Before it was confirmed, reports were abuzz that Prince Harry had mentioned it to Disney head, Bob Iger, that Meghan does voice overs. Harry told Bob at the London premiere of ‘The Lion King’ in July last year, "You know she does voice overs? She's really interested."

Iger reportedly replied, "Sure. We'd love to try."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have now stepped down from their royal duties. Currently, they are self isolating in their Vancouver Island mansion amid COVID-19.
