Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has her first post-royal job, as narrator in a Disney documentary about elephants.

Disney has announced Meghan is lending her voice to Elephant, to be released on April 3 on the Disney+ streaming service.

It's one of a series of animal- and nature-themed features released to mark Earth Month.

The film follows an elephant family on a 1600-kilometre journey across the Kalahari Desert.

Prince Harry and Meghan shocked the world in January by announcing they were quitting as senior royals, relinquishing official duties and seeking financial independence.

Since late last year they have been based on Vancouver Island, and will officially end royal duties on March 31.

Harry married the US actor at Windsor Castle in May 2018, in a ceremony watched by millions around the world.

The couple later said they found scrutiny by the British media - which they said tipped into harassment - intolerable.
