Meghan Markle Questions If She 'Made The World's Biggest Mistake' In Lifetime's New Movie 'Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace' — Watch
It's not all rainbows and butterflies for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in Lifetime's new movie Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace.
On Tuesday, July 6, the network dropped a new trailer for the movie, which will premiere in the fall.
Jordan Dean — who plays Harry — begins by saying, "I will do everything in my power to keep my wife and son safe."
Kate Middleton (played by Laura Mitchell) seemingly tells Meghan (Sydney Morton), "This is the life we signed up for. Here we value dignity above all else."

"I never thought this would be easy, but I wanted to make the Queen proud," Meghan says.
Prince William (Jordan Whalen) then declares, "Let everyone understand it: the monarchy is at stake."
Queen Elizabeth (Maggie Sullivan) adds, "The monarchy will always survive."
The teaser ends by Meghan wondering, "Have I made the world's biggest mistake?"
In the short clip, viewers also got a glimpse of William and Harry's late mother, Princess Diana (Bonnie Soper), who died in a car accident in 1997.
People took the comments section to note that the film is cringeworthy. One person wrote, "Hahaha!! Its like a longform SNL skit 😂🔥👏," while another added, "Hahahah! Too funny!"

A third user said, "Laughable and entertaining!"
The movie will "explore 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 movie will detail Meghan’s growing isolation and sadness, their disappointment that ‘The Firm’ was not defending them against the press’s attacks and Harry’s fear that history would repeat itself and he would not be able to protect his wife and son from the same forces that may have contributed to his mother’s untimely death,” the release continues.
Previously, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance premiered in 2018, while Becoming Royal was released in 2019; this will be the third movie, which will focus on Meghan and Harry's exit from the royal family.
