Lifetime is releasing another Prince Harry and Meghan Markle movie
28th May 2019
Lifetime announced in February it was releasing another made-for-TV film about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The first film, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, released just before the couple’s royal wedding last May, detailed the duo’s first blind date and following courtship—up until the sweet roast chicken proposal.
But the new film, Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, will pull “back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the royal family during their pivotal first years of marriage,” according to a press release obtained by People.
And according to The Cut, the film will also show how Meghan and Harry work to “blend their families and cultures,” and how their “core values are put to the test as they try to find the balance between honoring royal tradition and staying true to their beliefs.”
We can only imagine those pivotal moments will include the iconic royal wedding, Meghan’s induction into the Fab 4, several official royal engagements (and protocol-breaking A+ outfits), and a baby announcement. And considering this is Lifetime, it will likely also include highly-dramatised recreations of Meghan’s supposed “feud” with sister-in-law Kate Middleton, accusations that she “works too hard,” and her problems with immediate family members.
Unfortunately, though, the actors who portrayed the duke and duchess in the first iteration of the film, Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley, were not available to reprise their roles, according to The Wrap. Instead, Charlie Field and Tiffany Marie Smith will take on their crowns.
The film will premiere in the US on May 27 and Channel 7 is set to announce an Australian air date ASAP. Watch the full trailer below.
Seems ripe for a third feature installment…
