Dominic West as Prince Charles in the upcoming season of Crown.
Two months into the reign of King Charles, England seems to be in deep crisis. First, their new king caused a lot of fury over the writing instruments, and now their prime minister has resigned after just 44 days in office. However, that is not the only thing that causes people in the UK to be seriously stressed. The highly anticipated fifth part of Crown, whose fictional but rather convincing description of the royals has been a hindrance to the existence of the palace, is preparing to chart Charles’ divorce from Princess Diana – a story that, according to most all accounts, doesn’t make Charles look great. While the recent Netflix sneak peek has most of us shivered in anticipation, it is said to have caused fear and panic throughout the palace, where everyone was very worried about the king’s death. What to look like when you tell your divorce story.
In response to this clip’s suggestion that Diana and Charles’ messy separation was an “all-out war”, Telegraph reports that high-ranking royals have “moved to protect the King’s reputation.” Considering Charles’s relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles and Diana’s tortured time in the palace are well documented, they’re about three decades too late, but sure. One source has apparently insisted that the show is “a TV series, not a documentary,” and another insider accused Netflix of being “exploitative” and “has no qualms about doing business.” discredit people.” Clearly, “the timing couldn’t have been worse,” considering England seems to have really warmed up to the king since he stepped into his role.
All of these worries have only escalated now that rumors suggest the season will see Charles trying to oust the queen alongside former prime minister Sir John Major. Major called this plot and overall, the entire show a “stuff of nonsense”. The media has also been criticized: British broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby called the performance “nonsense on stilts”, while a royal biographer suggested it was causing “significant damage to reception”. people’s knowledge of history.”
Another royal concerned about CrownDescribe the turmoil of the Windsor family: Dame Judi Dench. On Thursday, Dench wrote a letter to The Times urged the show to add a disclaimer reminding viewers that it was a “fictional drama”, writing that “the closer the TV series is to our present moment, the more likely it is to more willing to blur the line between historical accuracy and raw sensationalism.”
In response to Major’s comment, Netflix defended the show as a “drama based on historical events … imagining what could have happened behind closed doors in a decade or so. important to the royal family.” The show’s creator, Peter Morgan, told Diversity that the ’90s were “a rough time for the royal family and King Charles will almost certainly have some painful memories of that period,” but stated that the show wasn’t “bad for the he or the monarchy.” He added, “I have great sympathy for a man in his position.”
While I would hope that Netflix’s coverage of Charles and Diana’s divorce would probably fit in with the very unflattering accounts already out there, I personally don’t think the palace, or anyone else that cares. Concerned about the king’s reputation, there is nothing to worry about. Because intuitively, Crown makes Charles look absolutely amazing. As is customary every two seasons, the show reimagined all of its characters to more accurately reflect their ages, and took over the role from Josh O’Connor as Dominic West, who intended and quite handsome purpose.
For what it’s worth, Crown has actually painted a somewhat sympathetic portrait of Charles so far, and choosing West to play a man who says he wants to be a tampon is pretty generous, if you ask me. The palace would surely drool when given the opportunity to portray its king beautifully like this. This guy? Wearing a Barbour jacket? Sign me up!
More good news for Britain: West’s real-life son, who presumably possesses his pretty genes, is playing Prince William, conveniently reminding us that heirs used to be incredibly attractive. It looks like Meghan Markle isn’t the only royal to cut her Netflix contract.
