With six weeks to go before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say "I do", it's only fitting that the trailer for their new Lifetime movie has dropped! Parisa Fitz-Henley and Murray Fraser star as the loved-up couple in Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, while Burgess Abernethy and Laura Mitchell take on the roles of Prince William and Kate. The trailer has ramped up excitement among royal fans, because it's just too cute!

At the start, Harry is heard telling his brother and sister-in-law: "What am I supposed to do? Never have fun?" Kate replies: "Peter Pan can't stay in Neverland forever and... marriage isn't so bad." Other highlights of the trailer show Harry and Meghan meeting for dinner for their first date. "I'm Meghan," says the actress. "Harry," the Prince responds, clearly blown away by her beauty. "You look lovely."

In the 30-second trailer, Kate is also seen asking Harry: "She's American, she's divorced. Are you ready for this?" An emotional Harry replies: "She makes me happy, so to hell with tradition!" Fans also catch a glimpse of Harry and Meghan's romantic holiday to Botswana, where they make friends with a giraffe, and the all-important moment when the Prince gets down on one knee and pops the question.

Lifetime previously released a 20-second trailer in March, showing the couple getting to know each other. "Tell me something real," Meghan says at the start of the clip. "I don't need my life to be this perfect royal picture," says Harry. "I just need you."

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance will premiere on Lifetime on 13 May, just six days before the couple marry in real life. The Prince and the former Suits actress will say "I do" at St George's Chapel in Windsor on Saturday 19 May. Guests will then be invited to a lunchtime reception at St George's Hall, hosted by the Queen. Later that evening, the bride and groom will be joined by 200 guests at a more exclusive reception at Frogmore House, this time hosted by Prince Charles.
