Prince Harry's involvement with The Crown has finally been discussed by the CEO of Netflix.

Despite the Duke of Sussex's partnership with the streaming giant, Netflix also platforms a royal drama about his family, The Crown.

However, it has never been made apparent until recently as to whether the duke was involved with the creation of the show.

According to Ted Sarandos, the CEO of Netflix, he and Prince Harry never spoke about The Crown, and the prince does not influence the project.

He told Variety: "We keep a wall around this topic when we talk, for obvious reasons."

The creator of The Crown, Peter Morgan, stated earlier this week that he had not read Harry's controversial autobiography Spare.

He clarified that he didn't read the book because he didn't want Harry's "voice" to distort his mental image of the monarchy.

Morgan said: "I've not read a word of it. Not that I wouldn’t be interested.

"But I didn’t want his voice to inhabit my thinking too much.

"I've got a lot of sympathy with him, a lot of sympathy. But I didn’t want to read his book."

A young Prince Harry will appear in the last season of the popular Netflix series.

Morgan clarified that the founder of the Invictus Games is only depicted "in (his) relationship to his older brother, Prince William".

The show's creator said The Crown's real focus is focused on the heirs to the British throne, including Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles, and Prince William.

There will be two parts to The Crown's sixth season.

The first section, which will air on November 16, will mostly concentrate on Princess Diana's final weeks and the events that followed her death.

The second, which focuses on then-Prince Charles and his wedding to Camilla in 2005, will be released on December 14.

It will also display the growing bond between Prince William and Princess Kate, who met at the University of St Andrews in 2001 and married exactly 10 years later.
