The Crown could be extended for more seasons to show Princes as adults

The Crown was originally meant to finish up before the Prince William and Prince Harry became adults.

However, there are now rumours that the series could be extended to two more seasons.

Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie said the hit series is set to extend for two more seasons after the controversy from Season 4.

The Crown depicted Prince Charles and Princess Diana 's relationship in the latest season, portraying their marriage and Diana's struggle with bulimia.

But Scobie was speaking on Heirpod, last week and the royal contributor indicated that The Crown, originally, would have stopped before the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex became adults.

That may no longer be the case.

"There is already a lot of talk about series 5 and series 6. Season 5 and 6 have been confirmed.'' he said.

''There's even talk about the show would originally stop before William and Harry become adults.

"I have certainly heard rumblings that there is talk within Netflix about the possibility of whether the show could be extended."

Co-host Maggie Rulli replies in disbelief:

"Really? I didn't know that."

Omid continues:

"When you think of how much controversy this current season has created, this is going to be a presence in members of the Royal Family lives for some time.

"I would imagine fighting back source quotes in British newspapers is probably not the way forward."

The controversy also sees Camilla Parker-Bowles portrayed as continuing to have an affair with the Prince of Wales throughout his marriage to Diana.

Historians have pointed out that this is inaccurate.

The fictional scenes stirred a heated debate online among fans since the season was released two weeks ago.
