Some clotted cream cretins must be BIG mad…
Thee Duchess of Sussex just made thee biggest power move. Disney has announced that Meghan Markle is voicing a nature documentary titled “Elephant.” This marks the Duchess’ return to the screen after last appearing on the USA’s “Suits” ahead of marrying Prince Harry. This is also Meghan’s first post-Royal gig since the announcement that she and Harry are stepping back from the royal family.
“Elephant” follows the story of an African elephant named Shani who, alongside her son, Jomo, makes a journey hundreds of miles through the Kalahari Desert. The project is expected to benefit Elephants Without Borders, a cause that’s important to both Meghan and Harry.
“Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars!” the couple previously wrote about Elephants Without Borders on Instagram.

Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant…ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB – Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . by DOS © SussexRoyal Additional photos: EWB

Prior to Megan booking the gig, a video surfaced of Harry championing Megan’s voiceover skills to Disney CEO Bob Iger at the London premiere of “The Lion King.” It looks like the good word he put in clearly.
“Elephant” joins Natalie Portman’s Dolphin Reef as part of Disneynature’s Earth Month collection. Both movies are expected to premiere April 3 on Disney+.
Shout to the Duchess of Sussex, we’re so proud of you!
