Meghan Markle has her first post-royal job: narrating a Disney documentary about elephants.

Disney announced overnight Markle, who is married to Britain’s Prince Harry, is lending her voice to Elephant, to be released on April 3rd on the Disney+ streaming service.

It’s one of a series of animal- and nature-themed features released to mark Earth Month.

The film follows an elephant family on a 1600-kilometre journey across the Kalahari Desert.

Harry and Meghan shocked the world in January by announcing that they were quitting as senior royals, relinquishing official duties and seeking financial independence.

Since late last year, they have been based on Vancouver Island, and will officially end royal duties on March 31.
