Meghan Markle First Post-Royal Gig Is Narrating a Disney Documentary on Elephants

There has been a ton of speculation surrounding Meghan, Duchess of Sussex‘s first big move now that she is no longer a senior working member of the British royal family. We’d know for some time that the duchess has snagged a voice-over role with Disney. Now we know exactly what that role is.

Now that the duchess is no longer beholden to the rules and regulations of royal life, she is free is to explore her passions in a less confining manner. Prior to getting engaged to Prince Harry in 2017, the American-born duchess had a starring role in the long-running USA drama, Suits. She was also extremely passionate about her charity work.

Now, with this new Disney documentary on elephants, it appears that Meghan is combining her passions in a way that we never expected.

Meghan Markle might be interested in returning to Hollywood

Though it’s doubtful that she will ever return to a show as a series regular, the Duchess of Sussex might be considering a return to Hollywood.

“Meghan remains hugely ambitious and is very open-minded to a return to acting which is what she knows, loves and does best,” an alleged insider told The Sun. “Her preference is to explore the route of a documentary in which she is able to follow up some of the causes she is interested in. This wish has been the focus of some of her most recent meetings and will likely shape the kind of work the agent Meghan goes with seeks to get for her. She is very excited about what the future holds.”

🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘 Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant…ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! 🐘 Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB – Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . 📸 by DOS © SussexRoyal Additional photos: EWB

Meghan Markle doesn’t care what anyone says about her

As she embarks on a new phase of her life, the Duchess of Sussex is more than aware that her choices will be analyzed and scrutinized. However, outside of the glaring spotlight of royal life, she is more than prepared for that.

“From the moment that I found a wife that was strong enough to be able to stand up for what we believe in together, has basically scared them so much that they’ve now come out incredibly angry, they’ve come out fighting, and all they will try and do now is try and destroy our reputation and try and, you know, sink us,” Prince Harry explained candidly in a leaked phone call. “But what they don’t understand is the battle we are fighting against them is far more than just us. Even though they want to make it personal they are scared because we are some of the first two people willing to stand up to their bullying and my wife, we can’t stand back. It hasn’t been very nice. It’s been horrible but we will come out of it stronger people.”

Meghan Markle is voicing the Disneynature documentary ‘Elephant’

The Duchess of Sussex’s latest project will debut sooner than later. Disney just announced that Meghan will narrate Disneynature’s Elephant streaming April 3 on Disney+.

The official description for the film reads, “Elephant follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd make an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert. Led by their great matriarch, Gaia, the family faces brutal heat, dwindling resources and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.”

The Duchess of Sussex has always been passionate about Elephants. In 2017, she along with Prince Harry traveled to Botswana to assist Dr. Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders. The proceeds from Meghan’s work on this film will go directly to the charity.

Disneynature’s Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman will also premiere on the same date.
