Prince Harry might have played a major role in Meghan Markle’s reported voice-over deal with Disney as their adventure outside the Royal Family begins.
According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex has reportedly signed a deal with Disney on an “unspecified project in return for a donation to an elephant charity,” and Prince Harry seems to have played a major role in the deal.
In a resurfaced video from the UK Lion King premiere in July of last year Prince Harry was spotted putting his wife on the spot as he was seen pitching Meghan Markle’s voiceover experience to Disney CEO.

According to reports, the deal was “signed before the recent uproar over Markle and husband Prince Harry’s plans to disengage from the Royal Family and pursue other opportunities.”
Despite the timing, the former Suits actress’s latest partnership might be a glimpse into what she and Prince Harry have in the works now that they’ll be spending less time with the Royal Family and dividing their time between North America and the U.K.
