Meghan Markle Signs Voiceover Deal With Disney
Meghan Markle has been in the news quite often over the last week as her and Prince Harry are stepping away from their royal titles. Now, it sounds like Markle has found her next career move post royalty.
According to The Times, Markle has signed a deal with Disney to benefit a wildlife charity. The deal will involve Markle doing voiceover work and in return will receive donations for Elephants Without Borders, an organisation that helps to track and protect the animals from poaching.
The collaboration points to the couple’s desire to use their celebrity status to further their favorite charities, though some critics see the move to partner with a media company as a blemish on the royal family’s image.
Meghan has reportedly already completed the voice-over work prior to the couple’s Christmas holiday in Canada where they spent time with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.
This wouldn’t be the first time Harry and Meghan have partnered with Disney. In July, the couple attended the premiere of the Disney film The Lion King. The premiere was held in support of African Parks, an organization Prince Harry supports. And following the birth of their son Archie, Disney presented the couple with a special cartoon featuring Winnie-the-Pooh to celebrate the happy occasion.
It is unclear if the voiceover work is for a series or a film, our best guess is the voiceover work is for an upcoming docuseries headed to Disney+ about wildlife.
