The actors have been cast to play Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the upcoming Lifetime movie charting their whirlwind romance.

Deadline reports that Jessica Jones star Parisa Fitz-Henley and The Loch and Victoria actor Murray Fraser will play the happy couple in Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance.

While Parisa is a dead ringer for Meghan, Fraser is less like Harry, although a little red hair dye may make all the difference.

The film will chart their romance from the time they were introduced to each other by friends to their secretive initial courtship and their engagement.

Meghan was an actress on popular show Suits and has already been married and those aspects of her life will also reportedly be explored.

Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November and they are set to wed on May 19 so the air date is expected to be prior to then.
