The Crown may be one of Netflix's most buzzworthy original offerings, but there's one person who doesn't plan on watching the historical drama. While meeting with Prince William, The Crown star Olivia Colman asked the heir to the throne if he was a fan. Unsurprisingly, the Duke of Cambridge revealed he hasn't added the show based on his family to his Netflix queue.
Colman, who is taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the third and fourth seasons of The Crown, spoke about her encounter with Prince William during an appearance on the Graham Norton Show. She called the royal “very charming and very lovely" despite the fact that he isn't a fan of her show.
“He asked what I was doing at the moment before he quickly added, ‘Actually, I know what you’re doing,’” Colman explained. “I was so excited and asked, ‘Have you watched it?’ His answer was a firm, ‘No.’”
Though we all love to watch behind-the-scenes royal drama, it could be pretty awkward if the show was based on your IRL family members. Season three would likely be even more awkward for William, as it will introduce his mother, Princess Diana, for the first the time and address his parents tumultuous relationship.
Despite the fact that Prince William is "firmly" not watching The Crown, everybody else can start streaming season three on November 17. Will you be tuning in?
