The tumultuous recent events in the lives of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be screened in a new film called “Harry and Meghan: Escape from the Palace.” However, the picture has already been criticized because of a provocative scene.
New footage from the upcoming film has caused outrage on the Net. The film will open with a dream scene in which the Duchess of Sussex gets into a car accident.
Actress Sydney Morton, who portrays Meghan lying in an overturned car surrounded by paparazzi before Prince Harry, played by Jordan Dean, rushes to the car door to open it. In the next scene, the star wakes up in bed with Prince Harry and his son Archie.
After the footage was published, many on the Web expressed their outrage and criticized the film for the fact that the creators used Princess Diana’s tragedy to create a dramatic scene in the film.
Users wrote, “Is this a stupid joke? Meghan Markle ‘dies’ after a car accident early in the new movie”, “It’s in bad taste. I don’t believe they can do this!”, “Tasteless and disgusting.”
Note that in June, Lifetime released a short trailer for the upcoming film. In the video, Harry tells his wife: “I see that you are literally being poisoned to death and I can’t stop it.” Then in the trailer, Meghan states: “I’m a strong person who does everything right.” This short clip includes the line, “Not all fairy tales have a perfect ending.”
The film is set to premiere on September 6. This isn’t the first time Harry and Meghan’s life has been reimagined for a movie. Previously, “Harry and Meghan: A Royal Love Story” (2018) and “Harry and Meghan: Becoming a Royal Couple” (2019) were released.
