As former wife of Prince Charles and mother to the Queen's grandsons, Prince William and Prince Harry, Diana — "the people's princess" — is guaranteed to pop-up sometime in the near future on the Netflix series.

Considering William's status as future King, it only makes sense that this modern royal will make an appearance in the streamer down the line.

The youngest son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana made headlines in 2018 for tying the knot to American actress Meghan Markle to announcing they're expecting their first child. But he made headlines long before he met the former Suits
star. Based on what fans know about the show, it wouldn't be surprising to explore Harry's close bond with Prince Philip in juxtaposition with Philip and Charles's strained father-son bond.
The former prime minister of Great Britain served during some of the world's biggest historical events including the tragic death of Princess Diana, so it would only make sense for him to be included.

Yes, it's current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's father who served in the position long before his son. Trudeau and the Queen didn't always see eye-to-eye on matters, his inclusion in the series would be a nice touch to the show's affinity for history.

The ex-wife of Prince Andrew filled tabloid headlines throughout the '90s and as mother to the Queen's granddaughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, she should pop up.
Sir Anthony Blunt
The once revered art historian and former Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures caused pandemonium when it was discovered that he was a spy for the Soviets. The reveal was a major moment in the country's history.

The South African president visited with the queen on numerous occasions, and it would be difficult to skip his role in world history.

Actor-turned-president Ronald Reagan is just one of many commanders in chief who have met the Queen, but his major political actions taken in the '80s could make him a part of the series.

Barack and Michelle Obama
After Season 2's inclusion of former first couple John and Jackie Kennedy, the possibility of an eventual appearance by the Obamas is high. Sure, it may be a few seasons away, but the Obamas' good relationship with the royals ups their chances for an appearance.
Netflix's The Crown has yet to release its third season but Season 4 casting news is already swirling about.
According to The Sunday Times, Gillian Anderson (Sex Education, The X-Files) is set to appear as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in Season 4. The series follows the life of Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman and formerly Claire Foy) from her marriage to Prince Philip (Tobias Menzies and formerly Matt Smith) onward.
From Elizabeth to Prince Charles, these actors certainly look the part.
