The first teaser trailer for the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Lifetime movie is here, and it looks phenomenal. Decent look-a-likes? Check. Swooning scenes of love amidst a strict royal protocol? Check.
A literal couch that could have been ripped straight from The Bachelor? Checkity-fucking-check.
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance was whipped up in quick smart time following the engagement of the Suits actress and the ginger royal. Starring Murray Fraser (who clearly got his lucky break because he looked a bit like Harry) and Parisa Fitz-Henley (who had a small but significant role in Jessica Jones, so well done to Lifetime here), it tells the story of their secret romance, royal engagement, and utter scrutiny from the public and the media.
“I don’t need my life to be this perfect royal picture,” says Harry. “I just need you.”
The film premieres May 13 on Lifetime, ahead of the royal wedding on May 19. You better believe I’ll be watching it.
