Netflix’s The Crown Ending After Season 5 With Imelda Staunton Confirmed as Final Queen
Sorry, royal fans. The Crown will end in 2003 during its fifth and final season. Just as the royal family was just getting interesting. This comes as a disappointment to fans of the royal family.
Some were hoping that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the royal family would be featured on the show. Not only did the Netflix series find its final Queen Elizabeth II, but it also will end on its fifth season, as reported by The Daily Beast.
The Crown Will End In The Year 2003 During Its Fifth And Final Season
What will the final season feature? Even though the show is ending earlier than expected, the news of the fifth season of The Crown will not take royal fans through the last 20 years or so. However, it does plan to end with some sort of dramatics. After all, 2003 was an iconic era for the royal family. It provided the seeds of the stories that are now circulating in the media. However, the royal family still doesn’t have enough control on the tabloid stories.
2003 was the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. It was also the same year that Kate and William met and started dating during their time at St. Andrew’s University. It was also the time when Prince Charles and Camilla moved in together at Clarence House. The couple made their relationship office two years later. In addition, Prince Harry traveled to Australia on a gap year trip that involved leaving Elton and joining the army. Interestingly enough, Meghan Markle graduated from Northwestern University during that time.
It was also the same time that the Daily Mirror journalist, Ryan Parry, disguised himself and wrote about everything he learned during his stay with the royal family. He revealed that the Queen loves to eat light toast with marmalade. He also wrote that she fed her corgis scones. The Queen hated the report so much that she took legal action against the Mirror, which was later edited by Piers Morgan.

The Crown Is A Show That’s Mostly Focused On The Queen Rather Than The Royal Family
The Crown is a show that’s mostly focused on the Queen rather than the royal family. So, it makes sense that it would end on 2003 since it was the year that the Queen retained control of the family and monarchy. She also celebrated a prolific anniversary of her reign on England. 2003 not only focuses on the 50th anniversary of her coronation, but also the final moments of the old order that’s still in place.
