Prince Harry Wants To Put A 'Stop' To 'The Crown' Before They Cover His Life!

Netflix is rumored to be courting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for potential collaborations, but that doesn’t mean the pair doesn’t have an issue with THAT series.

The Crown has received acclaim over the past three seasons for its drama-filled portrayal of the royal family. The first season of the series starts by taking place in 1947, five years before Queen Elizabeth II‘s reign began, and season 3 ends in 1977. Currently, season 4 is in production and will likely cover about 10 years.

But if Harry has anything to do with it, we may never get to see any parts of his life!

In a new interview with BBC Breakfast, biographer Angela Levin, who previously interviewed the Duke of Sussex for her 2018 book, Harry: Conversations With the Prince, said he brought up the series during their first meeting.

Levin shared:

“Harry, when I went to interview him in the Palace, the first thing he said to me when he shook my hand was, ‘Are you watching The Crown?’ And I hadn’t been at the time, I felt very embarrassed and I got it and he said, ‘I’m going to make sure I stop it before they get to me.'”


Following the current structure of about ten years per season, season 8 would cover 2007-2017, and season 9 would be 2017-2027. From what the 35-year-old reportedly said, it’s unclear if he meant his present-day life as a husband and father or any parts at all.

In case you need a refresher on royal history, Princess Diana and Prince Charles wed in 1981, Prince William was born in 1982, followed by Harry’s birth in 1984. So, if the timing is right, we should be seeing the birth of both boys in season 4 which is set to drop in late 2020.

Many have wondered how the Windsors feel about their portrayals on the series, and we’ve heard conflicting reports so far! Royal expert Katie Nicholl previously revealed to ET that the Sussexes did watch the series during the early days of their relationship. Maybe because it was a good way for Meg to brush up on her future husband’s family??

Nicholl shared with the outlet:

“But what was so lovely was that they just had a very normal courtship. It was all behind the closed doors of the palace or Meghan’s Toronto apartment. But when she came over and stayed with Prince Harry at Notting Cottage, I was told that they loved nothing more than cooking some nice food, catching up on Netflix and watching The Crown, which they apparently watch together.”

Meanwhile, we’ve heard William is NOT a fan. In an interview on The Graham Norton Show in November, Olivia Colman (who stars as Her Majesty in seasons 3 and 4) discussed her uncomfortable interaction with the future monarch:

“It didn’t go very well. I met Prince William at a dinner, and he asked what I was doing at the moment before he quickly added, ‘Actually, I know what you’re doing.’ I was so excited and asked, ‘Have you watched it?’ His answer was a firm, ‘No.’ But he was very charming and very lovely.”

Thoughts on all this, Perezcious TV experts?? Most of what’s gone down in the past few months would make for a great binge watch! Sound OFF (below) in the comments and let us know!!
