On Friday it was revealed that the movie will reportedly open with a dream sequence involving Meghan Markle dying in a violent car accident - just days after the 24th anniversary of Princess Diana's tragic death in a violent car accident in Paris.

According to the film’s synopsis, as well as sources who have seen some of the film, the flipped car is then surrounded by photographers as a desperate and scared Prince Harry fights his way through the group before pulling the car door open. An injured Meghan then pleads with Harry to save her, but then the whole sequence is ultimately revealed to be a nightmare as Harry awakes and is comforted to see his wife and their son Archie both alive and safe.

“Because she is a living breathing person and I’m playing her pretty much right now in her life, I definitely felt a responsibility to be respectful and very grounded and make her a three-dimensional person and not portray her as this tabloid cartoon,” Sydney Morton, the actress playing Meghan, told the outlet.
