Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have Been Recast: See the New Stars of Lifetime's Becoming Royal
Charlie Field and Tiffany Marie Smith will portray the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the next chapter of their lives
Lifetime has announced the casting for Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, a sequel to last year’s surprise hit Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance. Charlie Field and Tiffany Marie Smith will portray the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the next chapter of their lives.
Field is a rising red-headed actor whose credits include the National Geographic series Genius, while Smith has appeared in small roles on Jane the Virgin and Supernatural.
According to a press release, the movie will examine the newlyweds’ love story, “pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the royal family during their pivotal first years of marriage.”
Filming is set to begin later this month in Vancouver, and the movie will premiere this spring.
During the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in L.A. on Sunday, A+E president of programming Rob Sharenow told reporters that Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley, who portrayed the royal couple in Lifetime’s original film last year, won’t be reprising their roles for the sequel.
“Unfortunately our original royal couple, Murray [Fraser] and Parisa [Fitz-Henley] are not available. So more news to come on who will take their crowns,” Sharenow said, according to The Wrap.
