The Crown has proven to be one of the most successful series for Netflix over the years, charting the history of the British Royal Family with just a sprinkling of TV drama.
With four series having aired so far and just six being made in total, reports have begun circulating about where the show could close. Thanks to a report from The Sun, we now know where the story will be bookended, ending with the explosive Royal Wedding between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
“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,” the report reads. Adding, “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”.
This storyline for season five of the show, due to air in November, will cover the turmoil of Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage as well as the tragic death of the ‘People’s Princess’ in 1997. Season four of The Crown proved to be one of the show’s most popular series, with the introduction of Emma Corrin as Princess Diana magnetising viewers to the streaming service.
Starring Corrin alongside the likes of Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Phillips, Gillian Anderson, The Crown continues to obsess fans worldwide to this day.
