Breathless coverage of the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been consuming our newsfeeds since late November. Oh my lord, it’s been less than two months?! Wow. If you’re worried that you missed something, don’t; the Royal couple is getting a Lifetime movie so we can go through it all again.

Deadline reports that Lifetime announced Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story on Sunday at a press event:

The film will examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress.

In other words, every moment we are currently living will be presented to us again by Lifetime.

The network had considerable success with this recipe when they aired William & Kate: The Movie a few weeks before the Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, and if you’ve never watched the trailer, please feast:

I honestly can’t wait to see the actress cast to play actress Meghan Markle. The film will be directed by Menhaj Huda, and will have more serious subjects to deal with than Kate and William’s college romance. Markle has already been dealing with sourfaced racists in the Royal family, plus her estranged half-sister’s insistence on inserting herself into Markle’s life as vocally as possible. There are a million Markle headlines because she’s actually interesting!

But to limit the number of headlines about this family today, let’s just include a clip from this weekend’s BBC interview of the Queen, where she shakes her crown like a play toy. It’s unrelated to the grand love story above, but I hope to see Harry and Meghan grow old together until they no longer give any fucks, too:

That lifetime movie can go rot in hell. The BBC documentary The Coronation however? Definitely recommend it. Sees a lot of the Queen surprisingly off the cuff being at times almost child-like in glee and then annoyed mother at Charles’ behaviour during the Coronation.
