Thanks to both the terrific acting abilities of Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin, coupled with the extensive creative license applied to the royal story by the writers of The Crown, Prince Charles has come under fire.
Why? I’m not quite sure, but I have a feeling we’re set to find out when the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry story unfolds.
The portrayal of Prince Charles, and particularly Camilla Parker Bowles, has been nothing short of a disgrace. The show producers must have known the reaction their fictional account of royal life would cause for two very real people.
In my opinion, they didn’t care. And what’s even worse is that Prince Harry, desperate for dollars as he is, is prepared to work with a company that has thrown his father and late mother under the bus.
Prince Charles is seemingly happy – which is all that matters
The one thing lost in much of this is that Prince Charles is probably as happy now as he’s ever been.
Let’s not forget that the marriage to Princess Diana took a toll on him as well (the real marriage, not the fictional Netflix version).
It also affected his two sons.
Charles has navigated the tough years. Where he had not only to raise two boys who’d lost their mother but do so in the public eye. He had finally reached a place where he could relax a little.
