The highly anticipated sixth season of “The Crown” is on the horizon, with a premiere scheduled for next month. This next season of the hit Netflix series promises to revisit an important chapter in Prince Harry’s life, which he has often called his “biggest mistake.”
According to reports from People magazine, the series will look at an incident in the Duke of Sussex’s youth when he made headlines for donning a Nazi soldier costume at a costume party in 2005.
In “The Crown,” actor Luther Ford will play Prince Harry, guiding viewers through the controversial costume choice and the media frenzy that followed. Following the incident, Prince Harry quickly released a statement expressing his regret, saying: “I was truly sorry if I had offended or embarrassed anyone. It was a poor choice of costume, and I I apologize.”
Prince Harry has not been shy about acknowledging his regrets over the incident in various public forums, including his Harry & Meghan Netflix docuseries released last year. In his own words, he admitted: “Probably one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I was so ashamed afterwards. All I wanted to do was make things right.”
In his tell-all memoir, Prince Harry also blamed his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton for their role in the ill-advised costume choice. He wrote: “I rang Willy and Kate, asked them what they thought. A Nazi uniform, they said. I rented it, with a stupid mustache, and went back to the house. I tried everything. They both screamed. Worse than Willy’s. leotard outfit! Much more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point,” offering insight into the circumstances surrounding that evening fateful.
According to Netflix’s latest update, ‘The Crown’ season 6 is expected to air in two parts. The first part is scheduled for release on November 16, while the remaining episodes will follow on December 14.
