A new Lifetime film will chronicle Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s split from the royal family.

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will air later this year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It will be the third Lifetime film dedicated to the couple. The first, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, came out in 2018. It was followed in 2019 by Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.

Escaping the Palace will depict Lifetime’s account of the events that led Meghan and Harry to exit the royal family and step down from their duties as working royals.

The pair recently discussed their decision in a headline-making interview with Oprah Winfrey.
