Prince Harry has also admitted to watching the series. He even shared that it was interesting to him because the story does not claim to be completely reliable, but rather embellished – the fruit of artistic creativity and good imagination – as befits the film industry.

The effect of the death of Elizabeth II
But there is also truth in the series, of course, and it cannot be otherwise. It tells about the British royal family. As we’ve probably already guessed, the series in question is The Crown, which premiered on Netflix back in 2016.
Since then, many viewers and journalists have wondered whether Queen Elizabeth II’s family actually watched the episodes. Even Oprah Winfrey, one of the most popular television personalities in the world, asked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in an interview if they had seen The Crown. Then the two pretend that they actually watched it.
A more interesting admission, however, was made by George Jobson, a royal aide considered one of Britain’s leading royal commentators. According to him, Elizabeth II herself watched The Crown – usually on Sundays. This curious information was given to him not by anyone, but by Prince Philip – the late husband of the Queen. He even tried to convince her to stop watching the series because he thought the plot would annoy her, Entertainment Weekly reported.
For The Crown production, we know that she has always treated the royal family with respect, although they have had arguments and misunderstandings with its representatives before. The sixth season of the series is currently being filmed, with the work process on hold for the time being due to the death of the Queen. As a mark of respect to Elizabeth II, the entire crew of The Crown is on a short break.

However, viewers have yet to watch the fifth season, which premieres soon. From November we will be able to watch it on Netflix – we just have to find out from which date exactly.
