Netflixs The Crown Season Four? The Royal Reaction Says It All
The Crown season four has made waves after its release at the weekend.
The depiction of Princess Diana and her relationship with Prince Charles has particularly caught the audience’s imagination.
But what of the royals themselves? Have they been watching? What do they think?
In case you’ve been living under a rock the past week or so, the latest season of The Crown was released by Netflix, and boy has it got fans talking.
The introduction of Margaret Thatcher, played by Gillian Anderson, has been a particularly high point for me personally. I know there are inaccuracies in how Anderson has played the Iron Lady in The latest season of The Crown, but I don’t care.
It is, after all, a work of fiction based loosely on real events. It isn’t supposed to be an accurate historical representation.
I’ve watched already the first three episodes of The Crown, and I think it’s the best series yet. It’s a peek behind the doors of Buckingham Palace that perhaps the palace don’t want you to see because this is the truth in many ways. It’s a fair and accurate dramatization of what happened.
Could Mr. Burrell be angling for poor old Bob Lacey’s cushy job with Netflix? I wouldn’t put it past him.
It’s worth remembering The Crown is fiction
While the likes of Paul Burrell will try to make headlines claiming that the show is accurate, there is no way it could be, especially when the head writer has admitted that he makes most of it up in his head.
The show doesn’t claim to be historically accurate, although it is rather sneaky by not placing a disclaimer at the beginning letting the audience know that.
What we have now is a whole load of people who believe that the way Prince Charles acts in the show is actually what happened in real life.
