The Royal Family Has Some Grievances With Season 4 Of “The Crown”

November 16, 2020 / Posted by:

The Firm is reportedly “NONE TOO PLEASED” about their portrayal in the current fourth season of The Crown which covers events from 1979 through 1990, a period that includes Prince Charles’ marriage to Lady Diana and his affair with Camila Parker Bowles. And according to The Daily Mail, friends of the family say that Prince Charles feels exploited, Prince William is irritated, and as for Prince Andrew, well nobody wanted to say his name but we can presume he’s appalled anew at The Royal Family being depicted as “grotesque caricatures” by Netflix with little thought given to their feelings. Especially when we know who the REAL villain is and for once I’m not talking about Margaret Thatcher. No, it’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of course, for cashing in on his family’s pain by sleeping with the enemy.

Since The Firm can’t speak for themselves, they have to rely on sources to express their displeasure. And it was all sources on deck this week to vehemently refute many of the events depicted in this season of The Crown. According to DM:

Friends of Prince Charles launched a blistering attack on The Crown last night, accusing producers of the hit Netflix drama of ‘trolling on a Hollywood budget’.

Some of the Prince’s closest confidantes have accused the streaming giant of exploiting the Royal Family’s pain for financial gain and raged that ‘fiction is presented as fact’ in its twisted version of events.

In a series of highly unusual public interventions that demonstrates the depth of concern at the very top of the Royal Family, Palace insiders have lined up to slate the Netflix show.

‘This is drama and entertainment for commercial ends being made with no regard to the actual people involved who are having their lives hijacked and exploited,’ said one insider.

‘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.’

I’m like, come on! It’s not Netflix’s fault that Prince Philip and The Queen regularly take an elixir of nubile young virgin in their afternoon tea to guarantee eternal life and therefore are still alive to watch their legacies crumble! But it might be Meghan and Harry’s.

The fourth series, which launches today, covers Charles’s doomed marriage to Princess Diana, her eating disorders and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.

But the broadcaster’s willingness to traduce the reputation of the Royals has raised fresh questions among senior family members about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to sign a multi-million-pound deal with the California-based broadcaster.

‘There are raised eyebrows about Harry taking millions from the company that’s behind all this,’ said an insider. ‘After all where do much of Netflix’s profits come from? The Crown.’

For those viewers who require absolute verisimilitude in their evening soap operas, the DM article outlines all the places where The Royal Family never did that. Well, at least it didn’t go down exactly like that. Look, yes Camila did take Diana for lunch at a restaurant called Menage a Trois but she’s “not the bitch who is seen destroying Diana at Menage a Trois.” You see the difference, right?

Here a trailer for S4 featuring Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher who is, apparently,  exactly the bitch who is seen destroying the British working class.
