The Crown Season 6 will reportedly take place in the late 1990s and early 2000s, beginning with Princess Diana’s death in 1997 and ending in 2001, when Prince William and Kate Middleton began dating at St. Andrews. Filming for The Crown’s sixth season started in August. A table read was held last week. “It will be as tumultuous as it gets, I think,” West told Deadline. Despite occasional controversies surrounding Prince Charles, the actor would not hear a bad word about the heir to the British throne: “I love the man. He’s a force for good, he really is an extraordinary man.”

According to Deadline, there was an atmosphere of “anxiety behind the scenes” ahead of filming that moment, even though Diana’s actual demise won’t be shown on screen. “We’ve been dreading getting to this point,” a source told Deadline. “The countdown is two weeks and while we’re calmly carrying on it’s fair to acknowledge that there’s a certain anxiety; a palpable sense of being slightly on the edge. I mean, there’s bombshell sensitivity surrounding this one.”
