In a rare television interview, former U.K Royal, The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle will discuss her work on Disney Plus documentary Elephant. She will be speaking on Good Morning America in a series of pre-recorded clips on Monday.
It’s thought that the clips were recorded during the making of the documentary last summer, and thus won’t feature any talk of the Royal Family, ‘Megxit’, or the disastrous shredding given to Elephant by critics.
The Duchess of Sussex hasn’t featured in a filmed interview since October, with the broadcast of Harry & Meghan: An African Journey which featured an interview with the British tabloids.
In the GMA interview, Ms. Markle emphasizes her gratitude at being involved in Elephant, and reflects on her time interacting with the elephants. She also reminisced on the time that she and Prince Harry had spent in Botswana together.
‘I am really grateful to have the opportunity of bringing this story of elephants to life. These creatures are so majestic and at the same time, they are so sensitive and so connected’.
The interview also features clips of Meghan playfully narrating over footage of a spontaneous elephant mud bath. Cosmopolitan revealed that Elephant director Vanessa Berlowitz said that Meghan Markle was ‘transfixed by the female empowerment side [of the elephants] … it really is all about female leadership’.
This is no surprise, as the Duchess of Sussex has been heavily involved in promoting international women’s day, calling to mind Prince Harry’s mother Princess Diana, and the regular work she did for charity.
Good Morning America also announced that Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are due to support ‘Elephants Without Borders’, an organization in Botswana (somewhere that Meghan and Harry have close ties to), working to protect elephants and people alike.
Meghan and Prince Harry infamously renounced their royal duties, inciting outrage from the British tabloids, the Queen, and the entire Royal family. The pair also came under fire when Harry was spotted propositioning everybody’s favorite guy Bob Iger about potential voice acting roles for the Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke and Duchess officially renounced their duties on March 31st, and now live separate lives to Harry’s father and grandmother, Prince Charles and the Queen, as well as other senior royals including Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
