Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is back on our television screens.
On Monday, Good Morning America shared an interview clip from Disney of Meghan discussing her involvement in the latest Disneynature documentary, Elephant. The interview was recorded last summer, months ahead of Meghan and Prince Harry’s monumental decision to step away from life as senior working members of the royal family.
During the interview, Meghan expressed her gratitude in having been able to be a part of the documentary. She even reminisced about her and Harry’s multiple trips to Botswana, where the couple previously celebrated their first dating anniversary and volunteered with the organization Elephants Without Borders.
“I am really grateful to have the opportunity of bringing this story of elephants to life. These creatures are so majestic and at the same time, they are so sensitive and so connected,” said the duchess.
“I’ve been very lucky to be able to have hands-on experience with the elephants in their natural habitat. When you spend time connecting to them and the other wildlife, you really understand we have a role to play in their preservation and their safety,” continued Meghan. “We see in this film just how remarkable they are. Their memories are amazing. The close connection of the herd, the protectiveness of their young—I think they are a lot more like us than are different.”
Elephant is streaming now on Disney+.
