The movie "Elephant" will follow an African elephant named Shani and her son, Jomo, as they travel with their herd across the Kalahari Desert in the hopes of reaching a green paradise.

The streaming service features “an already robust collection” of animal and nature films which will be “highlighted throughout the month.”

Prince Harry and Markle announced earlier this year they would leave their royal positions and forgo their royal duties to seek financial independence. They have settled on Vancouver Island and will officially give up their duties on March 31.
