Yes, you've heard it all! Now it's Harry and Meghan: The Musical!
Editor / December 11 2018
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, comes the bizarre news that Meghan Markle's life story is being made into a musical!
Entertainment Tonight is reporting that the Duchess of Sussex is the subject of an all-singing, all-dancing show called “The Sixth in Line to Be King and I” — a joking reference to the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I. Prince Harry, is currently sixth in line to the British throne.
According to The Telegraph, the mini-musical, which will be just 15 minutes long, is going to be “Rodgers and Hammerstein-inspired” and will be broadcast on New Year’s Day on BBC Radio 4 in the UK.
“The Sixth in Line to Be King and I” will be an “inspired celebration of Meghan Markle’s life to date” and will also “look ahead to what promises to be an exciting 2019 for the happy royal couple as they expect their first child in the spring.”
Kensington Palace have refused to comment over the news, but what could they really say?!
And, of course, this isn’t the first time Meghan’s life has been adapted. The TV movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, which followed Meghan and Harry’s love story and their engagement, was released last May, days ahead of the royal wedding.
