Prince Harry and his bride-to-be Meghan Markle are set to have their love story turned into a TV movie for American audiences.

Lifetime network bosses have unveiled plans for "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story," which will chronicle the couple's relationship from its first meeting in May 2016, in Toronto, where Los Angeles-born actress Markle filmed her legal drama series "Suits," to the big engagement announcement in November.

Casting details and a projected premiere date have yet to be revealed, but fittingly, Menhaj Huda, who has directed fictional drama series "The Royals," will direct "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story."

Prince Harry and Markle are set to tie the knot at Windsor Castle, England, on May 19.

It's not the first real-life royal romance to get the small screen treatment -- Harry's brother Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, were also the subjects of a 2011 Lifetime film, called "William & Kate: The Movie."
