Not shying away from the brutal public scrutiny that Markle has endured since moving across the pond, the dramatized version of her life takes some artistic liberties, at one point showing a likely fabricated moment where Meghan confides in a friend about the setbacks of being the Duchess of Sussex.

“I feel like I’m pretending to be this beautiful swan,” a stressed Meghan admits as the scene cuts to flashes to her posing alongside Harry, William and Kate on Christmas Day.

In another scene Markle is taunted on her wedding day and told, “Look at yourself in a mirror and all you see is a hypocrite.”

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, screenwriter Scarlett Lacey shared how her personal ties with some of Markle’s Hollywood friends helped her create a plot thats mixes truths and fiction together almost seamlessly.

“This film deals with the drama of planning a wedding: the moment you’d much rather elope, the moment your family might mess it all up – and they nearly do,” says Lacey.

“We got to do some stuff with Kate, which I really liked,” added actress Tiffany Smith who plays the Duchess.

“I think one of the biggest things, obviously, about Meghan is that she’s such a supporter of other women and women’s empowerment. That was something I think was important for all of us to focus on, myself included.”
