The Duchess of Sussex is in high demand! Show bosses for The Simpsons have said they would love Meghan Markle to sign up for a voice role on the hit US cartoon – but admitted they haven't approached Prince Harry's wife with a job offer yet. Showrunner Al Jean told the Radio Times: "We've talked about Harry and Meghan. I hear she wants voiceover work. So if they're reading this, give us a call!"

Harry was overheard highlighting his wife’s interest in voiceover work at the Lion King premiere last year. The Prince could be heard telling Disney CEO, Bob Iger: "You know she does voiceovers?" while gesturing towards Meghan, who is stood next to him in conversation with Beyonce and Jay-Z. "Oh really? I did not know that," the Disney chief replies. "You seem surprised," Harry responds, before adding: "But yeah, she's really interested." The conversation concludes with Mr Iger telling Harry: "Sure, we'd love to try."
