Meghan Markle has landed her first job - a role in a Disney film - as she steps back from royal life.

It read: "Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus."

One person replied: "Go Queen Meghan," and another wrote: "I can't wait!"

A third added: "I really can't wait."

It comes after it was reported that Meghan had landed a role with Disney earlier this year.

The former actress apparently agreed to the role in return for a donation to an elephant charity.

It was believed that Meghan recorded her voiceover in November last year, before she and Harry took a six-week break in Canada with son Archie.

Footage showed Harry discussing voiceover work with a Disney boss at the Lion King premiere last year.

But this isn't the only job Meghan has been offered since the royal couple announced plans to step back from their senior royal roles.

The Simpsons has offered the Duchess some voiceover work as well.

Speaking to The Radio Times, The Simpsons producer Al Jean said: "We've talked about Harry and Meghan.

"I hear she wants to do voiceover work, so if they're reading this, give us a call."

Why are Meghan and Harry stepping down from royal life?

Harry and Meghan explained they want to live an independent live and earn their own money.

They carried out their final royal engagements this month and will step down officially on March 31.

But with the aim to become financially independent, it seems Meghan and Harry will have to start looking for work opportunities.

Recent reports claimed Meghan has been trying to land a role as a superhero in a Hollywood blockbuster movie.

A source told the Mail On Sunday that Meghan's agent Nick Collins has been touting for work for the Duchess around Hollywood.
