Jared Harris from 'The Crown' Reveals Whether the Show Will Cover Harry & Meghan's Lives
On Wednesday, February 5, 2020, actor Jared Harris attended the Los Angeles Art Show opening night gala. There he opened up about the possibility of seeing Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s lives on “The Crown.”
Many fans of “The Crown” are probably very curious to know if Prince Harry, 35, and his wife Duchess Meghan, 38, will ever feature on the series. Well, Harris, who plays King George VI on the show said:
“It’s not gonna go that far. No, I asked. [Creator] Peter [Morgan] said he’s not going that far.”
Harry & Meghan won’t feature on the series
The actor reiterated stating: “It was never gonna go this far though.” The Royal couple recently made news at the beginning of the year when they announced that they would be stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family.
Their decision will also see them live more independent lives, and that includes financially. Harris addressed this move noting that their decision was probably based on what happened to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did - and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images
