Lifetime Wants to Make a Movie About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Romance


Nothing says modern-day, fairy-tale romance quite like the love story between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Former bad boy Harry meets humanitarian and Hollywood starlet Meghan… and boom! We have a full-blown relationship. Lifetime believes such a wonderful story deserves to be recognized as a made-for-TV-movie. Deadline reports that the film will be titled Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story.

The plot will focus on the pair being introduced by a mutual friend, their first date, falling in love, their jet-setting romance, and everything else that led to the historical moment they announced their engagement. This isn’t the first time we’ve had a royal romance brought to life on the silver screen. Who can forget the magic of the TV movie William & Kate, which was released shortly before Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot in 2011?

You can expect to see the television special before Meghan and Harry’s May 19 nuptials. The project, which is directed by Menhaj Huda, is in the early stages of production, but the main characters have yet to be cast. Thankfully, we’ve already dreamed of this very moment and have selected what can only be described as very accurate options to portray Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!

Who could play Prince Harry in the movie?

Domhnall Gleeson

The 34-year-old Irish actor certainly looks the part! The critically-acclaimed star might be a little past his TV-movie days, but the magic of Meghan and Harry could lure him!
