And no one knows what to think…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, making news this month for the arrival of baby Archie.

But it wasn’t their newborn or their move to the newly renovated Frogmore Cottage that got the world talking this week.

Instead, it was the new Lifetime rom com about their relationship, Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, that became a point of conversation.

The sequel to last year’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance tells the story of the couple’s first year of marriage, ‘pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the Royal Family'.

From the Thomas Markle pre-wedding dramas to the royal feud rumours, this film seems to cover everything, unsurprisingly making it a highly-anticipated watch.

But premiering just days ago, it has proven divisive, with one person in particular taking against it.


The person in question? Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle, who has just spoken out about the Lifetime project to voice his unhappiness.

Speaking to TMZ after watching the film, Thomas described it as ‘dumb fiction’, reportedly angry by how he was perceived, and insisting that he didn’t bail on attending Meghan’s wedding last minute.

Hmmm. OK.

The film is available on US Lifetime.
