Back in March, Lifetime announced its plans for a third movie all about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The upcoming television movie one will tackle the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's historic decision to step away from royal life, as well as their first year in the United States.
On Wednesday (June 23), Lifetime revealed the first trailer for Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, which sees Jordan Dean portraying Prince Harry and Sydney Morton as Meghan. One scene in the trailer shows Harry waking up in a panic before telling Meghan, "I see you literally being hounded to death, and I'm powerless to stop it."
According to a press release, Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will “reveal 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,” the press release continued. “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 led to the ultimate break from their royal ties."
No official release date has been announced for the movie just yet, however, Lifetime previously stated Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will be released sometime this fall.
