As he explained in an interview for The Today Show, Matt Smith himself has commented that he knows that some English royals have seen the series such as Prince Harry. “I met Enrique once, at polo, which sounds a bit great, but it wasn’t that great.

In the same interview he was asked if he knew if any other royals had seen The Crown. Matt Smith replied: “I heard the queen (Elizabeth II) watched the series and apparently she usually watched it on a projector on a Sunday night.”
