Back in 2011, Lifetime aired the TV movie, William & Kate: The Movie, just 11 days before their Royal wedding day.
Now with the future King’s brother betrothed to American actress Meghan, the network are setting their sights on their romance.
Titled, Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story, this TV movie will cover how the pair became a couple, up until their engagement in November last year.
According to Deadline: “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.”
Harry & Meghan is in the casting stages and with their wedding day set for May 19, the film is expected to air in the early days of that month.
The Royals’ Menhaj Huda is directing the film, with Flowers In The Attic’s Meredith Finn and Michele Weiss on executive producing duties.
William & Kate: The Movie was met with negative reviews, which might cause concern for the upcoming movie.
The Guardian called it: “Awful, toe-curlingly, teeth-furringly, pillow-bitingly ghastly.”
The Mirror said: “[It] contains moments so royally ridiculous they could only have occurred in the mind of third-rate script writer.”
William & Kate: The Movie was broadcast on Channel 5 in the UK, five days before the wedding.
A UK distributor for Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story is yet to be announced.
