Lifetime has announced the premiere date for its magnificently shameless Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, as well as releasing this picture of the full cast. Is that supposed to be Prince William on the left? Oh dear, he’s going to be posing for pictures on motorcycles all over the United Kingdom for months once he sees this.
Also, is that really what the curtains look like in Buckingham Palace or wherever this is supposed to be? Getting more of a hotel ballroom vibe, to be frank. Does Kate have a spray tan? Where is Harry’s cake?
Lifetime provided a synopsis and a full cast:
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance follows the fairytale romance of Prince Harry (Murray Fraser, The Loch) and Meghan Markle (Parisa Fitz-Henley, Midnight Texas) 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: A Royal Romance also stars Steve Coulter as Prince Charles, Bonnie Soper as Diana, Burgess Abernethy as Prince William, Laura Mitchell as Kate Middleton, Maggie Sullivun as Queen Elizabeth II, Deborah Ramsay as Camilla Bowles, Preston Jakub Karwat as Prince George and Briella Wintraub as Princess Charlotte.
This magnificent piece of documentary filmmaking will premiere Sunday, May 13 at 8pm. Add it to your calendar of events for the week of the royal wedding; don’t forget to order your sheet masks and specialty snacks.
