Time to check in on The Crown, because a lot of new and somewhat juicy information has come to light. While it initially seemed like the show wouldn’t venture too far into current royal events (read: allllll the drama between the Sussexes, the Cambridges, and Prince Charles), things have…changed.
The Sun reports that instead of ending in 2002 (when the Queen lost both her mother and her sister), The Crown will now end in 2005 with the wedding of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. Not only does this obviously means Prince William and Prince Harry will be cast as adults, sources say the door is open to a sequel covering the brothers and their dad.
“It’s a small but significant shift because it’s seen as marking the start of an era which becomes more focussed on Princes William and Harry and their father,” a source says. “The marriage of Charles and Camilla is treated like the end of one turbulent period in the Windsors’ story, and the start of a whole new one.”
Just a few things that have happened since Charles and Camilla’s wedding? Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton, Prince Andrew’s scandal(s), Prince Philip’s death, and Prince Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle and their subsequent departure from the royal family.
And get this: aside from this potential sequel, there are also rumors that the show could develop a prequel focusing on Queen Victoria, which, yes please.
Reminder: season 5 of The Crown drops on Netflix in November, so prepare thyself.
