It’s a green light for a Lifetime movie about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
according to Deadline, The film titled Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story will chronicle the British Prince and American Actress’ courtship and relationship.
It has been reported that Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley spoke of the film at the Television Critics Association event Sunday. The film will most likely give a timeline of the couple’s relationship from the very beginning when they were first linked romantically, to the most recent developments in their relationship which earned them global media attention.
While the network has yet to confirm a premiere date for the TV movie or who will portray the duo, EW reports that casting is underway.
This won’t be the first time the network is creating a movie based on a royal romance. Lifetime’s previous TV movie featured the love story of Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William and Kate Middleton. Their film aired 11 days before they said their ‘I dos’ in 2011 so it’s safe to say that a pre-wedding release date is most likely.
Deadline also reported that Menhaj Huda will direct the movie and that Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss will executive produce the film.
Harry and Meghan are scheduled to tie the knot May 19, 2018 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
