The former Duchess of Sussex lent her voice to Disney's upcoming nature documentary Elephants. The film follows an elephant family as they make the long trek across the Kalahari Desert. Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are donating funds from the project to Elephants Without Borders. Markle has worked with the conservation group before and learned about the film through a mutual friend at the organization.
The documentary will be available to stream on Disney+ starting on April 3.
Disney shared the first look at two new documentaries coming to its streaming service.
One of the nature documentaries follows an elephant family trekking across the Kalahari Desert to make it to a lush green forest. Another is about a pod of dolphins surviving in the ocean. Meghan Markle will narrate Elephants and Natalie Portman will provide voiceover for Dolphin Reef.
Many thought Prince Harry networked to get Markle this gig, but she got it all on her own.
During The Lion King premiere, footage was released of Prince Harry and Disney CEO Bob Iger chatting about Markle's voiceover talent. But apparently, things had already been in the works. Iger clarified the subject on the Oscars 2020 red carpet. Harry had simply been informing him that Markle was providing the narration for his project.
