Meghan Markle Makes Disney Debut 8 Months After Prince Harry Bidding

Meghan Markle

Makes Disney Debut

Thanks to Prince Harry!!!

3/26/2020 9:25 AM PT

Meghan Markle‘s officially back in Hollywood … she’s making her Disney debut nearly a year after Prince Harry lobbied the Mouse House’s head honcho.

Disney announced Thursday it’s releasing a new movie “narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.” Yup, that’s how Disney’s marketing Meghan. She’ll narrate “Disneynature’s Elephant.” Natalie Portman‘s also narrating “Dolphin Reef.” The films drop April 3 on Disney Plus.

Gotta give Prince Harry the assist on this one … ’cause you’ll recall there was a July 2019 video that started resurfacing in January, just days after Harry and Meghan announced the bombshell that they’re stepping down as Royals.

In the video, you can see Harry chit-chatting with the former head of Disney, Bob Iger, at the “Lion King” premiere in London. You can hear Harry say, “You know she does voice-overs?” Iger responds with surprise, “Oh really? Ah …”

You can hear Iger say he didn’t know that before Harry responds Meghan is “really interested.” Moments later, you clearly hear someone say, “We’d love to try.” Well, looks like Harry’s bidding worked.

It’s unclear how much Meghan’s getting paid for this gig. But, one thing we know … she agreed to do voice-over work for Disney in return for a donation to a charity she supports … Elephants Without Borders.

Call it a win-win.
