It was only a matter of time. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's romance is coming to the small screen in the form of a Lifetime movie.

On January 14, the network announced Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story, a film which will dramatize the couple's love story "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," per Deadline.

Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley will star in the project as the bride- and groom-to-be, according to Vulture, and while there's no premiere date yet, sometime before Meghan and Harry's May 19 nuptials would be an obvious target.

Menhaj Huda of The Royals will direct; the script was written by Scarlett Lacey. Other casting information has yet to be shared publicly.

Keep in mind, Meghan & Harry's predecessor, William & Kate: The Movie, helped launch the careers of such actresses as Louise Linton, wife of treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin.
