The streaming giant Netflix has become a popular entertainment tool worldwide, and has also experienced enormous growth during the pandemic. Still, not everyone is completely happy with the latest series being pumped out by the billionaire company.
The British royal family – and especially Prince Charles (72) – is reportedly not very happy with the latest season of “The Crown”, which focuses broadly on his legendary marriage to the now deceased princess Diana.
The fourth season in a row recreates and interprets the affair with his current wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles (73), in the 80s (while he was both engaged and married to Diana). This is said to have created strong reactions from Charles in particular, according to media such as the Daily Mail.
– “Trolling” with Hollywood budget
According to a source the newspaper has spoken to, Charles believes that he has been portrayed in an unfair way, and that the portrayal of the triangular drama is incorrect.
– This is drama and entertainment for commercial use, with zero regard for those involved – who get their lives hijacked and exploited, the source says.
Some of the prince’s most intimate contacts go so far as to claim that Netflix collects heaps of money at the expense of the family, and at the same time exploits the pain they have gone through. They label the series as “fiction about actual events”.
“The Crown” also covers several historical events and celebrities, including the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the assassination of Lord Mountbatten.
It is, however, the series’ portrayal of a cold and selfish prince Charles, who is forced into marriage with the innocent, 18-year-old Diana – who captures most of the public’s attention.
– There is a lack of how they tell a nuanced story – everything is very two-dimensional. This is “trolling” with a Hollywood budget. The public should not be fooled into believing that this is a correct portrait of what really happened, says a source the Daily Mail has spoken to.
Neither Netflix nor the creators of the series have responded to the criticism. The British Royal Family also has the benefit of making an official statement.
Signed huge agreement
And speaking of Netlix – this autumn it became known that Charles’ youngest son, Prince Harry (36) – together with Duchess Meghan (39) – has signed a huge agreement with the electricity giant.
The multi-year agreement means that the couple will be paid by Netflix to make documentaries, films and other programs.
Meghan, who is well acquainted with the film industry, and has worked as an actress in, among other things, the series “Suits”, has admittedly made it crystal clear that she has no plans to perform in front of the camera.
In a statement to Variety, the duke couple confirmed the collaboration with the power service. Everything they produce will be exclusive to Netflix.
– Our lives, both independently of each other and as a couple, have given us an understanding of the power of the human soul: For courage, determination and the need for connection, it says in the statement to the newspaper.
Neither Harry nor Meghan, who withdrew from the official royal family last year, have appeared in “The Crown”. It is asked whether the latter will be a theme at all, if the series’ action continues so far in the future.
