"Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" ('18) / "Becoming Royal" ('19)- Lifetime Movie
 
They have started casting for "When Harry met Meghan"

I assume it is a Lifetime Movie Original similar to the one that aired before William and Kate's wedding.

Yeah...I am not going to lie.....I'll probably watch it.

I think I have seen all the royal romance movies with the exception of the Charles and Camilla one...which I taped to watch at a later date and never got around to. I have seen the Mary and Frederick one as well. Would have loved to seen one about Wilhem Alexander and Maxima!

They are terribly cheesy, the acting is so so (you might see one real name and you are like...Jean Smart...why are you in this move playing Camilla???? ) and they are losey goosey with the facts but I love them!

It's a little odd that they didn't make an actual announcement about the movie or maybe I missed it? Anyway, I will definitely be watching. No shame from me. :tongue:

I'm sure they will announce it officially once it's cast and in production. They just in the initial casting stages now.

I'm going to watch it too. I love these cheesy bio picks. It's always a fun live tweet event. I can already imagine the epically cheesy spins in their first date, Botswana camping, suits set, the statement, meeting the Queen, the proposal. Glorious. Haha.

I love these movies. Also, I'm curious to see the movie about Harry and Meghan.

I have been WAITING for this!!! YES!!

I will pitch a fit though if they don't cast correctly.

Frederik and Mary's movie was hard for me, the guy who they cast as Frederik was so physically unappealing that I couldn't get passed it.

Oh, I understand. I just thought Lifetime movies were like most other movies where they announce the plans for the movie and then later, the casting. But apparently not.

Their take on the Botswana camping trip should be especially interesting. :lol:

Even before that - they've got so much stuff from when they were dating and the paparazzi stalked her and apparently unlawfully entered her garage/home - which is apparently what led Harry to make the statement and give her protection too.

Not to romanticize something so awful but I kinda can't wait for the dramatization of all of this.

I wonder what angle they are going to pursue? Will they start at her childhood? His?

This could actually be more than just a fluffy romantic tale - some good writers could do something really interesting with their love story.

I still hope Hollywood proper puts something together - a story based on them but not about them... kinda like how The Prince and Me was inspired by Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson but clearly dramatized into something completely different.

I'd love to see that too.

Confirmed.

Here is the casting notice. It is a Lifetime Movie. I bet Hallmark also does one.

I am glad they want to hire a biracial woman and not a white woman with a tan, ya know. It is important.

The late Donna Summer has two daughters who are the right age and ethnicity to play MM. The one on the left even has Meghan's nose.

A shame a certain c-list actress who looks like Meghan will be busy planning a wedding :shifty:

Gonna watch the sh.t out of it. The Kate/Will movie was so horribly bad it instantely became amazing

Dman 01-15-2018 12:15 PM

The reason why the movies can be bad; they are made too fast. There’s not enough footage and time of Harry and Meghan on the world stage for a movie to be made. Their relationship was largely conducted in private, so the movie will be largely based on made up scenes.

I wish Lifetime and Hallmark and other networks would wait a few years before making a movie on Harry and Meghan. Allow time to give them more material to work with.

Lifetime movies aren’t the same as it was back in the day. A lot of the movies are now made very fast and pretty much surrounds the same theme over and over again.

They are awesomely bad. There is just so much I look forward to laughing about.

The blind first date
Their secret 3rd date to Bostwana
All the months in between and their take on it
Who they cast as her Suits cast mates and her besties
Will there be fake celeb cameos?
Meeting the royals
The infamous statement and the days leading up to it
Proposal
SAMANTHA

They have so much to play with. :lol::lol:

Yeah but this is the "hot time" for the movie. Dont need to spend a lot on advertising as journalists are willing to write about anything in the lead up to the wedding. Plus this is the time when most people are interested in the couple, so larger audience than normal.

Such a "small" thing as fact has nothing againt money unfortunately. So the movie will ne made in time for the wedding :rofl::rofl:
I expect that Samantha will be a major role in the movie 🤣🤣🤣🤣

The Skyping couple
Scenes of Meghan and mother doing yoga
The infamous brooch incident
Meghan as a young girl, making her own box on the school forms
Harry being told he needs to settle down
Harry lecturing Meghan on what royal life will be like
And so on

No movie about Harry and Meghan is going to be complete without including Bogart and Guy in it. They leave out the dogs and I'm going to start an email writing campaign. :biggrin:
