It drops at the beginning of April and People reports the documentary is in partnership with Elephants Without Borders – a conservation project that Meghan and Prince Harry have worked closely with in the past.



In 2017, during their trip to Botswana, Meghan and Harry assisted Dr Mike Chase, who works on the project, in his conservation efforts.

Meghan and Harry had shared pictures from their trip to Instagram to celebrate World Elephant Day in August, with one snap showing Harry approaching an elephant with a navigation collar.

The post explained that such collars help the team at Elephants Without Borders to track and protect the elephants and follow their migratory patterns.

In January, it was revealed that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with Disney in return for a donation towards the conservation charity.

Her addition came after Harry was seen joking with Disney’s CEO Bob Igor at the premiere of 2019 live action remake The Lion King, where he was seen pitching Meghan’s voiceover talents.

It’s believed Meghan then completed the recording for the documentary, before she took a six-week break in Canada with Harry and their son Archie over Christmas.
