in return for a donation to a wildlife charity.
Meghan and Harry are now in Canada after quitting as royals earlier this year.
The couple moved to North America after announcing they wanted to become “financially independent”.
They returned to the UK this month to complete their final engagements as royals, but left baby Archie, who is ten months, back in Canada.
