The new season of “The Crown”, currently on Netflix, does not spare the couple formed by Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. While they are both the target of criticism, they have decided to make a radical decision.
It is probably a consequence that Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, did not expect. Now in its fourth season on Netflix, The Crown puts the spotlight on the extramarital relationship they had when the Prince was married to Lady Diana.
And the series isn’t exactly soft on clandestine lovers. “The Crown gives us the impression that the royal family is made up of horrible people who behave in a despicable way,” British journalist Penny Junor told the Daily Express. The Duchess of Cornwall was widely criticized by the audience for stealing the place of Lady Diana, who was then much loved around the world.
The anger was so great that some Internet users felt the need to show their incomprehension by commenting on the publications on the couple’s official Twitter account. “Money can buy you fancy clothes and jewelry, but not Diana’s class, charm or magnetic presence”, “You will never be able to replace her in a million years.
She’s our princess, now and forever,” you read. In front of the numerous critics, the couple decided to close the comments section on the social network. Since Tuesday, November 24, 2020, it is therefore impossible to comment on the couple’s publications.
The Crown has many repercussions
Some scholars of British royalty are concerned about the impact that The Crown series may have in the real world. “There is a real concern on the part of the Palace that the public will take everything that is said in the series as gospel.”
