Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has signed on to record a voiceover for an upcoming Disney project, just weeks after Prince Harry was overheard pitching her talents to Disney boss Robert Iger.

In footage which has resurfaced on Twitter this week, the royal couple can be seen at the London premiere of the Lion King with Meghan hugging superstar Beyonce, and Harry talking into Iger's ear.

He says: "You know she does voiceovers?"

Iger replies: "Oh really?" and later adds, "I did not know that."

Harry then says: "You seem surprised... but yeah, she's really interested," to which Iger replies: "Sure. We'd love to try. That's a great idea."

That was in July. The deal was announced publicly on Sunday but according to the Times of London, Meghan recorded the voiceover before the royal couple left for their six-week break to Canada to celebrate Christmas.

As royals are barred from working for money, Disney instead reportedly made a donation to the wildlife charity Elephants Without Borders.

This is Meghan's first acting role since the Suits star was forced to quit acting in 2017, in order to focus on her royal duties.
