Fans have been waiting for the appearance of Princess Diana in the critically acclaimed The Crown. However, it looks like the late Princess of Wales will still not be seen in The Crown Season 2, thus viewers of the show are now predicting when they will witness her storyline.
The first season of the biopic drama covered the story of Queen Elizabeth II's (Claire Foy) younger years from 1947 to 1955. Estimating the decades of every season, some believe that Princess Diana's storyline will be explored in the show's third and fourth chapters, the time when Prince Charles and his late wife met in 1977, according to Vanity Fair.
However, the series creator Peter Morgan told People that Princess Diana's storyline will come in The Crown sooner than expected. In fact, it will be revealed in the show's end of third season while she will be one of the main stars in the fourth and fifth chapters.
Moreover, as the television series has to cope with the time jump, Morgan also disclosed that there would be a recast. The major roles would be replaced by the older actors to justify the portrayal of the aged Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and more.
He also unveiled his plans to give a different take to Prince Charles character to be sympathetic from his usual snub image. Aside from the Queen's eldest son, The Crown is also going to explore Prince Philip's back story.
"We start to focus on Charles as a young boy and his education, and on Philip and his back story," Morgan explained. The show's executive producer Suzanne Mackie, on the other hand, teased that The Crown Season 2 will expose more of Philip's childhood and upbringing that shaped him as a man, a father and a Prince. The show is set to be released on Netflix in 2017.
