Good news comes to the royal fans who wait. Those who are obsessed with Harry and Meghan’s love story were in for a treat last Monday. The sequel to lifetime’s romantic drama about the prince and the duchess aired and the TV movie was a hit.

The first Lifetime film, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, was about how the royal couple met and fell in love. This time, it’s all about the story behind their decision to wed in the sequel Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.

The lead actors were recast and Tiffany Smith who plays Meghan is equally captivating as the Duchess. Alongside her was leading man Charlie Field who played Harry in the movie. The two had undeniable chemistry and with performances that are truly moving.

The film is all about the royal wedding and is based on Meghan Markle’s heavily publicized family drama. It tackles the salacious rumors that surrounded the Markle family especially involving Meghan’s dad Thomas Markle.

We may not what really went down during this time in the Duchess’ life, but at least Lifetime makes an effort to paint us a picture. Much like the first movie about the royal couple, most of what happens in the film is pure fiction. It’s not a documentary after all. Still, the surprisingly satisfying movie was enough for royal fans.

Other familiar royal figures were also portrayed in the Lifetime movie. This includes Laura Mitchell as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge or better known to us as Kate Middleton. Prince William, on the other hand, is played by Jordan Whalen.

If you missed it, you’ll have to wait until lifetime somehow puts the movie up for online streaming.
