'Harry & Meghan: Escaping The Palace!' Movie Announced

Lifetime has long planned for a third movie, but it wasn't until recently did they finally could confirm. Since a year ago, news of a second sequel has emerged. The third movie is titled 'Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace!' and will focus on the story of Megxit and the drama that revolves around it. Deadline reported this movie would be about "what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind to make a future for themselves and their son Archie."

The movie is a sequel to the previous movie, 'Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal' that was released in 2019.

As the pair made headlines with their surprising claims made during their interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS, producers will base their story mainly on those answers.

The first movie 'Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance' focuses on the early romance story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The direct sequel covers the royal wedding as Meghan Markle learns to adjust to her new life as a family member of the royal family.


This new movie will be conflict-centered as it addresses family feuds between the Dukes and Duchesses.

The actor and actress that portrayed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the 2018's movie were Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley.

Previously, the movies have been addressing fictional events that are loosely based on real-life stories and accounts from the royals.

In the 2019's sequel, the role of the Duchess of Sussex was played by Tiffany Smith while British star Charlie Field portrayed Prince Harry. The movie moved towards a more playful tone as it tells of events and days that led up to the royal wedding, its processions, and the Sussexes' days as a married couple.

Filming is scheduled to begin this Spring.

The executive producers are Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss, and Menhaj Huda will direct it. Scarlett Lacey returns as the screenwriter after writing for the previous two Lifetime movies.

Speaking about how she wrote her screenplay, Lacey told Vanity Fair they were from "smattering of sources—from real life and reports—for her screenplay." There were close people of the royals, journalists, but essentially Lacey relied a lot on her imagination.

The movie is set to be released later this year.
