Meghan Markle’s first job post-Megxit Independent or not quite so? 27. März 2020 DON'T KEEP THIS TO YOURSELF So now it’s official, Meghan Markle landed her first job after Megixt. At the end of March, Prince Harry and his wife begin their post-senior royal lives. And the Duchess of Sussex has already rolled up her sleeves and got busy. In fact, she recorded the voice over for a Disney movie that will be released on 3rd April. In Elephants, she narrates the epic journey of a brave little elephant, Jomo, his mother, Shani, and their herd across the Kalahari Desert. The plot The press release of the documentary states that „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.” View this post on Instagram Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus. A post shared by Disney (@disney) on Mar 26, 2020 at 8:45am PDT The charity Disney will donate money from the film to the organization Elephant Without Borders. So, by lending her voice to Elephants, this will be the second time Meghan Markle has helped the charitable organization. Back in 2017, Harry and Meghan went to Botswana. There, they met and helped Dr Mike Chase, of the wildlife charity Elephant Without Borders. Harry and Meghan have the conservation efforts in Africa and the world close to their hearts. When they attended the premiere of The Lion King, last summer, they announced on Instagram Disney’s donation to their charity.

In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

The prince was filmed talking to Iger about Meghan’s voice over skills and her interest in working with Disney. Apparently, his pitch worked wonders. Meghan Markle did get the job. But that’s not all. Disney will release the film together with a second one about dolphins, narrated by nobody other than Oscar-winning Natalie Portman. For Meghan at least, Megixt was quite a good career move, wasn’t it? View this post on Instagram Two new movies, two unforgettable journeys. Start streaming Disneynature’s Elephant, narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, and Disneynature’s Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman, on April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.

That is, for someone wanting to be independent, using the title of Duchess, granted for marrying the British prince, to promote a movie seems a bit odd. Wouldn’t it be better to keep using her maiden name for her professional career, as many women do?
