Get ready, royal family fans. The Lifetime special chronicling the relationship of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is coming, and it is going to be the TV event of the century (after the actual royal wedding, of course).
And since we literally cannot wait until May to see Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, we’re obsessively watching the teaser trailer that just came out over and over and over. No regrets, no shame. Here you go, fam:
Seriously, how perfect is that? The moment that shows them in bed together might be just a little scandalous, but this is Lifetime, so that’s to be expected. And oh, my God, the part when Harry says, “I don’t need my life to be this perfect royal picture. I just need you.” I died.
It’s also surprising and impressive how much the stars, Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley, look like the real Harry and Markle. This is going to be a must-see, no doubt about it.
Lifetime has come under fire a few times in recent years for its unauthorized biopics. The one about Britney Spears was particularly controversial and was criticized for its many inaccuracies. Whether Harry & Meghan goes over any better remains to be seen, but for now, the royal family is refraining from making any comment about the film. Either way, we’ll be watching since half the fun of Lifetime movies is how bad they can be.
