Over the weekend, Good Morning America advertised the appearance, noting that Markle will share an exclusive first look at her the Disney documentary she narrated, Disneynature’s Elephant.
Narrating the documentary, which follows a herd of elephants as they cross 1,000 miles of the Kalahari Desert in search of water, marks Markle’s first gig announced since leaving the U.K. “She was absolutely intrigued by the elephants and transfixed, especially by the female empowerment side,” filmmaker Vanessa Berlowitz told People on April 2. “It really is all about female leadership. It’s a different form of power—it’s about consensual leadership. It’s also very inclusive, as well—very contemporary.” Prince Harry even made an appearance in the recording studio.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Markle and Prince Harry, who recently made the move to Los Angeles, have been volunteering with Project Angel Food, a Los Angeles organization that prepares and delivers healthy meals to those affected by COVID-19 and other serious ailments. Entertainment Tonight reports that the couple first volunteered on Easter Sunday and then delivered another 20 meals on Wednesday, April 15.
“They told us they heard our drivers were overloaded and wanted to volunteer to lighten the drivers’ workload,” Project Angel Food’s executive director Richard Ayoub said. The couple reportedly followed all social distancing guidelines, staying six feet away from others and wore masks and gloves. “I am blown away that they chose us. They care about our vulnerable population,” Ayoub said. “Our clients are most at risk to contract the coronavirus, having compromised immune systems including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and most are over the age of 60.”
No word yet on whether or not Markle will open up about her family’s choice to step back from life as senior royals, but we’ll definitely be tuning in to Good Morning America on Monday, April 20 at 7 a.m. EST.
