During an interview with "The Late Late Show" host James Corden, Prince Harry shared some insight into how he feels about the Netflix series "The Crown" that centers around portraying an inside look at royal life. 

Whilst Prince Harry revealed that he has a greater appreciation for the fictional nature of the miniseries that doesn't claim to portray facts as in the case of the media, Prince Harry also shared who he thought would be fitting to play him.

PUT ON THE SPOT

Corden didn't shy away from asking Prince Harry all the questions that were on fans' minds, including the royal's thoughts surrounding "The Crown." When asked what he thought about the show, Prince Harry answered

“I am way more comfortable with 'The Crown' than I am seeing stories written about my family or my wife. That [The Crown] is obviously fiction, take it how you will."

When asked who he would like to play his part in the miniseries, Prince Harry didn't have to think twice about his chosen actor, saying that Damien Lewis would be chosen to take on the royal's character.

Prince Harry stated that the spotlight that came with being a royal operating under the British media's watchful eye was not good for his mental health, and for the sake of his and his family's health, they needed some distance.

DATING BACK-TO-FRONT

Prince Harry also dished on the beginning days of his relationship with Meghan Markle, sharing what it is like getting to know and dating a British royal. 

The Duke of Sussex revealed that by the second date, he knew that he wanted to be serious with Markle and that it was how comfortable they were with one another that sealed the deal. He elaborated on their dating days, saying

"Everything was done back-to-front with us. Actually, we got to spend an enormous amount of time just the two of us, rather than going to friends' houses."

The preview suggests that 36-year-old Prince Harry decided to stand back from the royal family to avoid going down the same path as his mother, Princess Diana, did as she died at 36, a year after divorcing Prince Charles.  

With the world still zoomed in on Prince Harry and his wife's comings and goings, it may be easier for the family to go about their day-to-day lives without the added pressure of royal responsibilities.
