It’s a delicate balancing act, what we do on the WOW Report: We report on the virus, of course… We give you fun videos to watch while self-isolating… and then we try and post some run-of-the-mill pop culture stories to give you some semblance of normalcy. That’s what this story is. A nostalgic return to the days when gossip about Harry and Meghan was big news.
The news of the collaboration, which will be available to stream on 3 April on Disney+, was shared by the Disneynature social media accounts.
“Two new movies, two unforgettable journeys,” the tweet reads. “Start streaming Disneynature’s Elephant, narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, and Disneynature’s Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman, on April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.”“Elephant, narrated by Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, follows one family’s extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives,” the narrator says in the clip.
It is Meghan’s first job since stepping back from her role in the royal family.
According to People, the Disneynature documentary will benefit wildlife organisation Elephants Without Borders (EWB), a charity that both Meghan and Prince Harry have worked with before.

The duchess’s new role comes after a resurfaced video from the London premiere of The Lion King showed Prince Harry pitching Meghan’s ability to do voiceover work to former Disney CEO Bob Iger.
In the clip, Prince Harry can be heard telling Mr Iger: “You know she does voiceovers,” while pointing towards his wife.
“Oh, really?” Mr Iger responded. “I did not know that.”
“You seem surprised,” Prince Harry replied, before adding: “But yeah, she’s really interested.”
The conversation ended with Mr Iger telling him: “Sure, we’d love to try.”
That’s… actually adorable…. Harry pitching his wife to the head of Disney…
