Prince Harry Plans to Stop 'The Crown' From Covering His Life

January 22, 2020

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been making headlines since they stepped down as senior members of the royal family.

Although Harry cannot control how the media portrays him, he is planning to stop Netflix’s royal-inspired series, “The Crown,” from covering his life, according to his biographer and royal correspondent Angela Levin.

Levin told BBC Breakfast that Harry already wasn’t a fan of the series when they chatted for her 2018 book “Harry: Conversations with the Prince.”

“Harry, when I went to interview him at the palace, the first thing he said to me when he shook my hand was, ‘Are you watching 'The Crown?'" she recalled. She admitted she felt “very embarrassed” by the question because she was watching the series.

“He said, ‘I’m going to make sure I stop it before they get to me,'” the author revealed with a chuckle.

Harry may be in luck, however, because show creator Peter Morgan previously told Entertainment Weekly that he planned to end the series before “it reaches the present day.”

The historical drama surrounds Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and stars Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Tobias Menzies.

Following “Megxit,” Netflix expressed interest in working with Harry and the former “Suits” actress on potential projects, PageSix reports.

“Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, for sure,” said the streaming service’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos.

Fans of the series suggested that the couple should take back the narrative and appear as themselves on the series with James Melville adding, “Meghan should troll everyone by playing herself in the final season.”

The series doesn’t seem to have many fans in Buckingham Palace including Prince William.

Apparently, Oscar winner Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Elizabeth II in the show’s upcoming third season, recently asked the Duke of Cambridge if he watches the series. She later told Entertainment Tonight the conversation “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,'" she recounted during an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show.”

She continued, "I was so excited and asked, 'Have you watched it?' His answer was a firm, 'No.'”
