Lifetime Casts Actors as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for Its 'Royal Romance' Movie

'Victoria' actor Murray Fraser and 'Jessica Jones' actress Parisa Fitz-Henley have been tapped to portray the engaged couple in upcoming TV movie 'Harry and Meghan: The Royal Love Story'.

AceShowbiz - Lifetime has found its Harry and Meghan. Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley have been cast in the title roles for an upcoming TV movie titled "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" (also known as "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance"), which will chronicle the romance between the soon-to-be-married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Fraser has starred on 2017's miniseries "The Loch" and PBS' "Victoria". As for Fitz-Henley, she is best known for her role as Reva Connors on "Marvel's Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage". She also lands a role on NBC's 2016-2017 freshman supernatural drama series "Midnight, Texas".

According to Deadline, "Harry & Meghan" chronicles the courtship and love story between a beloved prince and his new fiancee. The film will examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan's life as a divorced American actress.

Menhaj Huda ("The Royals") has been tapped to serve behind the lens, with Scarlett Lacey on board to provide the script. Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss ("Flowers in the Attic") are set to executive produce.

"Harry & Meghan" follows Lifetime's "William & Kate", which aired eleven days prior to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011. There's no premiere date just yet for the upcoming TV movie, but it is set to debut this spring. Should Lifetime follow the pattern it did for "William & Kate", it is possible that "Harry & Meghan" will air in early May.

Harry and Meghan are set to tie the knot on May 19 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
