Meghan Markle may have found a new way to spend her time now that she and husband Prince Harry will be spending more time away from the Royal Palace.
Reports are indicating that the Suits actor has signed a deal with Disney to perform voiceover work to benefit the charity Elephants Without Borders to help protect elephants from poaching. Megan and Harry have worked with this charity before. At this point in time, there is no specifically named project attached to this deal.
Becoming Financially Independent
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan shocked the world with their recent announcement that the couple intends to step down as "senior members" of the royal family.
Harry and Meghan took to Instagram to explain their situation, saying they wanted to work to become financially independent as they split their time between the UK and North America. The couple expressed a desire to give their infant son, Archie, normal life while still observing the royal family that he was born into.
Some on social media have blamed Duchess Meghan for her and her husband's departure from the Royal Palace. Accusations claim the actor is seeking more fame and has forced Harry into this position.
Despite these rumors, there is no evidence that Meghan's new deal with the House of Mouse has anything to do with her own wallet or with her family's exit from their royal roles. Reports say this voiceover deal was made before the couple's now-infamous announcement was made.
A Supportive Husband
Along with the reports of Duchess Meghan's new voiceover deal, a video spread that shows Prince Harry possibly clinching the job for his wife in a meeting with Disney Chief Executive Officer, Bob Iger.
In the video, Prince Harry tells Iger that Meghan does voiceover work and comments on Iger's apparent surprise at learning this news. Iger tells Harry that he is very interested in working with Meghan while his wife appears to be busy in her own conversation chatting with Beyonce.
A More Likely Story
Adding to the rumors and reports surrounding the cause of Harry and Meghan's departure are comparisons between the ways Meghan and Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton, have both been treated by the British press.
Images of headlines contrasting stories about the two women have been published showing how much harassment Meghan has received by the media. Videos have previously circulated showing Meghan opening up about her mental health and of Harry admonishing the British press for their treatment of his wife.
