Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still adjusting to life outside of the Royal Family.

But that hasn't stopped a US production company from recreating Megxit in a film reimagining the couple's decision to leave The Firm.

In a new trailer for Lifetime's 'Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace' emotions are heightened between Jordan Dean and Sydney Morton, playing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

And viewers can catch a glimpse of very uptight portrayals of the Queen, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The upcoming film, which is entirely fictionalised but based on real events, sees each of the senior royals sitting down for an interview-style shot in which they talk about life in The Firm.

Actor Laura Mitchell, who plays Kate, insists that "this is the life we signed up for", adding that the Royal Family "values dignity above all else" while a shot of an unhappy Meghan Markle, played by Sydney Morton, says she "never thought" life in the Monarchy "would be easy" but only ever "wanted to make the Queen proud".


Actor Jordan Whalen, who plays Prince William, can be seen voicing concern over the future of The Firm, warning that "the Monarchy is at stake" while an unnamed actress playing the Queen insists "it will always survive".

Princess Diana is also seen portrayed by actress Bonnie Soper in a scene that will no doubt add further fuel to speculation that the film will focus, at least in part, on the impact that her life and death had on the Duke of Sussex.

Although the new trailer is just 30 seconds long, it is packed with plenty of conflict and emotion.


It follows the first trailer released by Lifetime which showed Jordan Dean and Sydney Morton acting out several heated discussions between Harry and Meghan in which the former is seen expressing his fears that his wife is being "hounded to death".

The trailer also showed Dean and Morton reenacting scenes from the Sussexes' interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in March, sitting down in a lush garden while wearing near-identical outfits to those modelled by the Duke and Duchess for their primetime chat with the TV mogul.

Thus far, Lifetime has shared very little detail about the exact plot of the movie, only promising that it will offer viewers a fictionalised account of "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," according to Deadline.

Filming began last month in Vancouver, where its stars have been regularly photographed filming a variety of scenes, including a recreation of Princess Diana's deadly car crash and a reenactment of a home video that Harry and Meghan shared during their Oprah interview.

On-set images taken earlier this month captured Dean and Morton filming scenes with a young actor who is thought to be playing Harry and Meghan's son Archie as a toddler.
