Earlier this month it was reported that Queen Elizabeth has not only watched The Crown, the Netflix saga about the early years of her reign, but that she rather liked it.

And while most people delighted in this newfound intel that the Queen is a fan of the series, show creator Peter Morgan would have rather been kept in the dark.

"You do hear these rumors. I never know whether to believe them," Morgan told the Hollywood Reporter when asked if he had heard the news. "In my own heart of hearts, I sort of want to pretend that she hasn't watched, and I hope she never does because then I can say, 'I don't know.'"

"Not knowing is the best way," he continued. "I want them to have that privacy, and I want us to have our privacy, and I don't want to feel that I'm writing this at all to get their approval. I don't want them to feel disappointed. I think it's good when both sides have their independence."

For what it's worth, actress Claire Foy, who plays the monarch, thinks the rumor is just that, a rumor.

"I can’t believe it," she said, when asked by Vanity Fair about the "royal source." "I hadn’t heard anything about it, and I will believe it when I see it is all I’ll say."
