'Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance': Princess Diana & Queen Elizabeth II Cast
TV Insider previously reported that Parisa Fitz-Henley had taken on the role of the American actress and Murray Fraser will be playing the red-headed Prince. And now, Deadline reports that the roles of Princess Diana (Harry's mother) and Queen Elizabeth II (Harry's grandmother) have also been filled.
Bonnie Soper (Filthy Rich) will play the late Diana. Meanwhile, Maggie Sullivun (Fargo) will play Her Royal Highness. Soper confirmed the news on her social media account:
The resemblance really is uncanny.
The movie will "examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 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. It will also explore the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a "divorced American actress."
The movie is set for a Spring 2018 release, which times perfectly with the actual Royal wedding. Markle and Prince Harry will wed on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
