  5. Suzanne Mackie:

    To be honest, whatever the life of The Crown is after where we are now, I doubt well ever go as far into the present day, i think well probably ... we dont travel into the present day. The series currently takes place between 1964 and 1977 and portrays the life of the royal family from the time when the queen was crowned. Harry and Meghan announced on Jan. 8 that they would take a 'step back' as senior members of the royal family and instead work independently, splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America, specifically Canada. (Getty) The shows creator, Peter Morgan, also echoed Mackies sentiment in 2018, telling Entertainment Weekly that Markles likeness was unlikely to be featured in the series simply because its too close to the moment.
