The cable network announced the project on Sunday by Lifetime head of programming Liz Gateley during 2018 winter Television Critics Association press tour.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the film will trace Prince Harry and Meghan's relationship from the day they met on a blind date setup by mutual friends to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their much anticipated engagement.More news: No-deal Brexit to cost Scotland $17.4B by 2030
The movie is now casting.
Lifetime has not set a premiere date for the movie. Scarlett Lacey will provide the script with Merideth Finn, and Michele Weiss will be its executive producer. Too bad, because she could have starred in the movie about herself and her royal love for Prince Harry. But it is worth nothing that they did the same thing when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married, and "William & Kate: The Movie" aired a couple of weeks before their wedding.
Prince Harry and Markle will tie the knot May 19 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
