The Lion King appears to be more than just a film for the royal couple. The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, “a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa,” wrote sussexroyal, Harry and Meghan’s official Instagram account.

“As part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment and community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn.”
