Video showing Prince Harry Asking Disney CEO About Getting Meghan Markle Voiceover Work
While attending the London premiere of The Lion King in July 2019, Harry, 35 had a brief conversation with Disney CEO Bob Iger that seemed to involve the possibility of lining up some future work for the former Suits actress, 38.
“You know she does voiceovers,” Harry can be heard saying in a video of the encounter, as Iger replies, “Oh, really?”
“Did you know that?” Harry says. “You seem surprised.”
“Sure,” Iger replies, according to the video. “We’d love to try.”
The video resurfaced over the weekend, after it was reported that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with Disney, benefitting conservation charity Elephants Without Borders. According to the U.K. outlet The Sunday Times, the deal was signed before Meghan and Harry’s bombshell announcement.
Disney has yet to comment on the report.
When Harry and Meghan announced their plans to “step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family” last Wednesday, they revealed plans to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution.”
In addition to working to “becoming financially independent,” the couple also shared their intention to “balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America.”
“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they wrote.
As conversations surrounding their bombshell announcement have continued, palace sources told PEOPLE on Saturday that Queen Elizabeth has ordered a family summit at her country home in Sandringham on Monday, in order to “talk things through.”
It is likely the Duchess of Sussex will participate via phone if it happens within the right timeframe, bearing in mind that she is currently in Vancouver Island, Canada…….read more
