Just days after she and Prince Harry announced they were taking a "step back" from their royal duties, it was reported that Meghan Markle has already returned to her career in showbiz--sort of. The Daily Mail reported Friday that the retired actress has signed a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders, a group dedicated to protecting wildlife from poaching and other threats. That deal was reportedly signed before the couple's bombshell announcement this past Wednesday. Meanwhile, People reports that a July 2019 video has resurfaced in which Harry seems to be promoting his wife's voiceover talents to Disney CEO Bob Iger at the London premiere of The Lion King. “You know she does voiceovers...Did you know that? You seem surprised," Harry says to Iger, who replies in part, "Sure. We’d love to try.”
