Lifetime, Hallmark, and made-for-TV movies LOVE stories about regular girls falling in love with royal men. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s actual courtship is basically a Lifetime movie played out in real time, so we’re 100% not shocked that a Lifetime movie about their relationship is currently in the works at the network.

From Deadline:

The network also gave Prince William and Kate Middleton’s relationship the made-for-TV treatment and aired William & Kate: The Movie 11 days before their royal wedding in 2011.

Harry & Meghan was mentioned during Lifetime’s TCA on Sunday night where it was revealed that it’s currently in the casting phase — no word on if the network wants to premiere it before the couple’s May 19th, 2018 wedding.

In a fun twist of fate, Markle has actually appeared in two made-for-TV movies. She starred in Dater’s Handbook in 2016 and When Sparks Fly in 2014 — both were for Hallmark Channel. It’s a cute, meta, full-circle kind of moment.


To be honest, we’re very excited about this movie. TV movies and Harry and Markle’s relationship are like, two of our favorite subjects. What a weird and perfect Venn diagram.
