There are plans to show Princess Diana and Prince Charles in Netflix’s “The Crown,” but not anytime soon

Princess Diana
didn’t take long for everyone to become obsessed with Netflix’s The Crown after it was released in early November. The drama, which chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to mid-1950s, is everything we love in a binge-worthy series. Plus, it includes real-life events of the fascinating Royal Family. We were hooked from the very first episode. via GIPHY But, let’s be honest, many of us were wondering when The Crown would focus on complicated relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Their relationship is more known to our age group than the history of the Queen. And people love a good marital drama. But with the timeframe of the first season, people weren’t sure if or how it would fit into the larger storyline. via GIPHY Well, we have some good news

What happens when the Queen dies? From Queen Elizabeth’s funeral to Charles’ coronation AS the Queen continues to battle a heavy cold, Britons are wond ering what will happen when she eventually dies. The Queen has been fighting to shake off the cold for almost a fortnight and missed Christmas and New Year’s Day church services at Sandringham.

Princess Diana's death 20 years on: William and Harry's plans to remember their mother Princess Diana will be remembered 20 years after her death without a big fancy event, Prince William and Prince Harry have determined.

Prince Harry and William have ruled out a fundraising concert like that at Wembley in 2007. Instead the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry have decided that any tributes will not be taken over by the royal family and that the anniversary will be used to highlight their mother's work in fighting HIV and Aids.

AFTER the Queen’s illness sparked fears for her wellbeing, many are wondering whether Prince Charles or Prince William will become king when the Queen dies.
