A Meghan Markle and Prince Harry TV movie is coming and the leading roles have already been cast. The Suits actress will be played by Parisa Fitz-Henley (Jessica Jones) and her royal fiancé will be portrayed by Murray Fraser (The Loch, Victoria).
The casting directors really nailed it, especially with Markle's onscreen counterpart:
Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story will cover the couple's relationship, from the moment they were set-up by a mutual friend to their engagement in November 2017, Deadline reports. It'll also include how the pair kept their romance under wraps and dealt with "intense global media attention." The work will also touch on "Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress," according to Deadline.
There is no exact premiere date yet, but the film is expected debut this spring, possibly in time for Harry and Meghan's real-life wedding on May 19. A TV movie about Prince William and Kate Middleton's romance aired 11 days before their 2011 wedding—so perhaps we can expect Harry & Meghan to arrive in early May.
The Royals writer Scarlett Lacey and One Tree Hill producer Terrence Coli are penning the script, and British director Menhaj Huda will helm the project. Production starts this week in Los Angeles (Markle's native city) and Vancouver, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The real-life Markle is no stranger to made-for-TV films. The actress previously starred in a couple for the Hallmark Channel: When Sparks Fly (2014) and Dater's Handbook (2016).
