Lifetime announced last week that there is a Meghan Markle and Prince Harry movie in the works.
According to the YBF, the network sent out a casting call describing the movie as “the story of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship & engagement.”
To play the future Princess, Lifetime is looking for a 28 to 35-year-old, “mixed ethnicity, female” who “must bear a strong resemblance to Meghan,” and for Harry the network is looking for a 25 to 35-year-old, British Caucasian male.
The network is also looking to cast, Prince William and Princess Kate, Queen Elizabeth, the rest of the Royal family, and Meghan’s mother Doria.
The role of Doria will be played by an African-American woman in her 50s. She’s described as a mother who “has seen it all and has struggled through adversity.” She’s also “proud and protective towards her beloved daughter.”
No word on if the network will cast her father, or estranged sister Samantha Grant.
There is no premiere date set yet, but reportedly it will air close to the couple’s wedding, which is planned for May 19th.
The movie starts shooting next month in Vancouver.
We can’t wait!
