Revealed: These Are The Actors Starring In The Lifetime Movie ‘Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal’
In 2018, just prior to the royal wedding, Lifetime put out a TV movie titled Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance. The film was just as amazing and terrible as you’d expect, and it left fans of British Royal Family gossip begging for me. Well, those people are in luck: There’s a Harry & Meghan sequel on the way.
What was Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance about?
The first film touched upon Prince Harry’s bachelor days, Meghan Markle’s history of championing female empowerment, and the beginning of their courtship. Though much was fictionalized, as is usually the case with these unauthorized biopics, there were plenty of truthful details. This led up to their engagement, where the movie ends. Things have certainly come full circle for the Duchess of Sussex: Markle starred in multiple TV movies herself back in her acting days, and now there are Lifetime flicks being made about her.
What will Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal be about?
Though it’s been less than a year since the wedding, a lot has happened in that time. It would be surprising if the wedding itself wasn’t at least a little part of the plot. Chances are, there will be a lot of speculation as to what it’s been like behind-the-scenes for the couple, but there are plenty of real occurrences that will likely be addressed, like the differences in the relationship between Markle and her dad and that of the Duchess and her mom, Doria Ragland. It could cover at least the beginning of Markle’s pregnancy.
Charlie Field plays Prince Harry
British actor Field doesn’t have a lot of credits to his name, but he has been rising up the hanks in entertainment. He appeared in one episode of the UK historical drama series Poldark, which airs on BBC One, where he played journalist John Craven. Keeping with his trend of playing real people, he portrayed Carl Von Weizsacker, a German physicist and philosopher, in an episode of the National Geographic series Genius. This was during the show’s first season, which focused on Albert Einstein, who told President Roosevelt about Weizsacker’s plan to build an atomic bomb prior to WWII.
Field has yet to comment on the news, but because he doesn’t seem to spend much time on Twitter, that’s understandable. His Instagram account shows that he recently wrote and starred in a short film, titled Romance Isn’t Dead, which was released (appropriately) on Valentine’s Day.
Tiffany Smith plays Meghan Markle
Smith has carved out a niche for herself in the comic book realm. She’s a well-known host for programs like AMC’s Geeking Out, CW FanTalk: The Flash, and DC Daily. Smith has been branching out into scripted programming, appearing on series such as Jane the Virgin and Supernatural. She even had an uncredited role as a CIA Agent in the Oscar-nominated film Vice.
The actress was quick to celebrate the news once it was released, sharing her excitement with fans. Like her co-star, she also put out a recent Valentine’s Day-themed horror project: a web series titled Swipe Right and Die.
When is Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal premiering?
Just as there have been no casting announcements besides the main two, there is not yet a release date for the Lifetime movie, other than that it will be sometime in Spring 2019. Maybe they’ll opt to have it air on the couple’s first anniversary? Whatever the case, there are plenty of exciting announcements on the horizon for Royal fanatics.
