Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has been tapped to narrate the upcoming Disney+ documentary, Elephant.
According to Deadline, the doc, produced by Disneynature, will premiere on the digital platform on April 3.
Elephant follows African elephant Shani and her son Jomo and their herd as they travel hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert. Led by their 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.
Markle has been adjusting to life in Canada after she and her husband Prince Harry announced in February that they would be relinquishing their duties as senior members of the royal family.
“Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it.”
“It was a difficult decision for Harry and Meghan. They love their family, but given the relentless onslaught by the media, they did what they thought was right for their family and son,” the source explained to the outlet. However, “William was unhappy that things weren’t handled privately.”
The U.K. media has been relentless in their efforts to villainize Markle, bashing her for everything from touching her pregnant belly too much to her strained relationship with her father. Fortunately, husband Prince Harry is deeply protective of his wife and is prepared to walk away from it all.
Markle will officially be free of her duties on March 31.
