The creator of Netflix royal drama The Crown has compared the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana to multiple Brexits and Covid-19 pandemics combined.

In the discussion of the upcoming fourth season, Morgan delivered his dramatic verdict on the doomed marriage between the heir to the British throne and his younger charismatic bride, played in the series by newcomer Emma Corrin.

Peter said: "Charles and Diana’s marriage, it was three Brexits and three Covids wrapped into one, wasn't it?

"Everybody is defined in some shape or form in terms of their reaction to the events that [the royal family] inflicted upon us. And at the heart of all that was this marriage."

However, the writer has noted the tragedy of the marriage between Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

He added: "I think what’s so sad about it is they were such a dream team. It could have been so fantastic."

In addition, Morgan also compared the adulterous love story between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles to the iconic monarch Henry VIII and his equally famous second wife, Anne Boleyn.

Henry broke from the Roman Catholic Church to discard his first wife Catherine of Aragon so he could marry Anne and make her his queen.

Morgan opined: "Charles’s campaign to make Camilla queen is as passionate and as committed and as ruthless, in many ways, as was Henry VIII’s campaign to make Anne Boleyn his queen."

The third season already showed the blossoming romance between Charles and a young Camilla Shand (Emerald Fennell), but this was broken apart by Charles' family and her marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles (Andrew Buchanan).

The fourth run will tackle the love triangle between Charles, Diana and Camilla, whilst also introducing us to Gillian Anderson as controversial prime minister Margaret Thatcher as she comes face to face with Olivia Colman's Queen Elizabeth II.

Meanwhile, Morgan has already cast his third set of actors to play the leading royals in the show's fifth and sixth seasons.

Who will take over from Corrin in the fifth season of The Crown?

Imelda Staunton will take on the role of The Queen, while Lesley Manville will take over from Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon.

It was officially announced yesterday that Game of Thrones star Jonathan Pryce has been cast as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

It is unknown as of yet who will play Prince Charles and Diana in the fifth season.

The Crown season 4 will be released on Netflix later this year.
