Meghan Markle has opened up about her first post-royal gig working with Disney!
Meghan recently provided the voiceover for a new Disneynature documentary, Elephant, which is now streaming on Disney+. She filmed opened up about the experience in an interview with Disney last summer, but it just aired on Good Morning America on Monday.
“I am really grateful to be able to bring this story of elephants to life,” Meghan said in the interview. “I’ve been really lucky to be able to have hands-on experience with elephants in their natural habitat. When you spend time connecting to them in their wildlife you understand that we have a role to play in their preservation and their safety.”
“These creatures are so majestic and at the same time, they are so sensitive and so connected,” the Duchess of Sussex continued. “You see in this film just how remarkable they are. Their memories are amazing, the close connection of the herd, the protectiveness of their young — I think they are a lot more like us than they are different.”
“I hope that when people see this film they realize how connected we all are and if we had more of an awareness about the obstacles they are facing we would take care of each other, this planet and these animals in a very different way,” she concluded.
Meghan’s work on the documentary pre-dates she and Harry’s decision to step down, however, the film was released on Disneynature just following the change in their roles. All proceeds from the film will benefit the Elephants Without Borders cause.
