Meghan Markle Makes Rare Appearance on GMA to Talk About an Important Cause

After lending her voice to Disneynature's documentary, Elephant, Meghan Markle is talking about her experience with Good Morning America. On Monday, the Duchess of Sussex gave one of her first on-camera interviews since she and Prince Harry parted ways with the royal family in March. During the pretaped video interview, Meghan talked about how grateful she was to help bring this story to life. "I've been really lucky to be able to have hands-on experience with elephants in their natural habitat," she said. "When you spend time connecting to them in their wildlife, you understand that we have a role to play in their preservation and their safety."

She went on to say that she hopes the documentary helps people feel more connected with each other. "I hope that when people see this film, they realize how connected we all are, and if we had more of an awareness about the obstacles they are facing, we would take care of each other, this planet, and these animals in a very different way," she said.

Markle lent her voice to the project in exchange for a donation to conservation charity Elephants Without Borders, a Botswana-based organization aims to preserve the biodiversity and landscape of elephant populations in African countries. Following Meghan and Harry's royal exit, the couple, who currently resides in LA, continues to do good with their new nonprofit Archewell. Watch Meghan's short but sweet video interview above.
