Prince Charles – Dominic West
Talking about leaving the role of Prince Charles, Josh O’Connor said to Variety: “It’s been two years of my life, cumulatively, making the show. And then the rest of my life has just been talking about it. It’s a strange dynamic; you spend more time talking about your work than you do making it sometimes. And that shows the success of [The Crown]. “I’ve had the best two years ever. But it’s also exciting, the idea that I can go off and talk about other stuff.”
Also, according to the sources, Dominic West’s real-life son Senan West will make his first on-screen acting. He will be acting as a young Prince William in the Crown season 5 and season 6.

My stomach, meanwhile, is doing somersaults.”
The Crown season 5 time period: which year and period will it be covering?
The last season of the Crown We got to see that the royal family was celebrating Christmas 1990. They were mainly facing a lot of issues. Despite the problems, they were smiling for the cameras. To make a note regarding the relationship between Charles and Diana, she was desperate to divorce Charles. Still very much in love with Camilla Parker-Bowles. She also constantly felt alone in the family unit. Her only ally, Prince Philip, warned her about going up against the family.
The last season will also see him cutting his ties with her. There is no official statement regarding what time season 5 will follow up. However, the reports claim that the Crown season 5 will follow 1992. A year referred to by The Queen as the ‘annus horribles, aka the ‘horrible year’, in a speech to mark the 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne. Will we know that during that time, the family saw three divorces? There was also fire through the familial home of Windsor Castle. The Crown’s season 5 episodes are to run through to August 1997. When Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris, France, she was with her boyfriend, millionaire businessman Dodi Fayed.
Some other details:
A Telegraph source stated Diana’s infamous Martin Bashir interview in 1995. She will also feature prominently as her relationship with Charles gets more bitter. However, another source claimed it to be early to state anything clearly. The Martin Bashir interview would be one of the most controversial territories for The Crown to cover. In 2021 an investigation conducted by Lord Dyson concluded that the BBC “fell short of the high standards of integrity and transparency which are its hallmark”. It is during the process of production and Broadcast. In response to Dyson’s investigation, Prince William said, “This Panorama program holds no legitimacy and should never be aired again. It effectively established a false narrative that the BBC and others have commercialised.”
In an interview with The Times, screenwriter, producer, and friend to Princess Diana, Jemima Khan claimed
“In 2019, Peter Morgan asked me to co-write on the fifth series of The Crown, particularly those episodes which concerned Princess Diana’s last years before she died,” Khan said (via Vulture). “After a great deal of thought, having never spoken publicly about any of this before, I decided to contribute.” “We worked together on the outline and scripts from September 2020 until February 2021,” Khan added.
“It was essential to me that the final years of my friend’s life be portrayed accurately and with compassion, as has not always happened in the past. “When our co-writing agreement was not honoured, and when I realised that particular storyline would not necessarily be told as respectfully or compassionately as I had hoped, I requested that all my contributions be removed from the series, and I declined a credit.” Netflix issued a statement replying to the story. “Jemima Khan has been a friend, fan, and a vocal public supporter of The Crown since Season 1. She has been part of a wide network of well-informed and varied sources who have provided extensive background information to our writers and research team – providing context for the drama The Crown. She has never been contracted as a writer on the series.”

There are going to be six seasons and out for the drama. I was always going on the news talking about the Crown season 5 to be the series’s final instalment and how the makers came up with two more episodes that will be a part of 6 of the show to look forward to. Speaking to Broadcast, replying to why the show is not continuing, executive producer Suzanne Mackie said: “Peter has said it very articulately that he can’t write something unless there has been time to gain a proper perspective.
“I think he’s always felt ten years is the minimum amount of time that he can see something in a historical context to allow him to understand it.” She said: “I don’t think he’ll deviate from that. We all know these stories, but what Peter does so brilliantly is get underneath that and understand the landscape in a more nuanced, complex, surprising way.”
