Unearthed footage appears to show the exact moment Prince Harry spoke with Disney CEO Bob Iger to get wife Meghan voiceover work with the global entertainment giant.
It was reported last week by The Times that Meghan Markle signed a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to an elephant charity.
The charity in question is conservationist group Elephants Without Borders. The organization works to track and protect the animals from poaching.Following the news, Piers Morgan launched a verbal tirade on the young royals:
The publication also reports that before Christmas, certain senior members of the royal family had accused the couple of having already signed a deal with "firms including Disney".
And now, a clip has resurfaced online, showing Prince Harry speaking with Disney's CEO Bob Iger on the red carpet for London’s Lion King premiere, in what Piers Morgan later described as "hustling" to get Meghan work.
While the Duchess of Sussex greeted Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the event, her husband could be heard expressing interest in getting Meghan some voiceover work at Disney.Check the video out below:
The unearthed footage comes just hours before Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles are set to meet the Queen for an emergency summit at Sandringham to discuss the details of Harry and Meghan's departure from their positions as senior royals.
Last week, Buckingham Palace responded to the announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be stepping back from royal life with the following brief statement:
"Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work though."Meghan Markle reveals the struggles of motherhood while under intense scrutiny:
Per Vanity Fair, sources say that senior royals felt "hurt" and "devastated" by the couple’s decision to announce the news without consulting them first.
Aside from reportedly signing deals with major film studios, it is still not entirely clear how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will choose to pursue their newfound "financial independence".
