Jordan Dean plays Harry Windsor

Jordan Dean is a Broadway star and composer. He was in the original cast of 'American Psycho' as Luis Carruthers in 2016 and played a number of roles on the stage. In TV, he has made some appearances in 'Law and Order', 'Z: The Beginning of Everything', and 'High Maintenance'. This controversial movie will certainly push him into the spotlight.

The resemblance is uncanny

Dressed as Harry, Duke of Sussex, Jordan Dean looks a replica of the Prince. With a perfect hairstyle recreation and a suit that many have seen Harry wearing in public, he is the Queen's grandson's doppelgänger.

Reconstruction of the Oprah interview

The infamous Oprah interview, which rocked the royal family, is featured in the movie. One of the most famous TV programmes of the past years, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, is central to the Lifetime movie and has been reconstructed to the smallest detail.

Who talked about Archie's skin colour?

Meghan said in the Oprah interview that "in the months when I was pregnant… [there were] concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born." The couple never disclosed who made these remarks about Archie's skin colour.

The family under fire

Although the couple never mentioned any names in the Oprah interview, it was clear that the people particularly under fire were Harry's brother, William; sister-in law, Kate; and his father, Charles. Harry disclosed that there was such a deep rift between him and Charles, that he said his father at one point "stopped taking my calls."

The Duchesses

And then there's the backstory between the two Duchesses - Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. Meghan put Kate in the firing line in the interview when she disclosed that her sister-in-law 'made her cry' - which was stark contrast to the news at the time of the incident, which reported it was, in fact, the other way around.

Not the best reviews but a must for the fans

The movie premiered on Lifetime Canada in September and is now available on Amazon Prime for streaming. It hasn't had the best reviews, receiving a poor 2.5/10 on IMDB, but for royalty lovers it is still a must-watch!
