Queen’s granddaughter ‘hopes to God’ she doesn’t appear on Netflix hit The Crown

The late Queen's granddaughter, Zara Tindall has admitted she hopes her life doesn't feature on The Crown, which is set to return to streaming service Netflix later this year.

Zara, 41, has previously featured on the Netflix hit as a small child enjoying Christmas on the Sandringham Estate – played by an unnamed actress.

However, King Charles' niece hopes the programme will draw a line and won't continue into her life as she became older.

So far, viewers have seen The Coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth, the wedding of the then Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, the assassination of Lord Mountbatten and the death of King George, as well as the abdication.

Speaking previously on the House of Rugby podcast, mum-of-three Zara said: "I hope to God they don't go that far," before her husband Mike Tindall joked that Jason Statham would play him in series 35.

Discussing who she would like to see take on the role of playing her, Mike interrupted saying: "Charlize Theron maybe," to which Zara added: "Yeah, or my God, I've gone total blank with me," before host Alex Payne suggested Aussie beauty, Margot Robbie.

"Or Margot, that's a good one, or Justin Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel, obviously I look very similar to all of them."

Mike has previously admitted that he has seen The Crown, while other members of The Royal Family have remained relatively quiet about the series which has raised some eyebrows.

Speaking on his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast, about series four the rugby ace said: "Yeah, well it's getting to more things that people know about, isn't it, and have opinions about so, that's where it gets difficult.

"Remember everyone, it is a drama so it's going to be made into a bit of a drama."

It emerged earlier this month that series five of The Crown would be airing on November 9 which will see the introduction of the young Prince William and Prince Harry.

Imelda Staunton will star as Elizabeth, along with main cast members Jonathan Pryce, Lesley Manville, Jonny Lee Miller, Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki.

All cast members are new to the series.

It has been reported that the fifth season will focus on the early-to-mid 1990s.

While Netflix had previously announced that series five would be the last, they have later retracted this and said it will continue for a sixth series.
