A few days after her death queen elizabeth ii and in the mourning period in Britain, many began to wonder how many well-kept secrets of the monarch’s personal life could emerge.
One of them has already come to light and that is that the Queen watched his popular series Netflix “The Crown” directed by Peter Morgan.
Appearing during the US ABC telecast of the funeral, royal correspondent George Jobson – one of the best-known royal commentators – said the Queen used to watch the show on Sundays.
Since “The Crown” premiered in 2016, audiences and journalists have often discussed the possibility of the royal family watching the show. In fact, the popular American presenter Oprah Winfrey asked a relevant question to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during the famous interview from 2021.
But according to Jobson, Elizabeth II regularly watched the show, at least in the early seasons when the Queen was played by Claire Foy. He also said that Prince Philip had confided in him that he tried to discourage his wife from watching the show because he knew it would upset her.
In February 2021, Harry admitted to British presenter James Corden that he has seen ‘The Crown’. “I’m much more comfortable watching the series than reading stories that are written in the media about Meghan or me…they don’t pretend to be news, they’re fiction,” Harry said. “But there are also real facts. Of course it’s not accurate, but…it presents an idea of the palace lifestyle, the pressure to put family, duty and service above all else.” In addition, Harry stated that he would like to see Damian Lewis play him when he is older.
The sixth season of the show, which took a hiatus after Elizabeth’s death as a mark of respect for the queen, is being filmed during this time period. The fifth season is expected to premiere in November, while an official release date has not yet been announced.
