Meghan, Duchess of Sussex gives interview to Good Morning America to talk about Elephant movie
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, says she hopes her elephant film project will inspire people to take care of each other, in her first interview to be aired since quitting royal duties.
Meghan’s pre-recorded interview about Elephant, the Disneynature documentary she narrated, appeared on Good Morning America on Monday.

“I hope that when people see this film, they realise how connected we all are, and if we had more of an awareness about the obstacles they are facing, I think we’d take care of each other, animals and this planet in a very different way,” the former Suits actor said.
“That’s why it’s really important for me to be able to help tell that story.”
Her interview was screened on the same day the Sussexes declared they were no longer co-operating with the British tabloid press after watching people’s lives “pulled apart” because “salacious gossip boosts advertising revenue”.
It also came as court documents were released relating to Meghan’s privacy claim against Associated Newspapers.
The legal papers revealed in the run up to the royal wedding Meghan and Prince Harry warned Meghan’s father Thomas Markle that contacting the press would backfire, and offered to help him.
Good Morning Australia said the Duchess recorded the Disney interview last year while working on the film project.
Elephant — about a family of elephants and their journey across Africa — is Meghan’s first post-royal project.
Meghan’s fee for Elephant was said to be a donation from Disney+ to the Elephants Without Borders conservation charity.
