Peter Morgan's Golden Globe Zoom Background May Reveal An Upcoming 'Crown' Storyline

You'd be forgiven if, during the Golden Globes, you were too distracted by the giant printer/scanner in Peter Morgan's home office to notice the books displayed behind the Crown showrunner. But, now that the awards are over, it's time to take another look, because Morgan's Zoom bookshelf at the Golden Globes might actually reveal something important about Season 6 of The Crown.

From Kate Hudson's multi-generational family gathering to Jason Sudeikis' lonely fireplace, there was a lot going on on the Golden Globes Zoom feeds, but nothing was as revealing as Morgan's bookshelf, which featured a huge book on Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Based on the color scheme and lettering, this appears to be Blair's book A Journey: My Political Life, published in 2011. This can only mean one thing: Tony Blair is coming to The Crown. (It's also just a couple books away from what appears to be a book on former Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who appeared in Season 3 of The Crown.)

A book on Tony Blair is visible on Peter Morgan's right.

Fans shouldn't expect to see Blair on the Netflix drama anytime soon, however. Blair served as Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007, and The Crown left off Season 4 in the early '90s. Moreover, in August, when Elizabeth Debicki was announced as taking over the role of Princess Diana, the official statement noted that she would appear in Seasons 5 and 6. Princess Diana died in 1997, so the timeline suggests that The Crown won't hit 1997 until the final season.
