In her first job since stepping down from her position as a senior royal with her husband Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has narrated a new Disney show.
It has been announced that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has narrated Disney+'s new movie Elephant.
In a tweet, Disney+ announced the news as they wrote: “Two new movies, two 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.”

A second tweet about Elephant read: “Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.”
The film is about an elephant and his mother as they go on an “epic journey” across the Kalahari Desert.
It is believed 38 year old Meghan recorded her voiceover in the UK in autumn after seeing footage of the documentary.
