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.”

"Elephant," narrated by Duchess Meghan, hits Disney+ on April 3.

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.

“I did not know that,” Iger replied. “Sure, we’d love to try.”


Harry and Meghan attended the premiere of “The Lion King” to represent the Royal Foundation, which partnered with Disney for Protect the Pride, a global conservation campaign working to preserve Africa’s dwindling lion population. The couple also met with representatives from environmental and conservation organizations after watching the film.

Prince Harry spent three months working on wildlife and community projects in Africa in 2015, and he and Meghan returned to visit several African countries last fall, where they met with community members around the continent working to fix issues of global warming, poverty, gender-based violence and access to education.

In a farewell speech at the conclusion of their trip in October, Harry referred to Africa as his “second home” and explained that part of his love for the continent stemmed from the welcome he received on his first trip in 1997 following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

“Despite extreme hardship and ongoing challenges on so many levels, people are generous, they are strong, humble and incredibly optimistic,” he said. “I have seen strength, resilience, a sense of hope and empathy that I can only aspire to replicate. Ever since I came to this continent as a young boy, trying to cope with something I can never possibly describe, Africa has held me in an embrace that I will never forget and I feel incredibly fortunate for that.”

He added: “And as I raise my own son, I want to make sure that what I’ve learned here – the value of the natural world, the value of community and friendship – is something that I can pass on to him.”
