It's been revealed that The Crown will now end with the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.

It will wrap up the sixth season of the series that is loosely based on the lives of the British Royal family.

Initial reports said the series would come to an end focusing on the events of 2002.

It was a year that saw the loss of Princess Margaret and then the Queen Mother.

The Sun now reports that it will follow the Royal Family until 2005.

Watch the First Look teaser for the fifth season below:

"It's a small but significant shift because it's seen as marking the start of an era which becomes more focussed on Princes William and Harry and their father," a source says.

"The marriage of Charles and Camilla is treated like the end of one turbulent period in the Windsors' story, and the start of a whole new one."

It has been said in the past by show creator Peter Morgan that he has a 20-year rule.

This means it was thought he would not cover Royal events that have taken place in the past 20 years.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "I'm much more comfortable writing about things that happened at least 20 years ago. I sort of have in my head a 20-year rule. That is enough time and enough distance to really understand something, to understand its role, to understand its position, to understand its relevance."

Charles and Camilla were married 17 years ago this year.

It seems that the final season will come out after their 18th anniversary, closer to his rule.

The forthcoming fifth season will cover Princess Diana's death in 1997.
