A new trailer for the upcoming Lifetime film Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace has been unveiled.
The first, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, was released in 2018 and was a dramatisation of the couple’s early romance. The second, Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, came out in 2019 and was inspired by the pair’s first few months as a married couple.
Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will show a dramatisation of the events that led Harry and Meghan to step down from their royal duties. It will be released on 6 September 2021 on Lifetime.
Viewers reacted to the trailer for the upcoming film after the Twitter account FilmUpdates shared it on Thursday.
“Omg is this a parody of The Crown??” one person asked, referencing Netflix’s show also inspired by the royal family.
“Lol this ain't no The Crown,” someone else wrote.
“Oh I was sooo hoping this would be a hilarious parody,” another person commented on YouTube.
Others, however, expressed their excitement ahead of the film’s release and praised its casting.
Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace features Jordan Dean as Harry and Sydney Morton as Meghan.
