Lifetime has confirmed the sequel movie depicting the life of British couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The sequel will star Tiffany Marie Smith (Supernatural) as Meghan and Charlie Field (Genius) as Prince Harry.

The success of 2018’s “Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance” prompted Lifetime to bring the movie back in the cable channel. “A Royal Romance” is Lifetime’s best original movie, and the company boasts debut ratings of 2.2 million viewers.

The original series ranked first interaction in Facebook and Twitter on May 13 for new primetime ad-supported cable show, sports and news specials excluded, as reported by Nielsen Social Content Ratings. The movie also made Lifetime’s Twitter account as the most organic impressions that the account has produced in a single day last year.

With the positive feedback from viewers, Lifetime confirmed that there will be another Harry and Meghan movie — “Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.” The sequel reportedly will focus more on the royal couple’s first year of marriage and may touch the subject on Meghan’s adjustment to royal life.

While many are happy to hear the news of the sequel and recasting of actors, royal watchers react to the casting of Field as Prince Harry.

Below are some of the casting comments, as shared via Twitter.

There are also some questions that hopefully the movie “Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal” can answer. One of them would be if there was really a feud between the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Meghan. Will it share details on what went on during Meghan’s lavish baby shower in New York? Will it show her relationship with the Queen? Will it show if the royal palace calls them out for royal policies they break?

On top of those questions, Lifetime has not yet disclosed why they recast actors.

“Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal” will be filming by the end of February and is expected to be released by Spring 2019.
