Meghan Markle will narrate a new Disney documentary, in what will be her first high-profile post-royal job.

Set to hit screens at the start of next month, Elephant will air on Disney+ and follows one herd's 'extraordinary 1,000 mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives'.

The exciting news was announced on Disneynature's official Twitter account.

Sharing the poster for the new doc, a spokesperson said: "Disneynature's Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming 3 April, only on #DisneyPlus."

But while a trailer for the film has been released, sadly it doesn't include Meg's dulcet tones.

It is one of two nature documentaries being released in quick succession, with fellow Hollywood star Natalie Portman narrating Dolphin Reef - also set to land on 3 April.

After months of watching other countries benefit from the plethora of TV shows and movies on offer, this week we in the UK finally got the chance to tuck into Disney+.

So what do they have to keep us entertained through the next few weeks (and months) of self-isolation?

Firstly, there's The Mandalorian. It's an absolute must for all fans of the Star Wars franchise. Sure, loads of people 'somehow' managed to get hold of it when it aired on the US version of Disney+ last year, but for those who aren't as 'savvy', now is the time.

Disney+ has finally launched in the UK.

On top of that, there's pretty much every single Disney movie that you could think of - including the new live-action Lady and the Tramp - and a whole host of spin-offs featuring, for example, Forky, the vastly popular character from Toy Story 4.

And for in a slight change of pace, how about a science programme presented by none other than Jeff Goldblum?

Well, you're in luck because the Jurassic Park star heads up The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

To top it all off you can also access the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe quicker than Thanos can snap his fingers, while the Pixar collection is also there, as is National Geographic content.
