Lifetime orders third Harry and Meghan movie



In what is now a trilogy, Lifetime has ordered their third movie about Harry and Meghan, Harry and Meghan: Escaping The Palace. They're looking for another set of actors to portray the couple - production will begin this spring.

The logline: “‘Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace’ reveals what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie. The movie will detail Meghan’s growing isolation and sadness, their disappointment that ‘The Firm’ was not defending them against the press’s attacks and Harry’s fear that history would repeat itself and he would not be able to protect his wife and son from the same forces that caused his mother’s untimely death. ‘Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace’ will also reveal the private family feuds between Will and Harry, Kate and Meghan, and Harry with Will and Charles, that lead to the ultimate break from the royal ties.”
