However, Peter Morgan has no plans to feature Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's departure from the Monarchy or Prince Andrew's alleged involvement with Jeffrey Epstein in the final two seasons.
Explaining his reasons, Peter told The Hollywood Reporter: "I just think you get so much more interesting (with time).
"Meghan and Harry are in the middle of their journey, and I don’t know what their journey is or how it will end.
"One wishes some happiness, but I’m much more comfortable writing about things that happened at least 20 years ago."
Peter explained how he likes to let two decades pass before he includes it in the show to give it some historical context.
He continued: "Often things that appear absolutely wildly important today are instantly forgotten, and other things have a habit of sticking around and proving to be historically very relevant and long-lasting.
"I don’t know where in the scheme of things Prince Andrew or indeed Meghan Markle or Harry will ever appear.
"We won’t know, and you need time to stop something being journalistic."
His comments come after The Sun exclusively revealed Game of Thrones' Jonathan Pryce will portray Prince Philip in seasons five and six alongside Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II.
Meanwhile Elizabeth Debicki will take over from Emma Corrin as Princess Diana.
The Crown seasons 1-3 are available on Netflix.
