Meghan Markle Has Reportedly Inked A Voiceover Deal With Disney

Meghan Markle is reportedly stepping back into the acting world for the first time since becoming a royal.

According to UK newspaper The Times, The Duchess of Sussex is set to voice a project for Disney -- and it's all for a good cause.

Instead of pocketing any cash for the deal, Markle will be donating her fee towards a wildlife charity, Elephants Without Borders.

The Botswana-based organisation works to conserve elephant habitats, rescue orphaned elephants, conduct vital research about elephant populations and provide educational resources to students.

In 2019, Markle's husband Prince Harry worked with the charity for their 'Foster A Forest' initiative, with the Duke of Sussex helping to plant trees along the Chobe River in Botswana.

The unnamed Disney project would be Markle's first foray into acting since Season 7 of 'Suits' which aired in 2018.

The actor announced she was leaving the show shortly after her engagement to Prince Harry, after seven years playing paralegal (and later, attorney), Rachel Zane.

The news has come to light just days after Harry and Meghan announced they would be stepping back from their positions as 'senior royals' -- a move that reportedly blindsided the palace.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left millions reeling after announcing they would take a step back from royal life and begin living periodically in North America.

“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," the couple wrote in a statement posted to the Sussex Royal social media pages.

"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," they added, explaining they plan to split their time between the UK and North America.

Shortly after the statement was posted, the Palace released a short release of their own, writing that, "these are complicated issues that will take time to work through".

The Queen will now host crisis talks with Prince Harry and senior royals on Monday at her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, according to AP.
