Netflix has confirmed that The Crown will be pausing production.

"As a mark of respect, filming on The Crown was suspended today," the streamer said.

"Filming will also be suspended on the day of Her Majesty The Queen's funeral."

The Netflix drama's showrunner Peter Morgan said today that series would pause season 6.

The show follows the ups and downs of her reign, beginning with her ascent to the throne in 1952.

"The Crown is a love letter to her and I've nothing to add for now, just silence and respect," he noted.

Season six of the Emmy-winning series was set to begin production this fall.

Producers of the series have reportedly had their own "Operation London Bridge."

"We have our own version of Operation London Bridge," an insider close to production told.
