The Crown: “Enough is Enough, The Royal Family in Fury Against the Netflix Series

According to journalist and royalty scholar Emily Andrews, the royal family would be deeply irritated by the lies told, she said, in Netflix’s series, The Crown, whose final season airs this Sunday, November 15.

The success of Netflix’s The Crown series is clearly not a cause for celebration for the Royal Family of England. As the final season of the show, which chronicles the reign of Elizabeth II, arrives on screens at Buckingham Palace on Sunday, November 15, the “pernicious lies” and misrepresentations would be unbearable, reveals journalist and specialist in British royalty, Emily Andrews. “Too much is too much… For them, according to their friends, it is a question of ‘trolling with a Hollywood budget’ and ‘presenting fiction as a fact’,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday, November 15.

The situation would be all the more complex for the royal family as the last season features a key character in their story, Princess Diana. In her wake, it is therefore the tense relationship with the Queen and the love triangle with Camilla Parker-Bowles that are once again being dissected. Much to the chagrin of Prince Charles and his son, Prince William, who would be, according to Emily Andrews, “unhappy” to see that viewers may think that this “still recent and raw” story is the “truth”.

Invented scenes?

The specialist of royalty affirms it besides, this new chapter of the series would be “full of factual errors”. This tends to be confirmed by a source from Buckingham Palace who confided to the Mail on Sunday: “Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are portrayed in an unflattering way, but they confirmed that some scenes were invented for entertainment purposes”. Inventions that would have led Elizabeth II to privately overstep her own rule of “never complain”, even though the royal family has so far refused any public comment.

With the release of the new season of “The Crown” on Netflix, Buckingham was once again very angry with the series. Indeed, the palace cries out for lies and hopes that the public will not believe everything that is said in it.

It was much awaited by the fans of the series. Sunday, November 15, 2020, season 4 of The Crown made its appearance on the Netflix platform. Only, the success of the series does not seem to please the British royal family at all. If fiction continues to retrace the reign of Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace, we can no longer bear the “pernicious lies” and “false representations”, reveals the journalist and specialist of British royalty, Emily Andrews. “Too much is too much… For them, according to their friends, it’s a question of ‘trolling on a Hollywood budget’ and ‘presenting fiction as fact’,” she wrote on Twitter. In fact, according to her, the new season of The Crown is “full of factual errors”.

These comments echoed those of someone close to Buckingham Palace, who said that “Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are portrayed in an unflattering way, but they confirmed that some scenes were invented for entertainment purposes”. While the British royal family refuses to make any public comment on this series, it would seem that in private, the grandmother of Princes William and Harry think no less. She would even have complained about it, something very rare coming from her.

The Crown series divides

For his part, journalist Dan Wootton does not understand how the Palace can be so hard on the Netflix series. “I can’t believe that Prince Charles’ friends and staff are complaining about The Crown. What was Netflix supposed to do? Pretend he wasn’t a horrible husband to Princess Diana who treated a naive 20-year-old girl like dirt before systematically and brazenly cheating on her with Camilla? IT’S PAST,” he dropped on Twitter. A series that divides.
