Meghan Markle already has a Lifetime movie about her, and Parisa Fitz-Henley is set to play the part.

Fitz-Henley, who is known for her work on NBC’s Midnight, Texas and on Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, will star alongside Murray Fraser, who will play Prince Harry.

Last month, Lifetime announced that Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story would “trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.”

On the way to royalty

Markle and Prince Harry have been touring the United Kingdom ahead of the royal wedding, making public appearances together to the delight of everyone following their story. Last month, they stopped by Wales, where they visited a 2,000-year-old castle.

While there, not only did the couple get to see the historic site but they marked another milestone in Markle’s introduction into her newly royal life: she received her first curtsy.

People magazine noted that a woman curtsied to Markle while introducing her and Prince Harry to the castle and was the first to bestow the honor onto Markle.

The curtsy is a sign of respect and deference to royalty, and as Markle is about to join the royal family, she’ll have to get used to seeing it around.

While public displays like curtsying is a new experience for Markle, she has already had plenty of practice to perfect her own. She reportedly curtsied to her soon-to-be grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth last month on Christmas Day, bowing her head in respect.

Like any modern bride, Markle has reportedly been extremely hands-on throughout the wedding planning process for her May 19 nuptials. Word on the street is she has already settled on her wedding dress designer and has weighed in on the menu for her big day at Windsor Castle.

The world just can’t get enough of the royal wedding preparations, and we’re all on the countdown to the big day.
