A few months ago, we reported on the fact that Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, had signed a voiceover deal with Disney with the agreement that Disney donate to a wildlife charity of Meghan's choosing.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stepped down as senior members of the royal family but their hearts still remain in the United Kingdom.

While Meghan's marriage to Trevor ended in divorce in 2013, she became a royal when she married Prince Harry in 2018.

Until now, there was little confirmation about what that could look like. Video footage from the premiere showed Harry and Bob chatting, with Harry telling the former Disney CEO about Meghan's interest in voiceover work.

In recognition of Elephant, Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are supporting Elephants Without Borders, an organization working in Botswana to ensure people and elephants thrive.

In Elephants, Meghan will narrate an elephant family's 1,000 mile journey through the African desert on "an adventure that will change their lives".

Quarantine with quokkas: Australian cruise passengers moved to Rottnest
The state's chief health officer said NSW Health is expecting to see an increase in people testing positive to COVID-19. The holiday island of Rottnest has been emptied to create a quarantine centre for Australian cruise passengers.

Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week (he is the first member of the British royal family to contract the virus), and called his sons to inform them of the diagnosis.

The source said Meghan's time in Canada "has given her the chance to reset".

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain March 7, 2020.

"She is upbeat" said the source about the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla who is also self-isolating. The challenges they face include brutal heat, dwindling resources and threats from predators.

"They had to get out but this move was planned for some time".

Harry and Meghan are understood to be taking precautions since their return to Canada after their final engagements in the United Kingdom.
