Remember these royal performances?

In honour of Lifetime® movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, we bow down to some forgotten regal adaptations  

It’s a fairy tale for the modern age – a dashing prince falls hopelessly in love with a glamorous American TV star…

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance. Monday 14 May, 9pm, Lifetime®/HD (CH 208/209). Also available for 30 days in Catch Up > Channels > Lifetime®

This Monday, let’s get the wedding celebrations off to an early start the only way we know how – with a Lifetime® Original Movie of course!


You’ll feel like you’ve been with the happy couple every step of the way, thanks to this one-off depiction of their love story. Soak it all up, from the first blind date to their clandestine courtship, all the way through to the moment Harry popped the question – over a chicken dinner.

The casting is spot on – Harry is played by Murray Fraser (The Loch), while Parisa Fitz-Henley (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) stars as Meghan. It’s also directed by Menhaj Huda, who has previously worked on KidulthoodQueer As FolkEastEndersCoronation Street and Emmerdale. So we are in safe hands.


Fraser and Fitz-Henley are following in the footsteps of Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, Jenna Coleman, Claire Foy and Matt Smith – all of whom have famously played royals. But what about this lot? We look at the overlooked portrayals in some lesser known crown jewels of cinema and TV…
