If the whirlwind royal romance between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sounds like a movie, you wouldn't be wrong. Lifetime just announced their plans to create a TV movie about the couple, titled—wait for it—Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story. And it's still casting!
If it's your dream to be Megan Markle, pet the Queen's corgis, and wear a three-stone engagement ring, now's your chance to do all that and kiss Prince Harry—well, at least some guy who looks like Prince Harry. Deadline, which broke the news that Lifetime is producing the film, reports that the network is still in the process of casting the movie.
We're just guessing that you'll probably have to actually resemble the future duchess to snag the role—NBD, though. That's just semantics, right?
Anyway, according to Deadline, the plot will chronicle the relationship between the Prince and the American actress, beginning from the moment the pair first met, through their intercontinental courtship that took them all the way to romantic Botswana, to the global media frenzy that is the royal engagement. We can't wait!
The Royals's Menhaj Huda has been tapped to direct, while Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss will be executive producers of the TV movie.
Lifetime has yet to release a premiere date for the film, but the network better get a move on if they want to release the flick before Meghan and Harry's royal wedding date. May 19 is only four months away!
Luckily, Lifetime has managed to make a previous big-day deadline. Back in 2011, when Kate Middleton and Prince William were preparing for their nuptials, the cable network successfully cranked out a film centering on their royal romance, starring Camilla Luddington as the Duchess of Cambridge and Nico Evers-Swindell as the Duke of Cambridge.
William & Kate: The Movie aired just 11 days before the film's real-life protagonists said I do at Westminster Abbey.
