Meghan Markle is set to narrate a brand new documentary produced by Disney for Disney+.

The new streaming service, which launched in Ireland this week, wrote in a tweet:

“Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.”

Meghan and Harry recently quit their roles as senior royals.

Before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was well-known for her role as Rachel Zane in the hit series Suits.

A trailer for the new documentary described it as “one family’s extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives”.

The trailer also features snippets from another upcoming documentary exclusive to Disney+, Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman.

Both films are set to arrive on Disney+ on Friday, April 3.

Last year, Meghan and Harry attended the premiere of The Lion King. Footage published by The Mail on Sunday shows Meghan and Harry chatting to the film’s director, Jon Favreau as well as Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z.

Harry says, “Next time, if anyone needs any extra voiceover work, we can make ourselves available.”

Meghan adds, “That’s really why we’re here – to pitch.”

Harry was also filmed telling executive chairman of the Walt Disney Company, Robert Iger, “You do know she does voiceovers?” He then added, “She’s really interested.”

The Times previously reported that Meghan had agreed to a voiceover deal with Disney, who will now make a donation to Elephants Without Borders, a wildlife charity supported by Harry.

The arrival of Disney+ in Ireland also sees a wide range of National Geographic content becoming available to Irish viewers, as well as titles from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.
