Prince Harry Told Bob Iger Markle Does Voiceovers at Lion King Premiere
Unless you’ve been under a rock the last 24 hours, you’re likely aware that Meghan Markle has signed a deal with Disney to do voiceover work. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprise the world when they announced they would be leaving the Royal Family.
What many people don’t know is the Disney deal might have had its origins at The Lion King European premiere.
“You Do Know She Does Voiceovers?”
During the red carpet of The Lion King premiere, Prince Harry was chatting with Bob Iger and his wife Willow Bay. Meghan Markle was next to them conversing with Beyone and Jay-Z.
During the conversation (as you’ll see in the video below), Prince Harry says to Bob Iger,”You do know she does voiceovers?”
Appearing somewhat surprised, Iger replies “oh, I did not know that.” Prince Harry then said “you seem surprised, she’s really interested”.
It appears Iger then said, “We’d love to try. That’s a great idea.”

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

As MickeyBlog reported earlier today, “The voice over was in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Boarders which is an organization dedicated to protecting elephants from poaching and conserving wildlife.”
