Prince Harry & Meghan Markle: The Funniest Reactions to Lifetime’s Movie About the Royal Couple

What happened when Harry met Meghan?

On Sunday night, Lifetime aired its delightfully cheesy dramatization of the romance between England’s Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle — which, apparently, involved lions.

Though Harry & Meghan may not be the most accurate depiction of their relationship, it’s all royal watchers have until next weekend’s televised wedding.

Below, see the Internet’s best reactions to the movie.

Casting Call 

Parisa Fitz-Henley is the spitting image of Meghan — and nailed her voice, too. Burgess Abernathy as Prince William? Not so much …

Inner Conflict

The line between love and hate is always thin when watching a Lifetime masterpiece, and Harry & Meghan proved no exception.

Half the time I’m yelling at the TV, the other half I’m like this is so spot on #HarryandMeghan #ARoyalRomance #LifetimeMovies

Team Meghan

People loved seeing fictional Meghan be completely unimpressed by Prince Harry’s (Murray Fraser) first-date tardiness and royal title.

Oh! She’s sassy!! That means she’s perfect!! 🙄#HarryAndMeghan #ARoyalRomance

Can You Feel the Love Tonight?

Meghan and Harry’s second date involved an overnight trip to Botswana, a theory that Princess Diana’s spirit is possessing a lion and some sexy time.

hey boys i’m ready and willing to be botswana’d #ARoyalRomance

Yes Meghan, a lion almost ate me when I was a kid and I used my super human strength to leap to my feet to deflect a shot from my dad’s shotgun. #ARoyalRomance #HarryAndMeghan

She gave it up on the second date, some females give it up at a club in a bathroom with a stranger 🤷🏾‍♀️. #ARoyalRomance

Side note: I hope they put on mosquito repellent. Bites on the bits, not ideal.#ARoyalRomance

Harry and Megan mated in Botswana, and so did two lions outside their tent.

Hopefully one of them wasn’t Diana Spirit Lion, cause that would be awks. #ARoyalRomance

Hating on Kate

Fake Kate (Laura Mitchell) was super critical of Meghan and counseled Harry against pursuing a relationship … and Twitter wasn’t having it.

Wow! Painting Kate as a racist. Not cool. Done. #ARoyalRomance

— Laura (@ReallyLaLa1) May 14, 2018

I know this is only a movie, but I highly doubt that Kate is this stuck up. She went through an equally amount of chaos with the press for the majority of her adult life. #ARoyalRomance

Why are Will and Kate being made to look bad and rude in this movie? #HarryAndMeghan #ARoyalRomance #LifetimeMovies #LifetimeTV

Booking.com

Bye, Bella

Bella, a completely fabricated character, spilled the English breakfast tea on what it’s really like being a member of the royal family — and tried to intimidate the hell out of our heroine. She’s the Regina George of Buckingham Palace, so of course Twitter dragged her.

Making a Statement

Just like in real life, Harry issued a scathing rebuke of the press and public for their treatment of Meghan. Unlike in real life, it led to a brief breakup … and corny airport reunion.

I love Prince Harry going alpha male. Mad gingers are hot. Someone please help me.#ARoyalRomance

She Said Yes

Harry and Meghan said they got engaged while cooking a roast chicken during a quiet night at home, but the Lifetime movie delayed the sweet scene.

Happily Ever After

One montage set to a 1990s pop song and fading into real footage later, that’s a wrap!

I can no longer tell FakeHarry and FakeMeghan from #harryandmeghan So, well done #ARoyalRomance.
