While fans are freaking out for the fourth season of The Crown, it is not the same case with Prince William. According to the latest reports, Prince William is unhappy with the depiction of his family in Netflix drama. He thinks that his parents are being “exploited to make money.”
The fourth season of The Crown, which launched yesterday, the most controversial yet, deals with the events of the royal family’s life between 1979 and 1990. It covers Charles’s turbulent marriage to Princess Diana, her eating disorders and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. It also shows scenes of Prince Charles verbally abusing Princess Diana and her confronting him about Camilla at their wedding rehearsal.
But friends of Prince Charles reveals that both of these events never actually happened. According to Daily Mail, they said: “The new series paints the Prince and Duchess in a very unflattering light but at least at the start of reality shows like The Only Way Is Essex they admit that some scenes have been invented for entertainment”.
“There is no sense of telling carefully nuanced stories—it’s all very two-dimensional. This is trolling with a Hollywood budget. The public shouldn’t be fooled into thinking this is an accurate portrayal of what really happened.”
“The Duke of Cambridge is none too pleased with it. He feels that both his parents are being exploited and being presented in a false, simplistic way to make money.
A source added that: “In this case, it’s dragging up things that happened during very difficult times 25 or 30 years ago without a thought for anyone’s feelings. That isn’t right or fair, particularly when so many of the things being depicted don’t represent the truth”.
