SHAMELESS filmmakers shooting a new Harry and Meghan movie have recreated the 1997 car crash which killed Princess Diana.
Filming of Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace has been taking place in Vancouver, Canada.

The made-for-TV production is based on The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s exit from the Royal Family.
In shockingly bad taste, the film set features a recreation of the Paris accident in 1997, which killed the Princess of Wales when she was 36.
Diana’s boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed, 42, and their driver, Henri Paul, 41, were also killed in the crash, which shocked the world.
Images from production of the film show an overturned car in a tunnel depicting the Mercedes which crashed in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel.
NEW HARRY AND MEGHAN FILM
The actors who are playing Harry and Meghan were also pictured at a different location heading to their trailers.
The TV movie is the third in a trilogy on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by Lifetime.
It follows two previous TV movies produced by the US cable TV channel chronically the royal couple’s lives.
Harry, 36, is likely to return to the UK for the unveiling of a statue of his mother on July 1.

Following Lord Dyson’s damning report on Martin Bashir’s 1995 Diana interview, Harry slammed a “culture of exploitation and unethical practices” around his mother which “ultimately took her life”.
In a new documentary, he revealed the torment of attending his mother’s funeral – and how he is still haunted by “the sound of the horses’ hooves going along the Mall”.
Last week, Meghan, 39, gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, named in tribute to the Queen and the Princess of Wales.
The actors playing Harry and Meghan in the film trilogy were snapped for the first time last month.
Photos taken from a recent shoot showed Broadway actor Jordan Dean and stage actress Sydney Morton dressed in outfits similar to those the Sussexes wore during their 2019 tour of Africa.
The film’s makers say it will show viewers “what really happened inside the Palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie”.
Two previous films, 2018’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance and 2019’s Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, were focused on the early days of their relationship and their wedding respectively.
Actors will also play Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and the Queen.
In March, it was reported that a Hollywood producer hired as the new boss of Harry and Megha’s production company owns the rights to a controversial conspiracy movie about Princess Diana.
Harry and Meghan have made a series of bombshell revelations and allegations about royal life this year.

Meghan told how her mental health had suffered during her time as a working royal – and she felt suicidal while pregnant with Archie.
Meanwhile, Harry said his dad and brother were “trapped” in the Royal firm.
It was also claimed a member of the Royal Family had probed the duke about his unborn son and what colour his skin would be.
