Peter Morgan, the creator and showrunner of "The Crown," has made it clear that he isn't interested in depicting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's love story on the Netflix historical drama, but he's making a huge mistake.
"The Meghan and Harry story is nowhere near over yet," he told Town & Country in October, adding, "And I'm happy that I'm never going to write it."
The 57-year-old British playwright and screenwriter holds himself to a "20-year rule" that keeps him from bringing events from the past two decades onto the screen, he told The Hollywood Reporter in June. In his opinion, 20 years is just "enough time and enough distance" to understand the full scope of an event and adapt it.
In accordance with this rule, Morgan intends to wrap the show's sixth and final season in the early 2000s, more than a decade before Markle and Harry met on their blind date.
