More from Deadline

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace rehashes what drove Harry (Dean) and Meghan (Morton) away from the palace to 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 may have contributed to his mother’s untimely death. The film will examine the dynamics between Will and Harry, Kate and Meghan, and Harry with Will and Charles, that lead to the ultimate break from the royal ties.

Executive producers are Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss. Menhaj Huda will direct from a script by Scarlett Lacey.
