The leads have been cast for the latest royal romance movie – and we can’t get over how much this actress looks like Meghan Markle!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Lifetime movie has been announced, and we cannot get over how much the actress looks like Meghan herself!
The cast of Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance have been revealed, and dashing British Actor Murray Fraser will play Prince Harry, while Parisa Fitz-Henley will be Meghan.
Aren’t they identical?!
Parisa, 40, is known for her small roles in Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, and will be taking on the role of actress turned soon-to-be-duchess Meghan.
Murray, on the other hand, has had small roles in ITV’s Victoria, and detective drama The Loch, and is pretty dashing himself…
In an interesting twist, Meghan has played the love interest in two TV movies we can’t help but think look pretty similar to Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance (minus the royal element). In When Sparks Fly (2014), she played a big city journalist who returns home and falls in love with the man she left behind. In Dater’s Handbook (2016), she plays a successful woman who tries to find love using The Dater’s Handbook.
Given the Hollywood feel of Harry and Meghan’s jet-set romance, with its top-secret dates, trips to exotic countries and public displays of affection, it was only a matter of time before this film was announced!
Lifetime has stated that the film will “examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress.”
Parisa shared her excitement on Twitter…
And fans were quick to point out that they also see the similarities between her and Meghan!
Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance is due to debut this spring, probably around the same time as the May 19th wedding.
Production will begin this week, with filming taking place between Los Angeles and Vancouver.
