Meghan Markle has reportedly signed a voiceover deal with Disney.

The news comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced they would be “stepping back” from their roles as senior members of the royal family.

According to The Times [via The Mirror], the project involves Meghan doing a voiceover in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders. The organisation helps track and protect the wild animals from poaching.

She is said to have done the recording before she, Prince Harry, and their eight-month-old son Archie flew to Canada for the holidays.

The couple announced on Wednesday evening that, “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”, they were planning to start to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution.”

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” their statement said.

“It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”

The Sussexes said that the “geographic balance” would enable them to raise their son, Archie, for an “appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”
