The movie follows the pair as they navigate their road to the royal wedding with members on both sides questioning the two's relationship and Markle's ability to lead.

The Trilogy Continues

Two weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's emotional interview with Oprah, revealing their reasoning behind leaving the Royal Family, Lifetime has now announced the third installment of the Harry & Meghan series: Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace (2021).

Set to begin production in late spring of this year, the film will follow the two as they decide to leave the ties of the Royal Family and the personal issues they had to face with themselves and family members. Lifetime stated the film would,

"reveal what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie."

The third film is produced by the same women behind the first two Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss, as well as the same writer Scarlett Lacey and director Menhaj Huda.

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace is premiering later this year, only on Lifetime.
