The count Charles Spencerbrother of Princess Diana, criticized the series The Crown on Wednesday, 25. According to him, the production of Netflix should make it clear that this is a work of fiction based on real events.
Asked about the series on the TV show Lorraine, Spencer said he is not a “great spectator”. “I saw some episodes in the past, but I haven’t seen any of the most recent ones, even though my wife did,” said the journalist and author of history books.
The fourth season of the series about the British royal family was launched on November 15, and introduced Princess Diana, portraying her marriage to Prince Charles.
“I write about history, I inform you that what I write is not fiction, so if someone reads it, they will know it is what they will receive, and this is the same with all historians. I think it would help a lot The Crown if, at the beginning of each episode, they said that it is not true, but it is based on some real events, because then everyone would understand that it is a drama ”, he defended.
“Obviously Netflix wants to make a lot of money, because people are in this business, but I am concerned that people think it is completely true,” continued Spencer. He pointed out that he was not satisfied with the way his maternal grandmother, Ruth Roche, better known as Fermoy’s baroness, was portrayed in the series.
In the production, the baroness, who died in 1993, is responsible for “educating” Diana regarding the rules of the royal family: “She was portrayed in a particularly unpleasant way, it is not how she was. My grandmother may have died a long time ago, unfortunately, but she has a living daughter, 10 grandchildren alive, is it fair that people are destroyed like that? I think not”.
Spencer said that “it is necessary to be honest with the consumer”, and inform when a work is fiction. “They [os espectadores] they are consuming something that they assume is very, very realistic, and, as far as I know, and I don’t know many things because it wasn’t there, but from what I know, it’s not necessary ”, said the author.
On its page, Netflix defines The Crown as a “drama series [que] follows Queen Elizabeth II’s politics, rivalries and relationships and the events that made history “.
