MEGHAN Markle lays dying in car crash wreckage in an outrageous new movie inspired by Princess Diana’s death.
In shocking and insensitive scenes, the actress playing the 40-year-old Duchess is seen lying in the wreckage of an overturned car, surrounded by photographers.
But the crash is just a nightmare and Harry wakes up and is comforted to see wife Meghan and baby Archie.
The sickening scenes mirror the real-life tragedy of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997.
The footage is part of the third Lifetime TV movie; Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, and sees British actor Jordan Dean and American actress Sydney Morton take over the roles of Harry and Meghan.
The drama – which will be broadcast in the US on Monday – will explore the “real details” behind the decision that eventually drove the couple to leave their royal life behind.
The two previous films were Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance and Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.
The trailer has left Royal fans horrified, with one writing on Twitter: “Harry & Meghan, escaping the palace? I think Diana would be appalled.”
Another added: “Harry and meghan escaping the palace… wtf is that.”
A third tweeted: “WHY IS LIFETIME MAKING A THRILLER/HORROR MOVIE ABT MEGHAN AND HARRY ESCAPING THE PALACE.”
Speaking about her new role, actress Sydney said: “I didn’t hesitate much. Just knowing that this is so topical, current and had so much energy around it, I really didn’t.
“I find it fascinating, and I thought it would be an interesting challenge. But because they’re living people, this is their word.
“We’re depicting not only their lives but some traumatic moments in them, and we wanted to handle it with a lot of care, empathy and respect.
“It’s not like decades have passed for everyone to have processed it all. We’re all still kind of living through it.”
Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will air on Monday, September 6 at 8 p.m on Lifetime.
