It’s the circle of life.
After trading in acting for royalty, Meghan Markle is officially returning to her comfort zone.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, has already signed a deal with Disney, after announcing Wednesday that she and husband Prince Harry would “work to become financially independent” as they “step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family,” after reportedly feeling “driven out,” according to The Times Saturday.
The former “Suits” star will reportedly perform a voiceover for an unidentified Disney project that will benefit Elephants Without Borders, which aims to shield the majestic mammals for poaching.
No word on the impetus for the deal, but Walt Disney Studios’ Disneynature leg produces nature documentaries consistently narrated by A-list celebrities — including Meryl Streep for “Wings of Life” and Morgan Freeman for “L’Empereur” — and donates film proceeds to conservation and wildlife organizations.
The report notes there is not yet confirmation of a commercial deal signed by either the Duke or Duchess that will contribute to their personal finances, but alleges that their tense discussions with the royal family prior to Christmas included accusations the couple had already brokered deals “with firms including Disney.”
Last summer, the couple also endorsed Disney’s remake of “The Lion King,” the London premiere for which was held “in support of the conservation and communities work” by the Royal Foundation of the Duke.
After the couple dropped their bombshell news, Bravo network royalty Andy Cohen said that Markle had an “open invite … to join” reality series “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” — on which he serves as an executive producer.
The Walt Disney Company did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
