Although to date the British Royal Family has been extremely reserved in their comments on the vision of her presented by the series The Crown, from Netflix, for its fourth season, released just this Sunday, November 15, has finally broken that institutional silence.
And it is that some passages of new chapters have generated such anger among notable members of British royalty that from Buckingham they have already launched sharp criticism against the fiction created by Peter Morgan, which is accused of “Unreal” and “insensitive”.
According to the Sunday edition of the Daily Mail newspaper, people very close to Prince Charles have vehemently proclaimed themselves against the new season of the series.
The new episodes span from 1979 to 1990, and address, among other events, the engagement and marriage of Diana of Wales and Carlos, the princess’s eating disorders, and Carlos’s own relationship with Camilla Parker.
“This is a fictional drama, entertainment for commercial purposes that takes place without regard to the people involved whose lives are appropriated and exploited.
“In this case, events that happened in very difficult times 25 or 30 years ago are brought to light again without thinking about anyone’s feelings. That is neither good nor fair, especially when many of the things that are represented do not conform to the truth “, they affirm from the surroundings of Prince Carlos.
WORSE THAN A REALITY
The fourth season of the hit Netflix drama spans the years from the 1979 assassination of Lord Mountbatten to the fall of Margaret Thatcher in 1990.
But it is the description of an insensitive and selfish Carlos who marries an innocent Diana while maintaining his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, then married, that has caused the ire of the Prince of Wales.
In this sense, from Buckingham they denounce the malicious portrait that the series made of Carlos and Camila from the first moment, and points out that even reality shows “admit that some scenes have been invented for entertainment.”
“There is no intention of telling a carefully nuanced story, everything is very two-dimensional. This is ‘trolling’ on a Hollywood budget. The public should not be fooled into thinking that this is an accurate account of what really happened ”, they point out.
The new chapters of The Crown have not only raised the pressure among Carlos’s environment, but have also particularly irritated his son, Prince William.
According to close sources cited by the British newspaper, the Duke of Cambridge is not satisfied with the new season, since he believes that the figures of his parents “are being exploited and presented in a false and simplistic way to make money.”
“These events are not stories from 100 or even 50 years ago. The pain is still severe and not enough time has passed. Fiction becomes more attractive than fact and dramatizing these painful events of marital breakups and injured children is very insensitive “, they denounce.
