Last week, the world was rocked by the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
Since their shock announcement there’s been an endless stream of rumours and speculation as to how the rest of the Royal family are dealing with the situation and what caused the decision in the first place.

Fast-forward to today and it looks like Prince Harry’s Royal escape plan has been in the works for some time.
According to TMZ, video has resurfaced from the Lion King premiere in London back in July 2019 that shows Harry chatting to Disney’s Bob Iger and pitching Meghan’s voice-over talents to the CEO.
“You know she does voice-overs?” Harry is seen asking Iger. “Oh really? Ah…” he responds. Later, Harry says Meghan is “really interested” and someone says “we’d really love to try.”
While there’s no confirmation that Harry was hooking Meghan up with a job at the Lion King premiere, it came out today that the Duchess has reportedly signed a deal with Disney to do voice-over in return for a donation to Elephants Without Borders.
Will Meghan’s upcoming charity gig for Disney eventually turn into a new job?
Either way, Prince Harry has gone completely rogue and is clearly on a mission to establish a life for him and his family outside of the walls of Buckingham Palace.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Royal family are in crisis mode and the Queen has even called a summit to decide the future of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Even Harry’s brother Prince William has weighed in on the saga, reportedly telling a friend “I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that anymore; we’re separate entities.”
It could very well be the beginning of the end for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s involvement in the Royal family – but at least there’s some potentially lucrative job opportunities on the horizon.
