Meghan Markle might be teaming up with Disney for a good cause.
According to The Times, the Duchess of Sussex has reportedly inked a deal for a voice-over with the media company in exchange for a donation to a wildlife charity of her choice. The report indicates the charity could be Elephants Without Borders, an organization which supports wildlife conservation. It’s said the partnership is part of the pair’s plan to use their celebrity to support their favorite charities.
This all comes just days after she and husband Prince Harry announced their decision to step down as senior members of the British royal family.
"We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the married couple revealed in a joint statement via Instagram. “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. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment."
This adjustment indicates the 38-year-old actress and 35-year-old Duke of Sussex will continue to “honour [their] duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages,” and that by dividing their time between the United Kingdom and North America “will enable us to raise our son with 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.”
