‘Elephant’ narrated by Meghan Markle

Meghan recorded the voiceover for Disneynature‘s doc back in the fall of 2019. Filmmakers Mark and Vanessa Berlowitz sought her out for the job earlier in the summer. The former Suits star had been aware of the film and even seen some of the footage collected over the years, so the team thought she would be an excellent fit for the narration gig.

The Duchess signed the voiceover deal in return for a hefty donation to wildlife charity Elephants Without Borders.Elephant “follows one family‘s extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives.” The film is available for streaming on Disney+ now.

Earlier in the year, a clip of Harry and Meghan talking to Disney CEO Bob Iger at The Lion King live action premiere resurfaced. Harry appeared to be acting like his wife’s agent, seizing the opportunity to discuss a new role for her. “You know she does voiceovers?” he can be heard asking while gesturing towards Meghan. Well, she booked it!
