On the other hand, Teddy Hawley, 7, will play his younger brother Prince Harry. Recently a source teased that Netflix was looking for red-haired actors to play the role to make everything real. But, The Sun teased that the bosses perhaps dye the actor’s head to resemble Prince Harry.

On Tuesday, Claudia was also spotted filming at Scotland’s Covesea Lighthouse opposite Imelda. As of now, filming is currently underway following the strict COVID-protocol.
What Will Happen Next?
While the plot details for the fifth season remain scarce, it is presumed to explore Royal Family’s history from the 1990s to the 2003s. But, which specific moment it could explore is unclear. Still, we can expect that some of the bitter moments will cover. Including the Queen’s accession speech on her 40th anniversary in 1992. She called the year an “Annus Horriblis” referring to the breakdown of her three children’s marriages.
Explore Princess Diana’s True Story
Andrew Morton teased in an interview that season 5 will explore the drama behind his epic Princess Diana biography. In 1992, Andrew published a groundbreaking memoir in which Diana also participated. She secretly recorded her tape, which Andrew used to publish her story later. Further, as per the reports, the fifth season would also feature Princess Diana’s infamous 1995 Panorama interview. There she referred to her marriage as a bit crowded.
The Crown Season 5: When To Expect?
Deadline teased earlier this year that the historical drama would take a brief break. But, with the filming is underway, the chances of new episodes returning by the end of 2021 are very few. Thus possibly, The Crown Season 5 will air till the summer of 2022. If any complications won’t arrive due to the ongoing pandemic. So, don’t miss it.
