AceShowbiz - Lifetime has unveiled the first trailer for "Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace". Arriving on Wednesday, June 23, the new video offers the first glimpses at the upcoming movie that chronicles Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's exit from British royal family in 2020.
In the short clip which was shared in the official Instagram account of Lifetime, Prince Harry (Jordan Dean) is seen worrying about his wife Meghan (Sydney Morton) who experiences mistreatment in the palace. "I see you literally being hounded to death, and I'm powerless to stop it," Harry, who wakes up in a cold sweat, tells the Duchess of Sussex.
"I am the person who is strong and gets things right," Meghan assures her husband. The couple then declares that they can't lose each other. The upcoming TV will cover Meghan and Harry's tumultous journey as recent as their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey during which the pair got candid about their experience at the palace.
"Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace" is set to follow Harry and Meghan's struggles as well as the strain under the pressure of media scrutiny. It will also highlight Harry's trauma over the relentless attention, which is similar to the one that led to the death of his mother Princess Diana, and their decision to move to the United States.
The official synopsis of the third movie of "Harry & Meghan" trilogy read, "It will explore what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie."
Sydney and Jordan replace Parisa Fitz-Henry and Murray Fraser who played Meghan and Harry respectively in 2018's "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance". Meanwhile, 2019's "Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal" featured Tiffany Smith's Meghan and Charlie Field's Harry.
Directed by Menhaj Huda, "Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace" is set to premiere fall 2021.
