You might be able to spot Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in Vancouver this week — albeit not the real ones.
A Lifetime movie called Harry and Meghan: Escaping the Palace will explore the popular pair's split from the British royal family, according to Deadline. The film stars Jordan Dean (The Beginning of Everything, The Punisher) and Sydney Morton (The Intern, She’s Gotta Have It) in the lead roles.
The movie is the third instalment in the Lifetime film franchise about the royal couple, but different actors portrayed the leading roles in the first two films.
On June 2, a local man tweeted photos and videos of the cast and crew filming on Stanley Park's Third Beach. One of his images is a note signed by "Third Beach staff" that reads: "Dear Meghan and Harry, We will open at 1 p.m. today. Until then, enjoy the beach!"
