Prince William Is Following in Meghan Markle's Footsteps in One Very Surprising Way

Prince William is following in the footsteps of his sister-in-law Meghan Markle. The Duke of Cambridge is narrating a new short film about something very close to his heart, wildlife conservation.

On Wednesday, the official Kensington Royal Instagram shared a short United for Wildlife film in which William is the narrator and calls upon international organizations to get involved in conservation. Spearheaded by The Duke Of Cambridge and The Royal Foundation, the organization is fighting to save endangered species like elephants, rhinos, tigers and more, so they can continue to live on for future generations to come.

“Right now, there is a real chance to ensure that the urgent steps that the world must take to prevent future zoonotic disease pandemics are designed in a way that also helps to eradicate the illegal wildlife trade,” he says in part of the clip. “This will require concerted effort and teamwork from international organizations, governments, law enforcement, the NGO community and the private sector.”

The 38-year-old’s small voiceover role comes months after the release of the Duchess of Sussex’s Disneynature documentaryElephant, which she narrated with a little help from Prince Harry. The film’s debut came right on the heels of Meghan and Harry’s announcement about stepping back as senior members of the royal family. 

William isn’t the only member of the family taking a page out of Markle’s narrating book—his wife, Kate Middleton, also recently lent her voice to a project, a short film called Wimbledon Recreated, where she spoke directly to fellow tennis fans and assured them that the eventual return of the championship (which has been canceled due to the pandemic) will be "worth the wait.”

What are the chances we can get the whole Windsor gang in on a film together? Hey, we can dream.
