It added: "The movie details the struggles of the new parents and unique challenges of being part of the Royal Family, which ultimately led Harry and Meghan to give up their royal ties to forge a new life on their own terms."

ED! contacted Lifetime for comment.

Harry and Meghan shocked the world earlier this year when they announced their decision to step down and carve out a new life for themselves and their son, Archie.

The movie details the struggles of the new parents.

Initially they moved to Canada, living for some time in relative seclusion on Vancouver Island. From there, they took up residence in Los Angeles.

Now, a forthcoming biography is promising to offer an "honest, up-close portrait" of the royal couple and tell their "true story".
