A cinematic version of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s fallout with the British Royal family will be released this year, courtesy of Lifetime Network.
The movie, aptly titled ‘Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace‘ is set to premiere on Monday, September 6. This would be the third installment in the Lifetime network’s Harry & Meghan television movie franchise. Following 2018’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance and also 2019’s Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be played by Jordan Dean and Sydney Morton, respectively.
The movie delves into what drove Harry (Dean) and Meghan (Morton) away from the palace. Prompting the young couple to make a different future for themselves and their son Archie. Meghan’s growing isolation and sadness will also be displayed as well as the couple’s disappointment that “The Firm” was not defending them against the press.
In a new trailer released by Lifetime, the couple deals with the situation as well as the rest of the Royal family.

In one clip, a palace aide tells Prince William (Jordan Whalen) and Kate Middleton (Laura Mitchell), “let it be known who the real royals are”. In another, Harry vows, “I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum” . We also see paparazzi cameras flash around what appears to be a re-creation of the 1997 car crash in which Harry’s mother, Princess Diana died.
