Revealed: Why 'The Crown' Will Never Cover Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's 'Megxit'
The Netflix hit's creator, Peter Morgan, revealed that Meghan Markle will never be featured in the drama, which covers the inner workings and melodrama of the British royal family.
“The Meghan and Harry story is nowhere near over yet,” Morgan told Town & Country, “and I’m happy that I’m never going to write it.”
Season 5 of The Crown was initially set to be its last, but Morgan eventually expanded to six seasons in order to do justice to the relationships between Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, as well as Prince Charles' current wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles.
Morgan explained that because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s story is still unfolding, making it into a narrative would prove difficult—and it would also seem almost redundant since the couple are constantly in the press.
There've been wives that have been married into the Royal family that have felt unwelcome and that they don't fit in. So there are plenty of stories to tell without telling the story of Harry and Meghan."
