29 Hilarious Thoughts People Had About Lifetime’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Movie

Celebrity Gists, News

At long last, Lifetime blessed us all with Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle movie none of us needed but desperately wanted. The film, which premiered on Sunday, clocks in at two and a half hours, which means there’s plenty of time to include the most important aspects of the pair’s lives: a run-in with a lion that may or may not harbor the spirit of the late Princess Diana, an ill-fated Halloween party, some cheap shots at Prince William’s hair (or lack thereof), and a picture-perfect re-creation of the real-life couple’s stunning engagement photos.

A Royal Romance could not have cast a better Harry and Meghan, played by Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley (especially Fitz-Henley, who will have you doing double takes for all 120 minutes), while the same can’t exactly be said of the rest of the actors on board (*cough* Prince William *cough*). Still, the fictional version of their love story will make you laugh, tear up, potentially fall asleep (it’s two and a half hours), and get even more excited for the big royal wedding than you thought possible.

Since we still have a few days to go until that happens, see what Twitter thought of Lifetime’s latest ahead.

MEGHAN Markle is related to Jack the Ripper serial killer suspect H.H. Holmes, her family has claimed.

The US actress’ ancestor could be the American medic, who confessed to 27 murders in the 19th century and has been linked to the grisly murders in 1888 London.

Serial killer H.H. Holmes murdered at least nine known victims, targeting his victims in a specialist Factory of Death hotel, and was executed in 1896 – with some theories suggesting he had travelled to the UK to unleash the horrific killings in London’s East End to become Jack the Ripper.

The eighth cousin of Prince Harry’s fiancée lawyer Jeff Mudgett has since claimed the family is related to the notorious killer, telling the Daily Star: “We did a study with the FBI and CIA and Scotland Yard regarding handwriting analysis.

“It turns out he was Jack the Ripper. This means Meghan is related to Jack the Ripper.

“I don’t think the Queen knows. I am not proud he is my ancestor. Meghan won’t be either.”

While Holmes was confirmed to have killed nine people at the time of his death, there have been suggestions that his body count could have totalled more than 200.

It comes as Meghan Markle readies herself to walk down the aisle to marry Prince Harry this weekend. 

Holmes’ crimes saw him dubbed America’s first serial killer, with his crimes inspiring Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City.

Author Erik Larson told The Sun: “Holmes was a complete psychopath, utterly lacking a moral core.

WHO WAS HE? Serial killer H.H. Holmes

Herman Webster Mudgett was born in May, 1861 – going on to become one of America’s first known serial killers.

As a young man, Herman grew up in a small New Hampshire town, becoming fascinated with taking apart local dogs and rabbits, it has been claimed.

He then enrolled in medical school, allegedly taking out life insurance policies on fictional people that he had created and listed himself as a beneficiary.

Mudgett later changed his name ot Henry Howard Holmes, moving to Chicago.

It was there that he built a property which was dubbed the “Castle” by locals.

The building allegedly included a labyrinth of corridors, trapdoors and horrors, with Holmes gonig on to seduce women, have them list him on their life insurance, then murder them.

He was ultimately put on trial for the murder of his accomplice Benjamin Pitezel, confessing to killing 27 people during the police investigation.

However, the true number of his victims may never be known, with the body count potentially as high as 200.

It has previously been claimed that Holmes travelled to the UK at one point in his life, unleashing the Jack the Ripper murders.

“He would just as soon kill you as buy you a drink. He had zero sense of right and wrong.

“He sought stimulation in manipulation, and was utterly charming in ways that were unfamiliar to women at the time — and thus very compelling.”

Warped Dr Holmes, who was dubbed the Beast of Chicago, was born Herman Webster Mudgett to a rich family in Gilmanton, New Hampshire, in May 1861.

He studied medicine at the University of Michigan, where he stole corpses to perform experiments on and he also started making false insurance claims.

His killing rampage began after he moved to Chicago in 1886, changed his named to Henry H Holmes and started to construct a three-storey hotel designed to trap and kill his guests.

The ‘Instrument of Consent’

(CNN) — An image of Queen Elizabeth II’s elaborate notice of consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was released Saturday.

Markle and the prince plan to marry next Saturday in St. George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, about 20 miles (32 km) west of central London.

Known as the “Instrument of Consent,” the document in which the Queen officially recognizes the marriage is “hand-written and illuminated on vellum by one of a panel of scrivener artists retained by the Crown Office,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The notice’s intricate design includes a red dragon, the heraldic symbol of Wales, and the floral emblems for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland: the rose, thistle and shamrock. It also includes two golden poppies, the official flower of Markle’s home state of California.

“The Instrument of Consent is sealed with the Great Seal of the Realm, which is attached to the foot of the document by woven cords sealed within the Great Seal itself,” according to the statement.

“The Queen’s signature, ‘Elizabeth R,’ can be seen at the top right of the document, which will be presented to Prince Harry and Ms. Markle after the wedding.”

Elizabeth formally gave her consent to the marriage at a meeting of the Privy Council on March 14.

The document reads: “NOW KNOW YE that We have consented and do by these Presents signify Our Consent to the contracting of Matrimony between Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle.”

The letters KCVO refer to the knighthood given to Harry by the Queen and stand for Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.

The wedding is scheduled to take place in the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and an official residence of the Queen, who spends most of her weekends there.

After the wedding, the couple plans to leave Windsor Castle in a carriage for a roughly two-mile procession, traveling along the High Street through the town of Windsor before returning to the castle by the Long Walk, according to the Palace.

The couple and guests will later attend a reception hosted by the Queen at St. George’s Hall in the castle grounds, bringing the public aspects of the day to a close.

Windsor Prepares To Cash In On Royal Wedding Extravaganza Of Prince Harry And Meghan Markle

Windsor Prepares To Cash In On Royal Wedding Extravaganza Of Prince Harry And Meghan Markle
Comments Offon Windsor Prepares To Cash In On Royal Wedding Extravaganza Of Prince Harry And Meghan Markle
Windsor, United Kingdom: From biscuits to beer and traditional mugs, businesses and Windsor residents are making the most of royal wedding fever with one month to go to the nuptials of Britain’s Prince Harry.Within hours of Harry’s proposal to Meghan Markle being announced in November 2017, online store Jewlr.com had created “The Duchess” replica engagement ring.Excitement over the white coat Markle wore following the engagement prompted the website of its designer, Canadian brand Line, to crash.

Seven years since the last high-profile royal nuptials — the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton — Britain has raced to prepare for the national event.

An official royal wedding collection of commemorative china was promptly launched, using 250-year-old methods and modern-day prices.A coffee cup costs £25 ($35, 29 euros), while the price of a plate has been set at £49 and a tube of shortbread biscuits costs £5.95.

The line has been created by the Royal Collection Trust, which manages the royal art collection and the contents of the various palaces.

Unusual memorabilia

But royal wedding memorabilia has extended far beyond the official souvenirs.

A brewery in the town of Windsor, where the couple will wed on May 19, has concocted a regal-themed brew for the occasion.

The “Harry & Meghan’s Windsor Knot” pale ale combines British and American hops, barley grown on the Royal Farms adjoining Windsor Castle — and a finishing touch of champagne yeast.

Meanwhile, “Crown Jewels Heritage Condoms” have hit the market at £10 for a box of four.

Described as being “fit for a prince”, the novelty contraceptives are sold in a souvenir box featuring an image of the happy couple.

As the box is opened, the British and American national anthems ring out, according to an online advert.

Between the memorabilia, souvenir magazines and fashion items, royal enthusiasts are also expected to spend more on food and drinks as pubs have been granted late closures over the wedding weekend.

The combined boost to the economy has been estimated at 139 million euros, $171 million by the Centre for Retail Research.

The royal wedding could overall bring more than £1 billion to the UK this year, according to consultancy firm Brand Finance, including £300 million in tourism.

The ‘Meghan Effect’

Foreign visitors flocked to the UK in April 2011, when Prince William married Kate, with numbers jumping by 350,000 year-on-year.

A weakened pound coupled with “an incredible media interest” in the upcoming nuptials will result in even higher visitor figures next month, Brand Finance said.

Police are preparing for more than 100,000 people to visit Windsor, around 30 kilometres west of London, for the wedding day.

Locals are ready for the windfall, charging tourists and global TV stations sky-high prices to stay in the town.

Weeks ahead of the celebration, one house in the town centre — advertised as “ideal for the royal wedding” — is charging £3,500 per night.

An apartment which is a “50-second walk from the castle” can be rented for the night for £2,100.

But the financial benefits are expected to reach well beyond the wedding day, thanks to the “Meghan Effect” of fans paying particular attention to her fashion choices.

“Now, as she becomes a member of the royal family, that effect on brands is likely to grow even more,” said Brand Finance, predicting her allegiances will switch to UK designers.

“It can be expected that, supported by her association with ‘Brand Monarchy’, she will become a powerful ambassador for British brands, especially in her native United States.”
