28 Mar – Former "Suits" star Meghan Markle is making her return to showbiz via Disney – or more specifically, a Disneynature documentary entitled "Elephant".

A trailer for it was posted on Disneynature's Twitter account, in which the narrator states that it "follows one family's extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives."

Lending her voice to the documentary marks the Duchess of Sussex's first post-royal job. Both she and her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, announced their decision to step back as senior members of the British royal family earlier this year.

People reported that wildlife organisation Elephants Without Borders (EWB) will benefit from the documentary. The royal couple have worked with EWB before back in 2017, when they travelled to Botswana to help place trackers on elephants to protect them from poachers.

"Elephant" is set to begin streaming on Disney+ this 3 April, along with another documentary, "Dolphin Reef". The latter is narrated by fellow actress Natalie Portman.
