Duchess Meghan is returning to the entertainment world.
Days after she and Prince Harry are scheduled to officially step back as senior members of the royal family, the former actress’ voice will appear as the narrator on the Disneynature film “Elephant,” marking her return to Hollywood.
The feature-length film will premiere April 3 on Disney+ along with “Dolphin Reef,” a previously announced Disneynature film narrated by Natalie Portman.
“Elephant,” directed by Mark Linfield and co-directed by Vanessa Berlowitz and Alastair Fothergill, follows a mother-son African elephant duo “as their herd make an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert,” according to a news release. “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 former Meghan Markle was best known for her acting role as Rachel Zane on USA’s legal drama “Suits” from 2011 to 2018.
Rumors circulated that Meghan had been tapped to lend her voice to a Disney project after she and Harry stopped by the red carpet last July for the 2019 “Lion King” remake. In a video clip released by TMZ from the film’s European premiere, Harry appeared to tell Disney CEO Bob Iger “she does voiceovers,” while pointing to his wife.
