And, Murray Fraser, who's ...not exactly a dead ringer for Harry, will play the gregarious ginger prince.

Fitz-Henley is best known for her role as Reva Connors in Marvel's "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage," while Fraser has starred in "The Loch" and the royal series "Victoria."

Lifetime reveals the movie will chronicle the romance between the beloved prince and his new fiancée "from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress."
