Harry’s job pitch for Meghan
Just three months before Meghan Markle recorded a voiceover for an upcoming Disney project, her husband, Prince Harry, may have buttonholed the head of the entertainment company at a London premiere to ask she be considered for the job.
Harry, Meghan, and Disney CEO Bob Iger were together on the red carpet for London's Lion King premiere when an onlooker was able to catch the conversation on tape.
As Meghan hugged Beyonce, who was also at the premiere, the Duke of Sussex collared the Disney chief and apparently touted his former actress wife's interest in voiceover work.
"Ah, I did not know that," Iger was taped saying. "You seem surprised," Harry responded. "She's really interested."
Iger replied, "We'd love to try. That's a great idea."

The Times of London revealed on Saturday that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with The Walt Disney Company for work on an undisclosed project.
In lieu of a direct payment - royals are barred from working for money - Disney reportedly made a donation to one of the Sussex's pet projects, Elephants Without Borders, a wildlife charity.
The resurfaced clip comes just hours before Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry gather to meet the Queen for an emergency summit at Sandringham to hammer out the details of the Sussex's future.
A Palace source confirmed to The Sun they will also discuss the "next steps" for the monarchy, with an announcement due within days.
The meeting will be the first time Harry has come face-to-face with his grandma since revealing his plan to quit frontline duties last week.
