There's going to be a movie about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, centring around the departure from the UK, and their royal duties.

Named Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, and set to air on Lifetime, the film is the third in a franchise about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The first movie Harry & Meghan: A Modern Romance, was released in 2018, and chronicled the couple's romance, while 2019's Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, aired almost a year ago.

It comes after the royal pair recently had a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired on CBS, alleging racism in the royal family, Meghan's mental health crisis and the powers of 'the institution'.

This will be the third Lifetime movie about the royal couple (

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace is set to portray the events that led to Harry and Meghan's departure.

A spokesperson said: "Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace reveals 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.

"The movie will detail Meghan's growing isolation and sadness, their disappointment that 'The Firm' was not defending them against the press's attacks and Harry's fear that history would repeat itself and he would not be able to protect his wife and son from the same forces that caused his mother's untimely death."

It comes after Harry and Meghan spoke their truth to Oprah recently (

They continued: '"[The movie] will also reveal the private family feuds between Will and Harry, Kate and Meghan, and Harry with Will and Charles, that lead to the ultimate break from the royal ties".

The cast has yet to be revealed, but the first two instalments featured different sets of actors playing Harry and Meghan so we could be in for a suprise announcement.

All going well, production is set to begin this spring, with the hopes it will be ready to debut later this year.

Harry & Meghan: Escaping The Palace is to be executive produced by Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss, while Menhaj Huda will direct from a script by Scarlett Lacey.
