The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly signed a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders, according to The Times.
The voiceover was recorded ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-week break in Canada for the holidays and before they announced they were stepping back from their senior royal roles. No other details are known at this time.
Elephants Without Borders is a non-profit organisation in Botswana that helps to track and protect elephants from poaching in Botswana and the surrounding countries.
This isn’t the first relationship the Royal Family has had with Disney as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Lion King premiere in London to benefit one of Harry’s conservation efforts. Disney made a donation to this initiative.
The British royals aren’t the only ones who have had agreements with Disney. The late King of Morocco, King Hassan II, had the idea to place the Moroccan pavilion in Disney World Epcot and helped to design it. More information on that can be read here.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced earlier this week that they want to step away from their senior royal roles, become more financially independent, and split their time between the UK and North America. The announcement sent shockwaves throughout Britain, and discussions are ongoing between members of the Royal Family (including representatives of The Queen, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex) to find a happy resolution. The Queen has said that the decision should be made within days.
