As the world is still in utter shock of Harry and Meghan's plans to step back from their royal roles and become financially independent, news also broke that Markle had signed a voice-over deal with Disney.
With the stipulation being that they donate her 'pay' to a charity of her choosing.
Very few details have surfaced so far, but the UK Times did report that her first voice-over project was recorded before Christmas 2019.
As far as where she's sending the donation, the Duchess of Sussex has decided to donate her earnings to Elephants Without Borders.
The Duke of Sussex has spent the last 22 years visiting Africa. He's dedicated his time learning from other researchers, guides, and veterinarians who are experts in their field.
And they've helped mold his understanding of the environmental challenges at hand. So it's no surprise really that EWB is the charity Markle chose. In 2017, they traveled to Botswana together.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting 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. 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. This geographic balance 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. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
The fact that the voice-over that has already been recorded by Markle suggests that it was probably pretty short, maybe even perhaps some kind of PSA or infomercial.
With that, Meghan Markle will be starring in an animated musical biography as herself. Prince Henry will be played by Rupert Grint, and Nicole Byer will star as the Queen's corgi.
If you'd like to know more about the royal couples intentions moving forward, many questions can be answered via their website.
Remember that even if we don't agree with other's choices, it is healthy to empower them on their journey, as it is theirs alone and not for us to understand. Hats off to Harry and Meghan as they embark the next stage of their lives! I can't wait to see where they'll be in the next decade!
