Before she lit a fire in Prince Harry’s heart, Meghan Markle was setting off sparks of a different kind in the Hallmark Channel movie When Sparks Fly. The Fourth of July-themed romance from 2014 stars the Duchess of Sussex as a journalist who returns to her hometown and reconnects with her first love. Naturally, it’s the perfect flick for royal fans to stream this Independence Day.
What is ‘What Sparks Fly’ about?
In When Sparks Fly, Meghan plays Amy Peterson, a journalist at a Chicago newspaper. After learning that her family is in the fireworks business, her editor sends her back home to write a feature on her parents and her hometown’s elaborate Fourth of July celebration.
Amy’s return visit just happens to coincide with her childhood best friend Sammie’s (Kristina Pesic) wedding. Sammie’s an Independence Day enthusiast (her dress is flag-themed) and she wants Amy to help plan her red, white, and blue celebration. Amy is happy to lend a hand, but things are a little awkward, because Sammie is marrying Hank (Christopher Jacot), Amy’s first love. Plus, things aren’t going so well with Amy’s big-city boyfriend Phil (Lochlyn Munro).
Not only does Amy have to deal with her ex marrying her…
