Meghan Markle Appears On Good Morning America To Speak About Narrating Disneynature's Elephant Documentary
Apr 20, 2020
Meghan Markle made her very first official TV appearance since she and her husband officially stepped back as Senior Royals in a segment for Good Morning America.
The segment, which aired earlier today, featured clips of Markle in a pre-recorded interview from 2019 in which she discusses the Disney biopic. Elephant, which she narrated.
Markle explained why the biopic is one close to her heart.
"I'm really grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of bringing this story of elephants to life,” she said.
“I've been very lucky to be able to have hands-on experience with elephants in their natural habitat. When you spend time connecting with them and other wildlife, you really understand we have a role to play in their preservation and their safety.”
She continued by calling the animals “majestic” and “sensitive” and spoke about their incredible memory. She also touched on how they are very close to their herd and family – something that might just make them more similar to humans than we think.
"I hope that when people see this film, they realise how connected we all are and if we had more of awareness about the obstacles we're facing, I think we'd take care of each other, this planet and animals, in a very different way,” Markle added.
Earlier in 2020, it was revealed that Meghan Markle had narrated a biopic film for Disney, which was released in early April. According to Hello, the former-Royal agreed to narrate the film in exchange for a donation to the charity Elephants Without Borders.
The recording was completed in Fall last year after she was approached by filmmakers Mark and Vanessa Berlowitz to be part of the project. Markle had reportedly been aware of the documentary for years and was thus thought to be a perfect fit for the role.
Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, along with their son, Archie have been living in Los Angeles as of recent. The couple has been helping where they can amid the Coronavirus pandemic by volunteering with Project Angel Food, a non-profit organization, as they deliver food to the less fortunate in West Hollywood.
Last week, Markle also caught up with her pals at Hubb Kitchen in London, a project she has been part of since their cookbook launch in 2017 via video chat.
