Ever since the royal engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the world has been falling in love with their every move. The couple (who had dated for a year and a half before getting in engaged) kept their relationship rather private. But after catching a glimpse of their affection, it was clear that the world wanted to learn more about their romance.
Lifetime, a television network, planned to create a movie around the couple and their romance. Fans were thrilled at the chance to learn more about the couple and their history. Since so much of their relationship was private, executives jumped at the chance to support the project.
The movie, simply titled, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, is full of romantic moments that the couple undoubtedly shared. Murray Fraser will play Prince Harry while Parisa Fitz-Henley will play Meghan Markle. There are also actors for Prince Harry’s family; Burgess Abernethy will play the part of The Duke of Cambridge and Laura Mitchell will play the beloved Duchess.
The movie is believed to start from the couple’s first date and continue well into the engagement. You’ll get a chance to see the couple during their first blind date, through their private moments, all the way up to the engagement.
Love and honesty are sure to play large themes in the film as a moment of dialogue in the trailer is Meghan urging Harry to “Tell her something real.” At which point Harry responds with an emotional and bold statement, "I don't need my life to be this perfect royal picture. I just need you."
While Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance is set to be released in May 2018. There’s no telling if it will be released prior to the wedding or not.
