"Chronicling the courtship and love story between a beloved prince and his new fiancée, the film will examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan's life as a divorced American actress," a news release said.

The British royal and former Suits star announced their engagement in November. The following month, they set a wedding date of May 19.
