Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding is just two weeks away, which means the fictional Lifetime movie about their romance is just one week away. And Vanity Fair has it that the Palace is very, very concerned about the steamy bedroom scene in it. “What I’ve heard is that they’re seriously worried about the sex scene,” director Menhaj Huda told the outlet on Thursday. He knows this through “my wife’s best friend has been dating the press secretary of the palace.”
Producer Merideth Finn had a playful response to this during a panel for the film: “Let them worry. People have sex.” A little glimpse of the scandalous scene can be seen in the latest trailer for the film, about 20 seconds in:
This film is also very, very loosely based on the actual love story between Markle and Harry, a lot of which has been kept private between Markle and Harry themselves. “We tried to be really truthful,” co-screenwriter Scarlett Lacey said. “We used our imaginations in places, but there was so much available, from Meghan’s own words [via her interviews and blog]…There were so many things we knew to be true, if not in words, then in spirit.”
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance airs May 13 at 8/7 p.m. central on Lifetime.
