‘The Crown’ Season 6 on Netflix

Filming for the 6 and final season of The Crown is underway, marking the beginning of the end for the Netflix drama, which has been keeping royal fans entertained for many years now.

Should the Queen pass away before filming is complete, the producers behind the multi-million-pound series have a 'plan' in place

on how they should proceed, which they refer to as their own Operation London Bridge.

The producers on The Crown have their protocols for the head of state's death, which will be particularly pertinent if it happens in the middle of filming.

They explained that production would be shut down immediately and would not start up again for at least a week, although added that there would need to be a discussion about when to restart depending on the circumstances.

Since its premiere on Netflix in 2016, The Crown has given fans a fascinating look into the world of the British royal family, and fans can expect the penultimate series to land on screens in November 2022.

It is set to dramatize many of the most talked about events in modern royal history, including the Queen's 'annus horribles as well as the dissolution of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage and Diana's tragic death in 1997.

New actors will be taking on the royal roles, with award-winning actress Imelda Staunton replacing Olivia Colman as the monarch.

Meanwhile, after Emma Corrin's fantastic portrayal, Elizabeth Debicki will be her replacement to play an older Princess Diana, while Dominic West will play Prince Charles, and the Two Popes star Jonathan Pryce will take on the role of Prince Philip.
