Viewers have absolutely lost it on social media after the ‘cringeworthy’ new trailer for Lifetime movie Harry & Meghan: Escaping The Palace was revealed.
The new clip for the controversial TV movie about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sees the pair plan their exit from the Royal Family, and it’s really something.
It comes after a first-look photo of the pair done up as the royal couple was revealed earlier this year, leaving a lot of people online unimpressed – with some claiming they look nothing like the real Duke and Duchess.
The trailer is just as divisive, seeing Sydney Morton and Jordan Dean step into the roles of Meghan and Harry.
The accents are a pretty good likeness, we have to admit, but that’s about it.
Harry consoles Meghan and discuss her treatment at the hands of the press, saying: ‘I see you literally being hounded to death and I’m helpless to stop it.’

Meghan replies: ‘I am the person who is strong and gets things right. I can’t lose you.’
Fans were left baffled by the footage, with some left wondering if the trailer was in fact a joke.
‘Oh my goodness… I can’t stop laughing. I thought this was a joke, then realized it is actually a movie…which made me laugh even more…’ one said.
‘Omg I can’t stop cringing. That’s got to be the biggest cringe fest since Galloway was a cat on big brother,’ another added.
Say what you like about the trailer, personally we reckon the new movie looks like an absolute must-watch.
The clip focuses on their lives in the Royal Family, and shows the pair recreating the tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview, which saw Meghan claim that family members had had ‘conversations with Harry about how dark [their son Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born’.
Actress Sydney previously dubbed the experience of filming the Lifetime movie a ‘wild ride’ after the backlash over the casting.
The full logline teases: ‘Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace reveals what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie.
Harry & Meghan: Escaping The Palace has yet to receive a release date.
