Critics Calling Meghan Markle’s Film ‘Elephant’ Cheesy
Since their royal exit, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept a low profile. However, we recently found out that Meghan Markle’s film, Elephant, will release in April. Now the critics have called her narration as cheesy.
Since they left their royal titles, Harry and Meghan are facing backlash
When they announced that they will be stepping back as senior royal members, everyone thought that Meghan influenced Harry to make the decision. However, they released a mutual statement to announce the news. It was also said that they had not consulted the other members of the royal family. However, this decision led to huge criticism on Meghan and internet trolls coined the term Megxit. The main reason behind this was the scrutiny and unfair behavior of media with Meghan Markle.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Meghan Markle’s film, Elephant is about an elephant family from Kalahari Desert
Directed by Mark Linfield and Vanessa Berlowitz, this nature documentary is released under the Disneynature label. The film revolves around an African elephant, Shani and his son, Jomo. The documentary covers their travel across the Kalahari Desert led by their matriarch, Gaia, and what issues they have to face during it. Alongside Dolphin Reef, Meghan Markle’s film, Elephant will release on 3rd April on Disney Plus.
While the film has received good ratings, Meghan Markle’s narration has been slammed by critics
According to the film critics, Meghan Markle’s film, Elephant, has cheesy and shallow narration. They have stated that the Duchess’ narration seems overdramatized and over-eager to please. Ed Potton from Times of London says:
“The silken tones that Meghan employed on the legal series ‘Suits’ and which were often muzzled during her time as a full-time royal are now given free rein. And yes, she certainly has an actor’s way with a phrase and a likable sense of mischief. “Oh! Who did that?” she coos in mock disgust when one of the elephant calves breaks wind. The sense of performance, though, often feels over-egged. Even the underwhelming moment in which the elephants rip some bark off a tree is presented like the announcement of the winner for best picture.”
Although we hear and value the critics’ views, we will have to see the film ourselves to make judgments about it.
