Lifetime Releases Official Stills, Premiere Date For ‘Harry And Meghan: A Royal Romance’


Lifetime's upcoming movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance drops just a week before their real-life wedding, and the latest stills are out now.

The Fab Foursome

The new pics don't just feature the titular couple either, as Prince William and Kate Middleton also appear, as a bonus.

The shot in question showcases the royal foursome dining together in a high-class establishment. Harry (Murray Fraser) has his arm wrapped around Meghan (Parisa Fitz-Henley), while next to them William (Burgess Abernathy) and Kate (Laura Mitchell) gaze lovingly into each other's eyes.

In real life, the royal couples shared an easy rapport on their first official engagement together on Feb. 28. It stands to reason that their on-screen counterparts should be much the same. The were out in full force again on Monday to celebrate Commonwealth Day with a special service at Westminster Abbey.

In keeping with the hugely romantic slant of the upcoming flick, another photo shows Harry and Meghan, eyes shut, slow-dancing together. The resemblance to the real-life couple is uncanny.

Fritz-Henley gave the first glimpse of the cast with a selfie taken in bed just last month, which she shared with the hashtag #gingerlove.

The movie, which drops May 13, just six days before Harry and Meghan's actual nuptials will take place, kicks off with the couple's first date and charts their relationship all the way to their highly publicized engagement.

Production is currently underway in Vancouver, BC, and Abernathy celebrated his 31s birthday on set.

"I got treated like the future King of England yesterday," he captioned a post on Instagram.

Doing Them Justice

The cast opened up about playing the royals recently too, with Fraser admitting that the most difficult element of the role was the aesthetic.

"Dying my hair ginger, which was kind of a shock. Especially with my friends and family seeing that and just completely ripping me to shreds!" he admitted.

Fritz-Henley, meanwhile, was so eager to play Markle she petitioned her manager for the role.

"I saw their engagement interview and thought it was so sweet and ended up making a call to my manager saying, 'If they ever make a movie about this, I'd love to audition,'" she revealed.

The Jamaican-American actress also opened up about the similarities between her and Markle's experiences in the industry.

"There are a lot of similarities too in our experiences, in particular dealing with race. I completely related to a lot of [her] feelings about the world, about women and our place in the world," she advised.

William and Kate's relationship has already been the subject of two television movies, one on Lifetime, the other on Hallmark both released to coincide with their 2011 wedding.

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance premieres on Sunday, May 13 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
