AceShowbiz - A Prince Harry and Meghan Markle TV movie is coming to Lifetime. The cable network announces that "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" will chronicle the romance between the British royal and the former "Suits" actress who will wed in May.
Announced on Sunday, January 14 at the Television Critics Association event, the TV movie would offer a timeline of the royal couple's relationship. It would also portray everything from the moment they met after being set up by their mutual friend to the early stages of their courtship and the global media attention surrounding their romance.
Menhaj Huda ("The Royals") has been tapped to serve behind the lens. Meanwhile, Scarlett Lacey will provide the script with Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss ("Flowers in the Attic") executive producing.
Deadline stated that the network is still casting actors who will play the 33-year-old prince and the 36-year-old beauty. "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" arrived after Lifetime aired "William & Kate", which aired eleven days prior to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.
The predecessor starred Camilla Luddington as the Duchess of Cambridge, while Nico Evers-Swindell played the Duke of Cambridge. Should Lifetime follow the pattern it did for "William & Kate", it is possible that "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story", which currently doesn't have a premiere date yet, will air in early May.
Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November last year after dating for a year. The royal couple is scheduled to tie the knot on May 19 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
