Royal Family News – The Crown Creator Dismisses Claim Show is Unkind to King Charles III

Royal Family News: Palace Has Concerns Over Show’s Depictions

Royal Family news reveals that, according to The Guardian, the upcoming season of the Crown will delve into some of the worst years for the British Royal Family, up to and including the bitter divorce between then-Prince Charles and his first wife, Princess Diana.

And now, it seems fallout from the show began last month when the Daily Telegraph published an article with the headline, “The Crown’s decision to show ‘all-out’ war between Charles and Diana raises concerns at Palace.” The article quotes an unnamed friend of King Charles who calls the Netflix series “exploitative.”

Nonsense on Stilts

Criticism over the show has begun trickling in from multiple sources. Former UK prime minister John Major called the series “a barrel-load of nonsense.” This was in response to the first episode for the new season which contains a fictitious scene where the then-Prince of Wales meets with Major to complain about his mother and plot to force her to give up the throne.

Author and historian Jonathan Dimbleby, for his part, said that The Crown was “full of nonsense” but emphasized that this episode was “nonsense on stilts.” Royal Biographer Sally Bedell Smith went as far as to accuse the show of “doing significant damage to people’s perception of history and their perception of the royal family.”

Peter Morgan Says Show Isn’t Unkind

Speaking to Variety, Morgan, and actors Elizabeth Debicki (Diana) and Dominic West (Charles), rejected the assertion that the show was unkind to the Royal Family. Morgan said he thinks that folks need to accept that the 90s was a “difficult time for the Royal Family” and that King Charles likely has “some painful memories” of that period.

He then added that just because the time was difficult for the King, it didn’t mean that history would be unkind to him or the Royal Family. “The show certainly isn’t. I have enormous sympathy for a man in his position – indeed, a family in their position. People are more understanding and compassionate than we expect sometimes.”

The Crown was Handled with Care

When the Queen’s death was made public, The Crown was in preparations for filming the show’s sixth season. Speaking to Variety about how the crew for the Crown did their “utmost” to handle everything with “sensitivity and truth and complexity,” Debicki said, “The amount of research and care and conversations and dialogue that happen over, from a viewer’s perspective, something probably that you would never ever notice, is just immense.

“From that very first meeting [with] Peter, I knew that I’d entered into this space where this was taken seriously [in] a deeply caring way.” Be sure and stay up to speed on all royally related stories. Return here often for more Royal Family news and updates
