She was eagerly awaited by fans of the series. Sunday, November 15, 2020, season 4 of The Crown made its appearance on the Netflix platform. However, the success of the series does not seem to please the British royal family at all. If in fiction we continue to retrace the reign of Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace, we would no longer endure “pernicious lies” and “false representations”, reveals journalist and specialist in British royalty, Emily Andrews. “Too much is too much … It is for them, according to their friends, to ‘troll on a Hollywood budget’ and to ‘present fiction as fact'”, she wrote on Twitter. Moreover, according to her, the new season of The Crown would be “riddled with factual errors”.
Comments which join those of a close friend of Buckingham Palace who affirmed that “Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are portrayed in an unflattering manner, but they confirmed that certain scenes had been invented for the purposes of entertainment.” If 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 do not think less. She even complained, a very rare thing coming from her.
Excl: Palace’s fury at the new Netflix series of the Crown The royals have never before hit out at the “pernicious lies” and misrepresentations in the lavish show but enough is enough … It is, say friends, ‘trolling on a Hollywood budget ‘&’ fiction is presented as fact ‘… pic.twitter.com/cT3GSX8dVt

The Crown series divides
For his part, journalist Dan Wootton does not understand how the Palace can be so harsh on the Netflix series. “I can’t believe 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 dealt a 20-year-old naïve like dirt before systematically and brazenly cheating on Camilla? IT’S PAST! ”he said on Twitter. A series that therefore divides.
Can’t believe Prince Charles’ mates and staff are moaning about The Crown. What was Netflix meant to do? Pretend he wasn’t a horrible husband to Princess Diana who treated a naive 20-year-old like dirt before cheating on her consistently and brazenly with Camilla? THAT HAPPENED!
