Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has signed a voiceover deal with Disney, with the studio making a donation to an elephant charity in return.

According to Britain's The Times newspaper, a donation will be made to Elephants Without Borders - a conservationist group that focuses on protecting elephants from poachers.

The former Suits star reportedly completed the recording before she, husband Prince Harry and baby Archie, eight months, jetted off to Canada for the festive season.

Video footage obtained by the Daily Mail shows the moment that Prince Harry spoke with Disney boss Bob Iger about his work for his wife at the royal premiere of The Lion King back in July, and is overheard telling him: "You do know she does voiceovers?"

Iger replies: "Ah, I did not know that," prompting Harry to respond: "You seem surprised. She's really interested."

The news comes after Meghan and Harry announced on Wednesday their intention to "step back" as senior royals, with the couple fully intending to "become financially independent" after streamlining their role within the institution.

They went on to launch their new sussexroyal.com website, outlining their plans for the future, with the couple intending to split its time between the U.K. and North America.

Harry, who is the son Prince Charles and his late ex-wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, is reportedly having crisis talks on Monday with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, along with his father, and his brother, Prince William, about his family's future within the monarchy.
