If you can’t get enough of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, get ready to head across the pond with Lifetime as the network has announced that a follow-up to the 2018 hit movie about the couple is in the works.
“Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal” (working title) will debut later this year and will “continue the love story of the newlyweds, pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the royal family during their pivotal first year of marriage,” Lifetime said in a press release.
New actors will play the royals in the upcoming movie, which will be executive produced by Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss. Menhaj Huda will direct from a script by Scarlett Lacey. Production begins later this month in Vancouver and will debut this spring.
Lifetime previously released “Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance” starring Murray Fraser as Prince Harry and Parisa Fitz-Henley as Meghan Markle. The film followed their romance from the moment they met through the eventual engagement. See the first movie’s actors in character via the pic above.
Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex wed on May 19, 2018.
