17 Priceless Quotes from Lifetime's Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance
The TV movie about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle features some unforgettable dialogue: Here are the best lines.
It’s finally here! No, not the royal wedding — the Lifetime movie about the royal couple!
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance premieres Sunday and features key moments throughout Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s courtship. With Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley stepping into the lead roles, the TV movie captures the couple’s blind date, their romantic trip to Botswana, and, of course, that fateful, cozy chicken dinner where they were formally engaged. In between, they interact with their families — yep, Will and Kate are there too — and battle the relentless paparazzi and tabloids.
Much like Lifetime’s William & Kate movie, which aired the year of their wedding and starred Grey’s Anatomy‘s Camilla Luddington and Grimm‘s Nico Evers-Swindell, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance features some unforgettable moments we haven’t seen (and quite possibly never really happened) and some truly choice dialogue.
Here, we’ve broken down the 17 t-shirt worthy lines from the film.
Harry: “Aren’t you bored of being perfect yet?
Will: “It’s not me that’s perfect; it’s Kate. I just shove her out there and she makes me look good.”
Harry: “Is she hot?”
Violet, Harry and Meghan’s matchmaker: “Put it this way, ginger boy. If you weren’t a prince, you wouldn’t have a shot.”
Meghan, to Harry: “I’m gonna actually need you to hold off on the compliments until you apologize for being 40 minutes late.”
Meghan: “I actually wanted to be the first bi-racial female President of the United States of America but then I ended up as a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal.”
Harry, stating the facts: “Best blind date ever.”
Doria Radlan, Meghan’s mother, after hearing about that first date: “Did you give the milk away for free?”
Meghan, in Botswana: “This is a lot better than the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland.”
Will: “Kate and I binge-watched Suits over the weekend. I love that phrase, binge-watched.”
Kate: “She makes Wallace Simpson look like Dame Judi Dench.”
Meghan: “I was in Botswana with Prince Harry.”
Neal, her hairstylist: “Michael Jackson’s son?!”
Kate: “We all have to live by the same rules. If she’s your girl, she can’t have opinions.”
Will: “At least not in public. In private, you have a lot of opinions, darling.”
Charles: “Yes, yes, she certainly does.”
Meghan, reacting to Harry’s public statement about her safety: “I’m a grown ass woman living in a real modern world and not some fragile wench up in an ivory tower. My tower ain’t ivory, dude!”
