How Would You Cast A Movie About Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Leaving The Royal Family?

Because you KNOW they're going to make one soon.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you surely have heard about the latest royal family drama.

For the uninitiated, the Sussexes — aka Harry and Meghan — announced last week that they'll be stepping back from their royal duties. This apparently came as a surprise to the rest of the royal family (the Queen included), and they've pretty much been in crisis mode ever since. Oh, and Harry and Meghan are moving to Canada!

While the royal family sorts things out in private, I can only sit here and dream about how this will all play out in the Hollywood version — because you KNOW they won't waste any time turning this into a film!!!

I'm looking at you, Lifetime. But I can also see a movie about this story winning an Oscar in 2025.

So, it begs the question: Who would you cast in all of the roles?
