The actress turned Duchess left royal life officially on the 31 March. And the documentary arrived on the streaming service on the 3rd of April.
The filmmakers divulged some sweet secrets about Meghan Markle’s process as she recorded the voice over.
Meghan met the filmmakers, Mark Linfield and Vanessa Berlowitz, over lunch during a trip to Botswana.
Speaking to People magazine, they revealed that they showed her some of the scenes they had already shot using voiceover clips from her United Nations women’s speeches.
Clearly it struck a chord, as Meghan was ‘absolutely intrigued by the female empowerment side’ of elephant herds. With Vanessa saying she felt like Meghan related to the mother elephant navigating the world with a young son.
Meghan became a mother for the first time last year, she welcomed her own son, Archie in May of 2019.
The Duchess recorded her narration at London’s Pinewood Studios and even brought her husband, Prince Harry, along for moral support.
The filmmakers added that Meghan did some improvising with the script for an ‘organic’ approach.
Both Meghan and Harry have a strong connection to elephants and Botswana. They visited the country in 2017 to help Dr Mike Chase from Elephants Without Borders to fit tracking devices on the animals.
In fact, Meghan actually donated her earnings from the voiceover work to the charity.
