You’d think that Kensington Palace wouldn’t have time to worry over things that don’t directly relate to the royal wedding, but you’d be wrong. According to Menhaj Huda, director of the upcoming Lifetime movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, Queen Elizabeth’s press office is very concerned with the movie’s sex scene, which was teased in the trailer.
Huda spoke to Vanity Fair, and said that he knows of this information because his wife’s best friend has been dating the press secretary of the palace. Which sounds very legit.
Producers and writers of the movie have also said that the royal house is overtly invested in the film, stating that it’s silly for them to worry about the contents of it because “people have sex,” and that’s okay. Scarlett Lacey, co-screenwriter of the movie, said that Kensington Palace is “definitely aware of the film.”
Lacey knows a bit about royals, being the daughter of Robert Lacey, who is the official historical adviser of Netflix’s “The Crown” and is also a biographer of Queen Elizabeth. She claims that she admires the royal couple and that the writers wanted to be really truthful regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s story.
We used our imaginations in places, but there was so much available, from Meghan’s own words. There were so many things we knew to be true, if not in words, then in spirit.”
Lacey was a writer and story editor for “The Royals”, the E! Entertainment show about the fictitious British royal family. Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance will air Sunday, May 13.
