The countdown starts for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19. Just before the wedding, the Lifetime TV movie "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance," was aired on Sunday night and audience couldn't handle it.
The film also drew 2.21 million viewers, which was second-largest of the day. The movie dramatized the character of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and showed too much of romance.
The casting of Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley as the couple recieved praise, for the most part, while viewers didn't totally love Burgess Abernethy and Laura Mitchell as William and Kate.
Why are they making Kate and Will seem so cold? Did the creators have some hate towards them? Kate is wonderful and there is no need to put her down in order to put Meghan on a pedestal. #ARoyalRomance— Madison McLean (@madison_mmclean) May 14, 2018
Thoughts on #ARoyalRomance so far:— Reina Valentine (@ReinaVCosplay) May 14, 2018
- Parisa is an amazing Meghan Markle. Harry's actor is great, too.
- Someone at Lifetime reeeeally doesn't like Kate Middleton. I mean damn. Leave my girl alone.
- I love the issues they're addressing.
- The romance is believable & sweet.
It’s as cheesy as I feared but I can’t look awayyyyyyy 😂🙈 #HarryandMeghan— ~*Roxy*~ (@Eteriy) May 14, 2018
The audience lost it which means that they forgot that the writers writers took creative license with the film. The creative license gave the writers freedom to experiment with the facts which includes how close Prince Harry and Markle, an American actress, grew on one of their early dates, which was actually a vacation in Botswana.
People trolled the Lifetime movies on Twitter. But even those who thought the made-for-TV movie was pretty "cheesy" seemed to stick with it, with one Twitter user saying it was just as bad as she expected but she still couldn't "look awayyyyyyy."
"I can no longer tell FakeHarry and FakeMeghan from #harryandmeghan," one viewer tweeted. "So, well done #ARoyalRomance."
