Disney on Thursday announced that Meghan Markle will narrate a new nature documentary, Elephant, her first public endeavor since stepping back from the British royal family. The documentary "follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd make an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert," Disney said. A trailer for Elephant describes it as narrated by "Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex," opting not to use the HRH royal title. Elephant will be hitting Disney just a few days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's step back as senior members of the royal family is made official on March 31, though they've already finished their last royal duties. Elephant will stream on Disney+ on April 3.
