  • The film also dramatizes Meghan's growing isolation and sadness in the palace

Lifetime has unveiled the first trailer for “Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace,” the third installment in the network’s movie trilogy about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace” will show the events that led to the royal couple’s decision to step down from their royal duties in 2020. It “explores 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,” the official synopsis for the film read.

The film, which stars “The Punisher’s” Jordan Dean as Prince Harry and “She’s Gotta Have It’s” Sydney Morton as Meghan, will detail “Meghan’s growing isolation and sadness, their disappointment that ‘The Firm’ was not defending them against the press’s attacks and Harry’s fear that history would repeat itself and he would not be able to protect his wife and son from the same forces that may have contributed to his mother’s untimely death,” as per the synopsis.

Other key moments dramatized in the trailer include the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan’s son Archie, their decision to leave England, and Prince Harry’s realization that his wife was “being hounded to death.”

In July 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan resigned from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation to establish their own foundation, Sussex Royal. The following year, the royal couple withdrew from their duties as members of the British Royal Family.

In June, Prince Harry and Meghan, now living in the U.S., sat down for a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which they detailed the events that had made them decide to step down from their senior royal roles, Prince Harry’s strained relationship with his brother and the rest of the royal family, and Meghan’s struggles to get support within The Firm. The Duchess also exposed the racism she had experienced from the British media, and how The Firm did not do anything about it.

“Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace” will premiere on Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
